Fury will put his WBC belt on the line, as the the Gypsy King looks to underline his status as one of the greatest boxers of all time.
Where will it be held?
The trilogy bout will take place in Las Vegas at the iconic T-Mobile Arena, which has hosted the likes of Canelo, Conor McGregor and Manny Pacquiao in recent times.
The story so far
The heavyweight duo put their respective undefeated pro records on the line in their first encounter in December 2018.
After over 1,500 days out of the ring, Fury looked to be heading towards a remarkable victory on points before Wilder landed a trademark straight right to pole-axe the Gypsy King halfway through the 12th round.
In one of the most remarkable recoveries in fight history, Fury got off the matt to beat the 10-count and hang on for a draw.
In their February 2020 rematch, Fury outclassed the American with a masterful display, scoring a seventh-round stoppage to win the WBC world heavyweight title and set up a potential unification showdown with Anthony Joshua.
The 32-year-old looked set to finalise a fight for all four world titles against Joshua in Saudi Arabia. But the all-British affair fell through when Wilder's team won an arbitration hearing stating The Bronze Bomber had a right to a third fight with Fury.
What's Tyson Fury saying?
"He's getting seriously smashed to bits," Fury said. "I'll give him another shoulder injury, another bicep injury, another leg injury.
"One round, you're going. I have got your soul, your mojo, everything. I own you.
“It was a crazy roller coaster toward this fight. I always say, ‘you’re never fighting someone, until you’re in the ring opposite them.’ It wasn’t hard for me to adjust to fighting Deontay Wilder again. It’s what I’m paid to do.
"I hope Deontay brings something different for this fight. He needs to, if we’re facing facts. I hope he brings a challenge. Hopefully Malik Scott can bring the best out of Deontay Wilder.
“The beating from the last fight has had a physical, mental and emotional effect on his life. I was worried about him after the way I beat him. Deontay Wilder is a one-trick pony.
"He’s got great one-punch knockout power. I’m going to run him over like I’m an 18-wheeler. I guarantee he doesn’t go past where he did in the second fight.
"I’m looking for a big knockout straight away. He said all this stuff about bloodshed last time and we all know what happened.”
What's Deontay Wilder saying?
“I didn’t feel any way about Fury trying to negotiate another fight. We knew we were in the right and we knew they couldn’t run. Silence is golden. I’ve been happy and even happier in my time off.
"I’ve had time to spend with my family and now I’m rejuvenated and ready to go. I’ve been training non-stop during the pandemic and I’ve been building. All this time between fights is going to be good for me and bad for him.
Wilder has also vowed to run over Fury "like a train" when the pair renew hostilities for a third time after bench pressing over 300lbs in a recent training video.
Fury's size advantage was plain to see in the second fight as the Gypsy King over-powered his American opponent in a one-sided contest.
Wilder later put the defeat down to his energy-sapping ringwalk costume and the Alabama native is taking no chances this time around as he looks to pack on muscle.
"I'm going be a train," said Wilder. "You say a semi-truck, I'm going to run you over with a train, baby.
"Three hundred and 10 [lbs]! You better get your weight up."
