Despite experiencing a defeat by KO/TKO earlier this year, Deontay Wilder remains the No. 1 contender of heavyweight WBC.
In early 2020, Deontay Wilder lost the heavy WBC championship belt to Tyson Fury after 7 completely overwhelmed matches. Then, WBC had to see temporary heavyweight champion Dillian Whyte defeated by Alexander Povetkin in the fifth half. In less than 6 months, the heavy WBC had 2 changes in heavyweight.
However, contrary to Dillian Whyte, who fell to 5th place after the last defeat, Deontay Wilder remains the number one contender. This is good news for fans of heavyweight boxing.
Despite the defeat at the beginning of this year, Deontay Wilder still holds the No. 1 position in the WBC rankings
Because, when Dillian Whyte fails, this means that Tyson Fury is not obliged to defend the title against Dillian Whyte anymore and is likely to rematch soon with Deontay Wilder. The WBC only promised Whyte a title if he won, but promised nothing more to Alexander Povetkin.
According to originally planned, Deontay Wilder will have the opportunity to revenge against Tyson Fury on December 19 this year. This is also said to be a prerequisite match for one of the current 3 heavyweight pillars (Joshua, Fury, Wilder) to stand together.
Even Tyson Fury once frankly vowed to rematch with Deontay Wilder at any cost to prove he was the best. Hopefully, the rematch between the two heavyweight stars will quickly be signed.
Tyson Fury is only interested in the competition of Deontay Wilder
The only thing that mattered to the defending WBC champion was his third rematch with Deontay “Bronze Bomber” Wilder and nothing else.
Many people want “Gypsy King” to face other opponents such as defending champion Anthony Joshua, but Fury wants to settle his grudge with Wilder. It seems that after two games the result of one draw and one win is not enough for Tyson Fury. Fury wanted a third match to end the fight between the two boxers.
