Wilder Wants Winner of Fury v Klitschko Re-Match

But could the IBF belt remain in isolation?

When Tyson Fury shocked the world and dethroned the long-time heavyweight champion of the world Wladimir Klitschko, in Dusseldorf, it finally looked that heavyweight boxing was on the verge of getting a unified champion.

Across the pond Deontay Wilder was making noises about fighting Fury, thereby moving total unification of the belts a step closer.

Sadly the actions of the IBF, in stripping Tyson of his belt due to his commitment to a re-match with Wladimir, saw that ambition slip away.

But it seems that Wilder still has huge ambitions of fighting the winner of the Fury v Klitschko re-match.

Wilder is set to defend his WBC belt against Artur Szpilka in Brooklyn, New York, on 16th September, but has already spoken about facing the winner of the aforementioned rematch, remarking,

“Win, lose or draw, we just need a date and a time.

“I heard Klitschko put it out there that he wants to fight me for my WBC belt. That’s on the table too. I’ll be looking forward to that as well. If I beat Tyson, what would they say? He’s the younger guy. Even if I stopped Klitschko in one round, I’m one of these guys that wouldn’t get full credit.”


If the fight can be made, it’d be interesting who, out of the trio, would emerge as the multi-titled champion. If it were to be Fury, I doubt we’d see a complete unification of the belts, not after the manner in which the IBF treated their new champion only a matter of weeks ago.
