Tyson Fury could take on Wilder instead of Klitschko

Tyson Fury said that he would think about taking on Deontay Wilder and not Wladimir Klitschko, but just if he gets the right amount of money, and fans all over the world can’t wait to see who he will face next. Bookmaker software services were looking forward to seeing the fighter eventually clash with Klitschko, but perhaps a fight with Wilder can prove to be just as exciting.
Fury made it to the mandatory spot for the Ukrainian’s WBO title, and the 26-year-old will be very busy as he gets ready to face Christian Hammer on the 28th of February.
However, Fury could have no choice but to wait for a chance to take on Klitschko, as the fighter is willing to put his titles on the line when he goes head-to-head with Bryant Jennings on the 25th of April in New York.
Wilder turned into a new champion last weekend, as he took the WBC belt away from Bermane Stiverne, and he showed that he was all set to take on the fighter from Wilmslow.
A clash between these big men, who on social media spewed insults at each other, is a possibility for Fury, but just if there’s an agreement on the right amount of money.
He said: “It’s going to be a big fight if we both keep winning. We’ve a new world champion, new blood in the division who we’ve been talking about for a while. It will be a very explosive contest between us both – if it happens.”
When Fury was asked if he would be willing to have Wilder as his next opponent, he said: “Yes, if the money was right and it made sense.”
“I’m looking to take any big fight, regardless of who they are, as long as they generate interest from the public, that’s the fights I am interesting in.
“Hopefully he keeps winning until I fight him, then may the best man win. If the Wilder fight is put to me
“He has avoided me for years, but there is nowhere to hide now.”
Boxing fans around the world and bookmaker software services are expecting a very interesting fight – whoever Fury takes on. Many are confident that a showdown with Klitschko would be massive, but perhaps a clash with Wilder would also be huge. Now the fans just have to wait and see what’s next for Fury.
