Tyson Fury has been ordered to face Deontay Wilder for a third time throwing his undisputed clash with Anthony Joshua into serious doubt.
The WBC heavyweight champion has been in arbitration with the American for months over a contracted third fight between the pair.
Fury, 32, beat Wilder back in February 2020 to take the WBC title after their first meeting ended in a controversial draw.
But in the contract there was due to be a third clash between the pair.
That was pencilled in for July 2020 but it was delayed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Then it was pushed back until December but both sides could not agree on a date.
Wilder’s team wanted to push it back further into early 2021 but Fury did not want to wait any longer.
