LiveScore's Gavin Glicksman pulls together some of the biggest stories from the world of boxing.

One last dance

Tyson Fury has vowed to make it a quick night’s work when he faces Deontay Wilder in their trilogy fight on July 24. 

The WBC world heavyweight champion appeared on course to collide with Anthony Joshua in a money-spinning undisputed showdown until Wilder forced a third bout.

And Fury, 32, is confident he will take out the American in less time than he did when their last encounter was stopped in the seventh round back in February 2020.

The undefeated Gypsy King said: "I gave my game plan away the last time because he wasn't good enough to do anything about it. I'll do the same thing this time.

"Wilder is a one-trick pony. What will I do this time? I'll run him over like I'm an 18-wheeler. 

"I guarantee he does not go past where he did before [the seventh round].

"Before, I only had five or six weeks. This time, I've had 18 months. I'm building my weight up because I'm looking for a big knockout straight away. 

"I don't believe he's mentally, physically or emotionally involved. He's doing this for the wrong reasons and people wind up getting hurt when they do that. 

"I get paid to beat up on people. Not a bad job really!"

A tense face-off between the duo lasted FIVE minutes on Tuesday as they promoted next month’s Las Vegas showdown at a press conference. 

Wilder, 35, kept hold of the WBC title courtesy of a draw when he first met Fury in December 2018.

But he lost both the gold and his undefeated streak in the rematch, hitting the canvas twice before the contest came to an abrupt halt when his former trainer Mark Breland threw in the towel. 

And Fury believes the outcome will be the same at the T-Mobile Arena when they trade leather once again. 

He added: "For the last 18 months, I’ve been living rent free in Wilder’s head. 

"He got smashed to pieces in our last fight and for some reason he wants it again. Let’s go. The Big Dosser is getting knocked spark out.”

The Juggernaut is back

Before Fury and Wilder go toe-to-toe in Las Vegas, Joe Joyce will face Carlos Takam on the same night. 

Joyce was last in action back in November when he defeated Daniel Dubois to capture the vacant European title and claim the British and Commonwealth belts from his domestic rival. 

And a win for the undefeated heavyweight against former world title challenger Takam at Wembley Arena will cement his status as the next WBO mandatory challenger.

Joyce, 35, said: "I only want competitive fights but everyone wants to avoid me. 

"Takam didn’t even want to spar me in Las Vegas, so I’m surprised he’s taken the fight. 

"He has operated at a high level for a long time but on July 24 the Juggernaut will be activated… and I will run him over." 

World Boxing Super Series returns

Women's boxing is set to receive a huge boost when eight top super-featherweights battle it out for the Muhammad Ali Trophy.

For the first time since its inception in September 2017, the World Boxing Super Series will not turn the spotlight on men as it returns for a sixth edition.

And WBSS chief boxing officer Kalle Sauerland cannot wait to see who will join Aleksander Usyk, Callum Smith, Josh Taylor, Naoya Inoue and Mairis Briedis on the list of former winners.

Sauerland said: "It’s been something we have talked about since our inauguration and it gives me great, great pleasure to announce the women, the super-featherweights, for season III. 

"Competition is hotter than ever. The super-featherweight division has such depth and also allows those in the divisions around it to take part. 

"We feel this is the time, the right time. Women’s boxing has never been this good and we are looking forward to a spectacular season."
