THERE are countless reasons why Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury should meet again in a WBC heavyweight title fight and only one reason why they shouldn’t.

The reasons why they should have everything to do with the fact they fought to a draw in December, a controversial draw no less, and because they are two of the more engaging boxers in the world right now whose rivalry could end up being one of the great ones.

The single reason why they shouldn’t fight again, however, at least according to Wilder, is because Andy Ruiz Jnr owns three of the four heavyweight titles and a potential unification fight will always trump any other available option.
