While Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder bout for WBC light heavyweight title has been the talk of the town since last Saturday night, the outcome of the fight had been overshadowed by the curiosity about the future endeavors of the two fighters.
As the boxing’s undefeated shook the ring with their unprecedented artistry to end up in a controversial draw, the same question was on everyone’s mind. What’s next for the boxing’s unbeaten potential?
Many sport pundits have predicted about a rematch and though both pugilists are open to the consideration, they have also called out for heavyweight unified king Anthony Joshua.
29-year-old Briton currently hold three out of four major titles, IBF, WBO and WBA. Though he had a chance to execute his prowess on the canvas against Fury, AJ erased the possibility of taking on Wilder previously.
After Saturday’s brawl, Joshua was quick to share a tweet with his followers in response to a callout from the undefeated boxers that he was ready to rumble against any of the two fighters.
What took this fool so long? Like we ain’t been interested?!! ?Anyway well done Fury! they wanted to get you because they assumed you was finished!! I’ll give you a fair one when your ready! Either one of you! https://t.co/RlytsIrnud

Joshua boasts a clean resume of 22 fights, 21 of which come via KO. His most celebrated victory has been against former champ Wladimir Klitschko. AJ’s last ring appearance was in September this year against Alexander Povetkin that ended in a seventh-round KO victory.
While talking to SkySports, Shelly Finkel, Wilder’s co-manager, stated that the team was looking forward to a fight with Briton’s prodigy, and something could come up the horizon, as long as AJ’s manager Eddie Hearn remained “professional” without disclosing the details to media.
According to Eddie, Wilder is the rightful candidate for AJ’s next fight. Joshua is all set to make his next ring appearance in Wembley Stadium in London, England on April 13.
The expected fight would act as a unification brawl for heavyweight category between unbeaten champions. According to Eddie Hearn, all bets are off for the unpredictable bout.
Owing to the controversial scorecard, boxing fans and critics want to see a quick rematch for Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder. But it seems that Wilder’s number one priority right now is a volcanic performance against Briton’s undefeated boxer.
