The third fight between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury will not take place on July 18 as originally scheduled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Top Rank chairman Bob Arum told Dan Rafael of ESPN.com as much Tuesday.

Rafael noted the fight is still on track to be the next matchup for both boxers, but it is being pushed back as the sports world reacts to the pandemic.

Fury won their last matchup on Feb. 22 via knockout in the seventh round, and Wilder used his contractual right to an immediate rematch as a result.
