Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder are set to lock horns for a third time this year to settle the score once and for all in their heated rivalry.

Here, Sportsmail provides you with the lowdown for what is known about the third installment of Fury vs Wilder so far.

What's the story so far?

Both fights have lived up to expectation after plenty of talk between the two heavyweights.

Fury had to peel himself off the mat twice in their first fight inside the Staples Center, but most observers still believed he was heading to a points victory.

However, the bout was controversially scored as a draw, forcing the pair to fight it out again over a year later.

That rematch took place last month and this time there was no doubt who the winner was.

Fury was dominant from start to finish, outclassing his rival in every aspect before the American's corner threw in the towel in the seventh round.

Wilder has now activated the rematch clause in the contract, as confirmed by Top Rank promoter Bob Arum, who handles Fury's fights.

'Wilder and his representatives formally notified us last night that they have accepted the rematch and are going forward,' Arum told Ringside Reporter on Sunday.

Where will it be staged?

Sorry, British boxing fans, but it looks like the third fight will again be held in the United States.

The first fight was staged inside the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the rematch at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and there are suggestions this could happen in Sin City for a second time.

After his victory over Wilder, Fury said he'd want a trilogy bout back in Las Vegas with it to be contested inside the 70,000-seater Allegiant Stadium which will become home to the Las Vegas Raiders after its completion later this year. 

He told BT Sport after his brilliant win: 'Great fights should have trilogies. And I want it here, just across the road, at the Raiders Stadium outdoors in front of 70,000'.

However, Arum confirmed that the fight would most likely return to the MGM Grand.

'One hundred percent Fury vs Wilder III will be in America,' Arum told World Boxing News

'MGM has been very good to us and the fight did extraordinarily well. It had a gate of close to $17million (£13m). They are already talking about raising the prices so that the gate would be over $20m (£15m). 

'Not to mention, there's a great appetite for it. We sold every ticket and they were scalping tickets for the fight in the street. So yeah. why wouldn't we do it again?'

Fury's co-promoter Frank Warren also confirmed that it would likely take place in the US as it stands.

Warren told talkSPORT: 'Yes, he's invoked the rematch clause so that is what we are working towards.

'It's contracted to take place in the States. That is in the contract and set in stone unless anyone agrees differently. But at the moment it is due to take place in the US.'

How long do we have to wait?

Not long this time. In fact, it looks like it could be a quick turnaround with the trilogy fight expected to take place this summer.

It took over a year for Fury and Wilder to have their rematch but according to Arum their trilogy bout is provisionally slated for July 18, just days before the Tokyo Olympics is due to start.

Arum told Ringside Reporter: 'It's going to happen in the summer, before the Olympics. Middle
