After slipping the Anthony Joshua fight from his hands, for the meantime at least, Deontay Wilder’s plans for his next bouts aren’t in place yet.
A match against Dillian Whyte is appealing, sure. The long-existing problem is that the two camps have failed to set the fight for a lot of times now — and Wilder is turning even colder to Whyte’s promoter Eddie Hearn for this.
Who Does Wilder Deserve to Fight Next?
The highest profile — and most awaited — opponent Wilder can have is no one but Tyson Fury, the former heavyweight champion of the world. The 29-year-old fighter is now easing his back to the limelight after missing out on the sport for two years.
However, Fury has just returned this month and has an upcoming bout in Northern Ireland in August. This leads us to the fact that their parties would take sometime before they can sign into a bout.
Who’s next on the line now? No one but the obvious choice, Dominic Breazeale. He is a high ranking boxing star with the WBC and people are also looking forward to it after their recent ‘beef.’
Hostility has developed between the pair after a clash in a hotel where Breazeale’s past was apparently in contempt. The now-existing mutual rage is exciting people of the fight.
“You would think that he would be more under control when he’s gotten somebody hurt, but he’s almost like a street fighter in there. You get a lot of people making fun of the heavyweight champion of the world,” said Breazeale on an interview with the Premier Boxing Champions.
“You also have individuals who don’t even know who he is. That’s because of the fact that his art is not as honed-in as it should be if that makes sense.”
