Tyson Fury has yet again caused a stir across boxing – by saying he wouldn’t rule out a FOURTH fight with long-time foe Deontay Wilder.
Fury told SecondsOut that, depending on whether or not he can secure an undisputed fight with Oleksandr Usyk, another meeting with Wilder could be on the cards.
“We will see. Don’t write off a fourth fight with me and Wilder. The bodybuilder ran away from the biggest payday he could ever get, making a million excuses.
If he beats Helenius, then they’ll make a final eliminator with Wilder and and Andy Ruiz. Then if he beats Ruiz, guess who’s back again?”
I don’t mind, because the man wants to fight and we’ve had three good fights. If he becomes mandatory and I don’t get this undisputed fight with the little middleweight [Usyk], then we’ll do Wilder – who wouldn’t want to watch that again?
The man’s got balls – he took me to f***ing court to get that third fight.”
After a controversial draw in their first meeting all the way back in 2018, Fury scored successive knockout wins over ‘The Bronze Bomber,’ with his most recent victory coming in the 11th round after a back and forth affair that saw Fury hit the canvas twice.
With negotiations to face fellow Brit Anthony Joshua collapsing yet again over the past few weeks, fans will hope Fury can agree terms to face Oleksandr Usyk for all the marbles in the heavyweight division in early 2023.
‘The Gyspy King’ commented recently that an opponent for his December 3rd date would be announced this week, with Dereck Chisora seemingly now the frontrunner.
Fury defeated Chisora, who seems visibly on the decline, handily on two occasions when the two met in their earlier careers, so it seems unlikely a trilogy bout would be too competitive.
