Tyson Fury figures a fourth fight with Deontay Wilder would sell well in England, where the unbeaten WBC heavyweight champion is a bigger star than ever in his home country.

More than 60,000 tickets have already been sold for Fury’s unforeseen third fight against British rival Dereck Chisora on Saturday night at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London. Wilder’s pulverizing power, in addition to their intense dislike for one another, would make Fury-Wilder IV more marketable than many other fights that could be made for Fury in his homeland.

Fury frankly is tired of fighting Wilder, though, and believes he has beaten the former champion three times – once on points, again by technical knockout while Wilder was still standing and the third time by brutal knockout. Their first fight, a 12-rounder in December 2018, officially resulted in a widely disputed split draw, which eventually led to a rematch Fury won by seventh-round technical knockout in February 2020.

The 34-year-old Manchester native nevertheless sees little reason to step into the ring with Wilder a fourth time, unless the WBC forces Fury to do it.

The WBC ordered an elimination match at its annual convention late in October between Wilder and Andy Ruiz Jr. The winner of that 12-rounder in which Wilder (43-2-1, 42 KOs), the WBC’s number one-ranked contender, will battle the second-rated Ruiz (35-2, 22 KOs) will become the mandatory challenger for Fury’s championship.

Wilder and Ruiz are expected to fight at some point next spring in a pay-per-view main event. Fury hopes Ruiz wins because at least a mandated match with the former IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO champion could afford Fury the opportunity to face a new opponent.

“I would like to see Andy Ruiz knock his motherf------- ass out,” Fury told BoxingScene.com. “Because I’m sick of looking at Deontay Wilder. I need another man to train for. I need another guy to fight. We fought three times already. I think the guy’s a piece of sh!t as a person. I don’t like him. He’s an excuse-maker. He gets beat by a better man on the night, and he can’t take it. So, he’s gotta think of a million reasons why he lost. So, he’s not a great sportsman, in my opinion, and I hope Ruiz knocks him out cold.”

A hopeful Fury laughed and admitted, however, that it’s more likely that the hard-hitting Wilder knocks Ruiz unconscious.

“I hope so, but probably not,” Fury said. “Probably Wilder will hit him with one shot and knock him out cold. But I hope Andy smashes his ass!”

The 37-year-old Wilder returned successfully October 15 from his devastating 11th-round knockout loss to Fury a year earlier. The Tuscaloosa, Alabama, native knocked out Robert Helenius with a right hand late in the first round of their 12-round main event at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

The immediate, destructive nature of Wilder’s comeback win impressed Fury, who pointed out that no opponent had ever done that to Finland’s Helenius (31-4, 20 KOs).

Fury is still much more interested in facing unbeaten Ukrainian southpaw Oleksandr Usyk than Wilder a fourth time if Fury defeats Chisora in their third bout. And if Wilder defeats Ruiz, Fury would rather watch his rival fight the former champion Ruiz upset, Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs), interim WBO champ Joe Joyce (15-0, 14 KOs) and eventually Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs), who won the IBF, IBO, WBA and WBO belts from England’s Joshua 14 months ago.

“Styles make fights and, you know, different fighters have different styles,” Fury said. “We’ll see what happens with all these great matchups. But one thing I know is there are some great matchups to be had in the heavyweight division right now. I’d like to see Usyk and Wilder. I’d like to see Joshua and Wilder. I’d like to see Wilder fight them all. I’d like to see Wilder have a go at these guys. I wanna see if they can do any damage to ‘The Bronze Bomber.’ ”

The 6-foot-7, 238-pound Wilder floored Fury twice in the fourth round of their third fight in October 2021 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The 6-foot-9, 277-pound Fury got up from those two knockdowns, dropped Wilder three times altogether and finished off Wilder with a devastating right hand in the 11th round to retain his title.

Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) has since knocked out England’s Dillian Whyte (29-3, 19 KOs) in the sixth round of his most recent fight, which helped draw a record crowd of approximately 94,000 on April 23 to a sold-out Wembley Stadium in London. The confident Fury, also a former IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO champ, is consistently listed as at least a 20-1 favorite to beat London’s Chisora (33-12, 23 KOs), who has already lost twice to Fury.

The third Fury-Chisora clash will be the main event of a BT Sport Box Office pay-per-view show in the United Kingdom and Ireland (6 p.m. GMT; £24.95). Fury-Chisora III will headline a five-fight event ESPN+ will stream in the United States (1 p.m. ET; 10 a.m. PT).
