Tyson Fury has targeted American knockout specialist Deontay Wilder as his next opponent following the cancellation of his February showdown with David Haye. Haye is currently recovering from shoulder surgery and contemplating his future in the ring after being advised by doctors to retire. It is the second time in the space of two months that the former heavyweight champion has pulled out of a fight with Fury after a cut sustained in training scuppered their original September showdown.

A furious Fury took to Twitter to vent his rage at Haye before turning his attention to fellow undefeated heavyweight 'The Bronze Bomber'. Wilder has racked up a 30 straight victories by knockout with none of his opponents managing to last longer than four rounds.

"You talk the talk, @BronzeBomber, now it's time to walk the walk!" Fury tweeted. "Wilder v Fury at the Phones 4U Arena February 8th - Let's get it on!!

"You and me is the biggest and most exciting fight in world boxing! You've had banter with me and my promoter @HennessySports so get someone to call Mick and let's give the fans a real fight!!"

[QUOTE=beez721]I dont think wilder is all that fast. he has power for sure but he telegraphs his punches. the better fighters should be able to block or slip most of them. he also looks confused and unsteady when his opponent is attacking. fury isnt a huge puncher but he hits much harder than any...

[QUOTE=Riley Freeman]Wilder is gonna put that glass chin clown to sleep.[/QUOTE] I actually think wilders chin is even weaker

[QUOTE=Trudoe]What people don't realize about Wilder, is that the danger in fighting him is not the big straight right. Wilder is a very athletic BIG man, and he hits people with regular jabs, straights, little hooks etc that in accumulation are too much for anyone to take. Do you see how FAST ...
