    No live gate. Not enough money. Not as much interest as the 2nd fight. Last fight wasn't competitive.

    Lot's of reasons bundled together is my guess, but ultimately not financially viable right now.

    The second fight should have sold at least 1 million. Now Fury has left zero doubt who the better boxer is between the two.

    I think the Wilder has the rematch rights through 2020. If Fury fights someone else before those expire, he is open up to be found liable in a lawsuit form team Wilder. Fury saying he will fight in 2021 would seem to back this up.

    My guess is the money just wasn't there to afford a full card, so the entire plan imploded.
