Deontay Wilder Reveals Five-Man Shortlist For Next Fight Amid Tyson Fury Trilogy Dispute

Deontay Wilder Reveals Five-Man Shortlist For Next Fight Amid Tyson Fury Trilogy Dispute

Deontay Wilder has revealed that Dillian Whyte and Andy Ruiz Jr are amongst potential opponents that he could face next amid his ongoing dispute with Tyson Fury.

And Wilder confirmed he would trigger his rematch clause to set up a third fight with the 'Gypsy King.'

Fury, 32, claimed that he was done waiting for their rematch and planned for a homecoming fight in December, but the WBC champ will now return to the squared circle in 2021.

Wilder has blasted the Brit superstar for not honouring his contractual obligations and even accused him of cheating in extraordinary unsubstantiated claims.

When asked about a potential next opponent, the 'Bronze Bomber' told Brian Custer's Last Stand Podcast: "Realistically, Dillian Whyte would be on the list, Andy Ruiz Jr would be one on the list, Robert Helenius, Joseph Parker.

"Oleksandr Usyk, I would love to fight him because he called me out. There's a lot of guys on the list. When that phone rings just accept the opportunity."

Wilder has since parted ways with co-trainer Mark Breland and has been recovering after he required surgery on his bicep.

Deontay Wilder In 'Preliminary Talks' For Next Fight Amid Tyson Fury Trilogy Dispute

published ata month ago

However, the KO artist has claimed that he has "been ready [to fight] since September" and said that Fury isn't a 'man of his word.'

Wilder explained: "You can see me back in the ring sometime in the first week of January, the latest early February and we're looking through opponents now.

"We're not going to sit around and wait on a coward that has an obligation to fulfil but ran away from it.

"We're not going to sit around, we've got to get back in the ring. I've got a lot of fans looking forward to me stepping back into the ring and doing what I do best.

"I've been ready since September. You're not a man of your word, you're not fulfilling your obligation.

"I helped you out, I put millions in your pocket, I made you relevant, now it's time for you to do the same thing, that's all we're saying.

"They sat around, it was their obligation to put the fight on. They waited all the way till October came, then talking about we abandoned the contract. That's a lie!"
