Tyson Fury hilariously reacts to confirmation he could fight Deontay Wilder for a FOURTH time after Anthony Joshua bout
TYSON FURY has reacted with laughter after discovering he could potentially have to face Deontay Wilder for a fourth time.
The Gyspy King has faced the Bronze Bomber three times already and after drawing the first, he went on to record two convincing victories over the American.
After beating Wilder for the second time in October 2021, he then successfully defended his WBC heavyweight title in April by knocking out Dillian Whyte.
The 34-year-old has performed several retirement U-turns since, but he has now confirmed that he will fight again after failing to relinquish his championship.
He wants to unify the division by facing Oleksandr Usyk, but with the Ukrainian not ready to fight until next year, he has instead offered Anthony Joshua a mouthwatering title shot in what would be a bumper Battle of Britain.
Meanwhile, WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman has announced that Andy Ruiz Jr’s victory over Luis Ortiz was a semi-final eliminator to become mandatory challenger to Fury.
And the Mexican, who famously dethroned Joshua to become world champ in 2019, will face the winner of Wilder’s comeback showdown against Robert Helenius on October 15.
Fury has previously declared how he feels that Wilder is the second best heavyweight on the planet after himself.
And he clearly feels that the 36-year-old will knock out all before him and set-up a potential fourth fight.
Reacting to the announcement, alongside a laughing emoji, he wrote: “Looks like ill [sic] be foghting [sic] wilder for the fourth time.”

Meanwhile, Wilder is ready to fight Usyk if Fury prices himself out of a unification bout.
He said: “If he overprices himself, they know where to find me. £500million is definitely pricing himself out.
“I’m here, Deontay Wilder’s back. I’m here to make the division back strong and exciting again.
“I’m here for all the smoke. But we’ll see what happens. Boxing is a business. It’s strictly a business and you’ve gotta treat it accordingly.
“We’ll see how the business has to be handled for that fight to happen.”
