  Anthony Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn teases Deontay Wilder fight if Tyson Fury loses The heavyweight division has two huge fights on the horizon.There has been plenty of talk surrounding who Joshua will fight after Usyk, even though the Ukrainian is sure to pose an extremely stern test of his own.

Tyson Fury has asked US President Joe Biden to make a special exception to Covid rules so his legion of supporters can cross the Atlantic to cheer him on in his trilogy clash with Deontay Wilder. The pair will meet for a third time in Las Vegas on Saturday.

There may only be a few days to go until fight night, but Fury hasn't given up hope that he might be able to convince the president to allow British citizens to enter the US for the bout.

Rules preventing the entry of those travelling directly from the UK are set to be relaxed, but not in time to allow anyone to fly in for Fury vs Wilder 3.

  Mike Tyson's former trainer believes Iron Mike could knock Deontay Wilder out 'in a minute' Is boxing as tough as it used to be?Past interviews are being brought to the forefront of peoples minds; with one of these being Mike Tyson's former trainer claiming that his past fighter would beat Wilder in under a minute.

So while the T-Mobile arena would ordinarily have had a section of Fury fans cheering on the Gypsy King with thousands more Britons watching in bars on the famous Las Vegas strip, the crowd is likely to be even more pro-Wilder than it would have been.

In an attempt to change that, Fury called on Biden to allow his fans in for the big event.

"I've been putting the pressure on for the Brits to be allowed to invade Las Vegas again and make it like my second fight with Wilder."

Current rules, which force British citizens to spend a minimum of two weeks outside of the UK before travelling to the States, are not set to be relaxed until November 1.

There are 'National Interest Exemptions', though, which can be granted to international sports stars as well as those who would bring benefits to the US.

Fury continued his plea by arguing that those British tourists would help breathe life back into Las Vegas after its huge hospitality industry was decimated by the pandemic.
