Former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has listed his Top 5 opponents he wants to face in case he doesn’t get a third fight against Tyson Fury.
The Brit demolished Wilder in their February rematch when he TKO’d him in the seventh round. That was Wilder’s first pro loss and the American has pretty much lost his mind since then, blaming everything and everyone for his loss but himself.
The pair were scheduled to meet for a third fight in the summer of 2020, but the clash got postponed several times due to the coronavirus. Finally, last month “The Gypsy King” said the contract for the third fight has expired and he won’t be waiting for “The Bronze Bomber”.
Now Wilder is saying that if Fury doesn’t fight him, there are 5 heavyweights he’d like to face.
Dillian Whyte is at the top of the list, which makes no sense after all these years of ducking and not fighting Whyte who was the mandatory challenger for at least two years.
“Dillian Whyte, I want Dillian Whyte and I want Dillian Whyte. The dude is obsessed with me, man.
“It feels like he acting like we went together and then we had a bad break up which we can’t get over.”
‘The Bronze Bomber’ also revealed four other potential opponents who could also step in the ring to face him. Andy Ruiz will be on that list, as far as a hype – Helenius could be one of them – he could come back and get the hype.
“You got Joseph Parker, you’ve got Oleksandr Usyk and I would love to fight him. He called me out at one point in time.
“There’s a lot of guys on the list and when that phone rings, just accept that opportunity.”
The 35-year-old who was trash talker number 1 before he got beaten by Fury has forgotten the name of the other world champion Anthony Joshua. For years that was also a fight that people wanted to see, but now Wilder is admitting he’s not really into facing Joshua.
