Deontay Wilder: I could fight Tyson Fury once he overcomes his fears
By Michael Collins: Former 2008 heavyweight Olympic bronze medalist for the United States Deontay Wilder (24-0, 24 KO’s) see a fight between him and undefeated heavyweight contender Tyson Fury (19-0, 14 KO’s) as a possibility in the near future once the 24-year-old Fury stops being afraid to face him. Wilder has been calling out Fury for the past few weeks but has largely ignored by the 6’9″ Fury. That’s not stopping Wilder from continuing to talk to try and get him in the ring.
When asked if a fight between him and Fury was a possibility, Wilder told boxingopinion1.blogspot.com “He could definitely be a potential opponent for me. I’m a type of fighter that gives fighters nightmares, just the thought of potentially fighting me. So once those fears have been overcome [by Fury] and when that happens there will be a fight.”
I hope Wilder doesn’t hold his breath waiting for Fury to suddenly show interest in fighting him, because it appears that Fury doesn’t really want the fight. Fury has been fighting guys like Martin Rogan, Vinny Maddalone, Neven Pajkic and Nicolai Firtha as of late. A fight against Wilder would obviously fit in well amongst those fighters, but Fury seems to not want the fight. Fury is hoping to get former WBA World heavyweight champion Ruslan Chagaev in the ring this November if the fight can be put together. Chagaev, #7 WBA, has a high ranking by the World Boxing Association and it will in theory help Fury get better.
However, the fight isn’t really needed for Fury to get a shot at a world title against one of the Klitschko brothers because they’re willing to fight him now without him facing Chagaev. It’s unclear what Fury will get in beating the 5’11″ Chagaev given that he’s not anywhere near as big as the Klitschkos, and he’s not someone that will prepare Fury to fight against one of them.
Chagaev would be a good opponent for Fury if he were to fight the 6’2″ WBA heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin, because he’s build in a similar manner as Chagaev. But to use Chagaev to get ready for the Klitschkos doesn’t seem to make sense. Fury would be better off fighting Deontay Wilder instead because he hits hard the klitschkos and he’s huge at 6’7″.
