You wait ages for one huge heavyweight boxing to come along, and then two happen within the space of a fortnight! If Oleksandr Usyk beating Anthony Joshua was a tasty appetizer, then the final part in the Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder trilogy is the gourmet main meal. It’s all set to take place on Saturday October 9 in Las Vegas and we have all the details you need on watching Fury vs Wilder 3 – including the fight times, confirmed undercard and live stream channels around the world.
Fury toyed with his opponent in their second meeting back in February 2020, two knockdowns either side of a couple of undignified stumbles proving enough for the American’s corner to throw in the towel. The fight was stopped in Round 7 with Wilder bleeding from the mouth and ear.

But it was his ego that took the biggest hit, Wilder doing himself no favors in the aftermath of the fight by resorting to a series of increasingly far-fetched excuses.
Wilder has had to bide his time patiently for a shot at redemption, after his British foe tested positive for Covid-19 before the slated July rematch. But the waiting is now very nearly over and you’ll be able to watch a Fury vs Wilder 3 live stream very soon.

Where to watch Fury vs Wilder 3 and PPV prices
In the US, the fight will once again be a pay-per-view event jointly promoted by Fox Sports and ESPN Plus. At the time of writing, the event isn’t yet available to order, but the price last time out was a rather hefty $79.99 and the Fury vs Wilder 3 cost is unlikely to come cheap either.

In Australia it will be $59.95 on Main Event, which is up 10 bucks from last year’s fight.
Will there be a free Fury vs Wilder live stream?
For such a big ticket boxing event, it won’t surprise you to know that most countries have only -pay-to-watch options for Fury vs Wilder III.
Amazingly however, lucky boxing fans in Turkey were able to watch last February’s match for free courtesy of DMAX. We’ll be keeping our ear to the ground to find out whether the same will happen this time around.
And if Wikipedia is to be believed(!) then the Azteca 7 channel in Mexico will also have free-to-air coverage. But we have seen no verification at all of that fact, so it remains to be seen…

Who won Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder 2
Despite an enormous amount of weight gain and just two preparatory fights, Tyson Fury fought then-WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder for the first time in December 2018, being knocked down twice but otherwise looking the superior boxer.
The fight was, controversially, scored as a draw, but Fury dominated the rematch in February 2020, Wilder’s corner throwing in the towel in Round 7 after their man had twice been knocked to the canvas.
The 6ft 7in Wilder later claimed that his 40lb ring-walk costume tired him out, that his water may have been spiked, and that Fury scratched his ears with something concealed within his glove.
Who is Tyson Fury?
Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury is the undefeated WBC and The Ring heavyweight champion, and widely considered the lineal unified champion of the world.
The 32-year-old, who stands at a towering 6ft 9in, is one of the best pound-for-pound boxers in the world, and the only boxer to beat two champions with at least 10 successful title defences behind them.
He took the WBA, WBO IBO, IBF and The Ring titles off Wladimir Klitschko in 2015, but was forced to relinquish them due to a combination of factors, including contractual conflicts, doping violations and mental health issues.
Who is Deontay Wilder?
Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder is the former WBC heavyweight champion of the world, and is considered the most powerful puncher in the sport.
An astonishing 41 of the 35-year-old’s 42 career victories have come by way of knockout, though his most famous knockdown punch was defied by Fury, who rose from the canvas in the final round of their first fight, having looked out for the count.
The man from Alabama was undefeated before Fury beat him in their rematch last year.
