Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury Next?
3kingsboxing.com has learned that promoter Frank Warren is currently in serious negotiations with manager of Deontay Wilder, Shelly Finkel. There is a possibility the fight will take place in November or December.
Although Fury is coming back from a three year hiatus, this news shouldn’t come as a surprise. The confident former heavyweight champion of the world has said on more than one occasion that he fancies a fight with the WBC champion. Regardless if he only has one or two tune up fights prior.
After the failed negotiations with Anthony Joshua, Wilder seemingly has other lucrative options. Also previously reported, WBC president Mauricio Sauliman stated Wilder doesn’t have to face mandatory challenger Dominic Breazeale until next year.
Also worth noting is a rematch with Luis Ortiz is on the table as well.
If Wilder-Fury gets made, it automatically ranks in the top three biggest heavyweight fights to make. Hopefully negotiations go smoothly and a deal can be reached.
