LAST week Deontay Wilder, the WBC heavyweight champion, was fantasising about unifying the division against the winner of the December rematch between Andy Ruiz and Anthony Joshua and even suggested Tyson Fury, the man with whom he has a score to settle, might be willing to accept step-aside money to make the dream come true.

Fury, though, has told Wilder to think again.

Still smarting from their draw in December, Fury has insisted no amount of money would get him to withdraw from their proposed February rematch and remains convinced Wilder has no interest in sharing the ring with him again.
