Deontay wilder is open for a fourth fight with Tyson fury


Deontay Wilder is keeping the door open to a fourth fight against Tyson Fury, despite being brutally finished in their last two heavyweight title showdowns.

Wilder dominated atop the heavyweight division for six years before Fury relieved him of his WBC title in February 2020, with the Brit also stopping him in their trilogy the following year. However, it seems that the former champion has never fully come to terms with those two losses, and has previously accused Fury of cheating in their second bout.

The pair fought to a draw the first time they met in 2018, before the two Fury victories. And Wilder has been told that if he can beat Robert Helenius next month in New York and then get past Andy Ruiz Jr in his next outing that the WBC will make him the top contender for the belt once again.

"I think that there's definitely a chance of a fourth fight again," Wilder told Sky Sports . "Boxing is a business. Many people call it a sport but it's not a sport. The heavyweight division is very small. I'm still a big fish in the business, especially here in America. As long as we're all in the same division and all still currently fighting, why not? It only can lead to that. With all that being said, it's definitely a possibility."

Another way that Wilder could get himself back in the ring with Fury would be by becoming unified champion with the other three major belts by beating Oleksandr Usyk. The Ukrainian is planning a trip to Brooklyn on October 15 to watch Wilder fight Helenius, and has previously said that if Fury fights Anthony Joshua, he will offer a shot at his belts to the American.
