Fury to face Anthony Joshua after defeating Wilder

Wilder vs Fury 2 Highlights

Fury (30-0-1, 21 KO) now has to be considered the clear No. 1 heavyweight in the world, even considering he’s certainly not the undisputed champion, what with Anthony Joshua holding three of the four major sanctioning body titles. But Fury’s win gives him the WBC belt, which is a lot easier for most people to “get” than just the claim of being lineal champion, and he also gets the Ring Magazine belt back.

It was a truly dominant performance for Fury, who at 31 should have years left of his prime if he sticks around in the sport.

Wilder has the option to trigger a third fight but former cruiserweight world champion Haye believes the Bronze Bomber will have no interest in a trilogy given the comprehensive nature of his defeat in Las Vegas.

Instead, Haye believes all roads lead to a unification match between Fury and Joshua which has the capacity to be the biggest fight in British boxing history, Metro Uk reports.

He said, “I am very sure the clause for a third fight won’t be exercised. That won’t be realised 100 per cent because what chance does Wilder have what more can he do next time?

“Deontay Wilder does not want any more of that work he doesn’t want that type of action he was outgunned in every department. What confidence can he take from this? Nothing at all.

“I think it will be the undisputed, undisputed (Joshua next). There’s only one fight to be made and it’s a fight that everybody will have to see whether you are a boxing fan or not.

“It has never happened before. All of the belts (are up for grabs), it will be the biggest fight in boxing history.”
