Deontay Wilder: Me vs. Tyson Fury Needs No Promoter

By Edward Chaykovsky

Heavyweight Deontay Wilder (31-0, 31KOs) believes a showdown with Tyson Fury will eventually happen next year. Wilder takes a stay-busy fight against Jason Gavern this Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California and then returns in the fall against WBC champion Bermane Stiverne. Fury has a rematch set against Dereck Chisora in London on November 22.

Wilder and Fury, on numerous occasions, traded insults through the press and social media.

"In the back of your mind you already know who you want me to fight...Tyson Fury," he told Sky Sports. "You know the way me and him have been dealing with all out on social media. I don't think we even need a promoter for this one."

"It's been going on for a couple of years, it's been me and him going back and forth, it's been comedy and me and him shooting our mouths off, so the publicity side of this is out there. Everyone wants to see this happen. We've already sold it! All that needs to be done is name a date, a time and a location and it will happen, next year...September."

Hes got Stiverne to concentrate on firsts before thinking Fury.

Wilder could stop him, but and I'm sure I'm not the only one I rate Wilder very very poorly. I think and have thought he is a long, powerful right hand that, credit to him, he can throw at range…

Wilder by KO. Possibly in round 1, definitely in rounds 1 to 3. He just needs to find Fury's chin, and with his long reach, that won't be a problem.

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK;14855139]Pretty sure that's the most popular opinion.[/QUOTE] Certainly looking that way, lol. I didn't know. I haven't paid that much attention.

If that fight happened, it would be an easy win for Fury.
