But now the WBC heavyweight king has contracted the virus.
Dan Rafael stated Fury does have symptoms and is feeling ill.
The reporter added assistant trainer Andy Lee, featherweight Isaac Lowe and former WBO heavyweight champ Joseph Parker also returned positive test results.
And that guarantees the fight cannot go ahead on July 24 as planned.
A new date is being targeted later in the year with October 9 the likely option with major events in both August and September already in the boxing calendar.
Fury and Wilder drew their first instalment before the British star crushed his American rival in their rematch in 2020.
He was due to head back to Las Vegas for fight No3 two weeks from now but he will need to self-isolate.
It is understood Fury has had his first coronavirus vaccination but not his second jab.
