WBC Champion Fury finally looked set to take on Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia this year, but after Wilder's team won an arbitration hearing, the American waived his rights to a third fight against The Gypsy King.
The pair have clashed twice already in two exciting bouts; the first giving boxing fans one of the greatest moments in the sport's history as Fury rose from the canvas to battle his way back to a controversial draw.
A second fight was created following the controversy, but Fury made no mistake of letting the encounter go to the scorecards with a flawless display to win by seventh-round KO.
Now the pair will meet again this summer and we have everything you need to know ahead of Fury vs Wilder 3:
