WBC heavyweight champion of the world Tyson Fury will be defending his belt this upcoming December against fellow countryman Dereck Chisora.
The pair will collide for a third time, with Fury being victorious in the first two fights. “The Gypsy King” and “WAR” are fighting on December 3 in London. But the big question is what happens next, if Fury manages to get another W?
The unified heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk admitted two weeks ago that his team is currently negotiating a undisputed fight, but if Usyk is obligated to defend the IBF title against Filip Hrgovic, a fight for all four belts will once again go down in the sewer.
It seems though, Fury has a back up plan if a unification fight with Usyk doesn’t take place. Former world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder and Andy Ruiz are set to fight for the number 1 challenger spot in 2023 and whoever emerge victorious will have the right to go one on one with the champ.
If Wilder defeats Ruiz, that’d mean a fourth fight between Fury and him. Something nobody really wants to see. But Fury himself is OK with such a fight, but it has to be done under his terms – in the UK.
“Deontay Wilder is now fighting Andy Ruiz Jr for a final eliminator to fight me. Now (a fourth Wilder fight) would be amazing here at Wembley again, wouldn’t it? I’ve been over there (to the United States) three times now. If he wants the fourth fight, he’s got to come here,” Fury told BT Sport.
