Tyson Fury demands a unification fight with Wilder

DAYS after his historic win over Wladimir Klitschko, newly-crowned heavyweight king Tyson Fury has called out Deontay Wilder.

Fury now owns the WBA, WBO and IBF titles while Wilder has the WBC strap. Wilder immediately sent a warning shot to Fury after the Brit’s win in Germany and Fury has today responded, claiming he would ‘destroy’ the unbeaten American.

The fight would create an undisputed heavyweight champion of the world – a mouth-watering prospect.

Wilder has been granted a voluntary defence of his title in January while Fury may well need to fight Klitschko again first, if the Ukrainian decides to utilise his rematch clause.
