Tyson Fury has COVID-19 and his super fight with Deontay Wilderwill almost certainly be postponed ... so says boxing insider Teddy Atlas.
Fury and Wilder are scheduled to fight July 24 ... their 3rd fight. The 1st was a draw ... and Fury KO'd Deontay in their 2nd bout in February 2020.
But, earlier today, rumors were swirling that someone in Fury's camp contracted the virus ... but it was unclear if that was accurate -- and if Tyson had the virus.

But, when Atlas joined theWise Kracks Podcastwith Bill Krackomberger and Jon Orlando ... he dropped some bombshell info.
“It looks like Fury actually has COVID. He had 1 shot. He didn't get both shots, both vaccines. And, it looks like he has the COVID,” Atlas says.
So, if Fury has COVID ... it seems all but a sure thing the trilogy fight will be postponed. There are rumors the trilogy fight could be moved to September ... but Teddy says he doesn't know if that's enough time.
“They're talking about pushing it back to September. I don't know if that's enough time.”
On Thursday, a Top Rank spokesperson -- Fury's promoter -- gave us the following statement.
“We continue to monitor the health status of Tyson and his team and the status of the event has not changed to date.”
