Banks: If Fury Beats Wilder, He'll Get a Klitschko Next!

By Luke Furman

Undefeated Tyson Fury (21-0, 15KOs) has been calling for a fight with one of the Klitschko brothers. Johnathon Banks, heavyweight contender and trainer for unified champion Wladimir Klitschko, has advised Fury to fight fellow unbeaten Deontay Wilder (28-0, 28KOs).

After Wilder recently stopped Audley Harrison, he called for a fight with Fury. Banks says if Fury defeats Wilder - a shot at a Klitschko will certainly come next.

"I think Tyson Fury needs to fight Deontay Wilder. Deontay Wilder keeps calling him out. Once he beat Audley Harrison, he called out Tyson Fury. He wants to fight Tyson Fury. I guarantee you, if Tyson Fury fights Deontay Wilder, and he wins, his next fight will be against one of the Klitschkos," Banks said.

Fury is coming close to a shot without Wilder. If he beats Kubrat Pulev in a mandatory final IBF eliminator, he will become the mandatory challenger to Wladimir.

If wilder was already all set for his big epic showdown against a 40 year old basketball player on showbox then he shouldn't have called anyone else out.

The only inside scoop I have is what I get sparring with Jennings once a week. That's my avatar. [url]http://www.boxingscene.com/forums/showthread.php?t=567356[/url] Don't act like September 27 was too short a notice for December 8th... That's bologna.

[QUOTE=kokingbill;13353923]Man you don't know what you are talking about. Russell Peltz sent Golden Boy a contract to fight Jennings for his biggest payday back in like October when he called him out... He didn't want the fight not did Golden…

Now the question is, will Fury fight him? I doubt it. He has to fear Wilder's power, and he wouldn't have a tremendous size advantage over him either. I won't put all the blame on Fury, I'm sure his management…
