Tyson Fury Wants Deontay Wilder To Fight For The Vacant WBC Title
WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (32-0-1) has always been about seizing the opportunity. However, Fury hopes that Deontary Wilder (42-2, 41 KOs) has everything in his locker to fight for the vacant WBC title.
On Saturday, before a crowd of 94,000 people at the Wembley Stadium, the 33-year-old demolished mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte in the sixth round.
After securing the win, there were rumors about Fury’s retirement.
Even though there is no clarity, it does seem like the Wythenshawe native is considering the idea of hanging up his gloves for good. If he does retire, the WBC title will be vacant and he has expressed the thoughts of the No. 1 contender regarding the belt.
Fury and Wilder have battled against each other on three occasions.
It is fair to say that they have taken the audience’s breath away with their shots and anticipation. The first match took place in 2018 when the match finished as a draw after a controversial twelve-round battle.
In the last two battles, Fury emerged victorious.
“I would like to see Wilder fight for the belt considering his ranking. However, it is totally up to him,” Fury said.
The American is ranked No. 1 in the WBC rankings, with Joe Joyce sitting behind him as the No. 2.
