Tyson Fury opens door to completing Wilder trilogy

Tyson Fury is open to the idea of completing his trilogy with rival Deontay Wilder in the future.

Back in December 2018, Fury produced a moment that is cemented in boxing folklore forever, producing a scintillating performance against Wilder in Los Angeles.

While the official result was a draw, Fury was largely seen as desperately unlucky to not have snatched the win, though it was his jaw-dropping ability to rise from the canvas that took the headlines.

Then, in February 2020, ‘The Gypsy King’ tore through Wilder with a ruthless showing that ended in a seventh round TKO.

Wilder cycled through some infamous excuses in an attempt to explain away what had happened but in the end, Fury’s astounding comeback story was completed in spectacular fashion.

In a recent interview, Tyson has said he isn’t going to rule out a possible third fight against the American.

“You can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” Fury said. “Malik Scott’s a b****, and so is Deontay Wilder.

“I’ll smack them around like little p******.”

“I’m open to all fights,” Fury said. “All the heavyweights out there. The champions and the non-champions alike. 

“There’s heavyweight boxing, and there’s the Gypsy King boxing. “I’m light-years ahead of all these m**********.”

While he may be open to all fights, there’s only one that is on the mind of boxing fans around the world – the Anthony Joshua superfight.

It’s been years in the making and while there may have been hiccups along the way, it certainly feels as if we’re getting closer and closer to seeing it become a reality.

Wilder, on the other hand, has been tipped to fight Andy Ruiz. It may not be the chance for revenge he seeks but if he wins, he could easily set up a showdown against the winner of Fury vs Joshua.
