Wilder Will Return In A ‘Massive Fight’ – Says Fury

Tyson Fury has said Deontay Wilder will box again in a ‘massive fight.’

Wilder’s stock dropped after his one-sided loss to Joseph Parker. The Bronze Bomber only won a round across all three judges’ scorecards, ending the prospect of an Anthony Joshua fight. A deal with Joshua was in place subject to both fighters winning their next fights.

Joshua stopped Otto Wallin, making him quit on the stool, but Wilder could not do the same against Parker. The Bronze Bomber denied claims he was retiring and promised to return back stronger. Now, Fury has said Wilder’s next fight will be massive.

“I think he can come back, sure. I think he’s fighting again — I actually know he’s fighting again but I can’t drop who and what date. But it’s coming soon, a massive fight with Wilder involved,” Fury said

Wilder’s next opponent is unclear. The top heavyweights are currently tied up. Fury takes on Oleksandr Usyk, with the winner expected to face Anthony Joshua or Francis Ngannou. Zhilei Zhang takes on Joseph Parker, while Joe Joyce is tied up with Kash Ali. That leaves Daniel Dubois with an outside chance of getting the fight.

The former WBA Heavyweight Interim Champion lost to Usyk in a controversial fight after seeing his body shot declared a low blow as Usyk hit the canvas. Usyk then stopped the Brit in round nine. Dubois bounced back with a big win, stopping Jarrell Miller in his last fight. A victory for Wilder over Dubois could see him being talked about once again.
