If 2021 works out well for the boxing fans, WBC  champion Tyson Fury can fight unified titleholder Anthony Joshua to cement one of the biggest heavyweights clashes of all time. While the matchup is being billed as a contest between two equally skilled heavyweights, Fury seems to enjoy the ‘favorite’ spot.

Tyson Fury and his options in 2021

Anthony Joshua is not the only lucrative fight available for Fury, as Deontay Wilder is still relevant with a possible trilogy clash. Following a draw in the first fight, Fury beat Wilder in the rematch. Hence, the trilogy can settle things once and for all.

Deontay Wilder has demanded the trilogy fight after remaining silent for a long time. However, ‘The Gypsy King’ has said he will not grant this to ‘The Bronze Bomber’.
