Despite having fought just once in two years, Deontay Wilder says he’s open to fighting anybody.
Wilder has been inactive following two bruising knockout defeats to Tyson Fury after battling to a draw in the first of their trilogy of fights.
He has been in the ring just once since then, and for just one round, back in October of 2022 when he knocked out Robert Helenius. Following that he has been linked with both Andy Ruiz Jr and Anthony Joshua, though neither fight materialised.
He is now set to fight on a huge card in Saudi Arabia on December 23 against Joseph Parker. Joshua is on the same card against Otto Wallin and the WBC has said that, should both men, win they could be called to fight one another in a final eliminator for the belt currently held by Fury.
But, with Wilder claiming he has plenty left in the tank, what other fights are out there for him?
“He’s been doing what he’s supposed to do with the fights that have been put in front of him. I wish him nothing but the best and of course with all of them, not just him, as long as I’m in the business and they’re in the business and everything is going good and people want to see it, I don’t shy away from anyone, I don’t duck anyone.”
Anderson has knocked out all but one of his opponents, with only Charles Martin taking him the distance. As such, a meeting with Wilder would surely be explosive.
