Bob Arum, the promoter of Boxing star Tyson Fury was furious about how laid-back approach he had during his training camp before he ultimately tested positive for COVID-19. This had resulted in his July 24th trilogy match against former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder being pushed back. It has been noted that some believe that Fury did not want to fight Wilder and that he was careless on purpose. Moreover, Fury didn’t seem all that geared up for fighting Anthony Joshua either.
Bob Arum opens up on Tyson Fury
Eddie Hearn was working on setting up a fight with Joshua in Saudi Arabia on August 14 but Fury was complaining about ring rust, sounding like he wasn’t eager to take the fight with AJ. ‘The Gypsy King’ had blew it by only getting one shot instead of two of the Covid-19 vaccination. He was extremely careless and believed that a second shot might result in him getting adverse reactions. Jake Paul Reveals Paycheck For Fight With Logan
When Fury did test positive for Covid, the illness only lasted for a short period but the fight with Wilder was still postponed until October 9th. According to the Top Rank promoter Arum, Fury and his gym had no controls, with people coming and going.
Arum spoke to WBN and said:
“I never knew that he hadn’t (received his second Covid-19 vaccination shot) until he got sick. I really screamed at all of them. It was a complete f*** up. The people in the gym, I mean, we had no controls. It was like every sparring partner brought his friend, other corner people. SugarHill had these Russians (he trains) running around. There was absolutely no precaution taken, which a lot of it was our fault. We should have been the adult in the room. There was absolutely no precaution taken, which a lot of it was our fault.

The Fury vs. Wilder 3 fight has been rescheduled for October 9th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
