For a brief period, boxing fans wanted to see Wilder vs Joshua. However, the matchup didn’t meet fruition. Following Wilder’s scratchy loss to Fury, ‘The Bronze Bomber’ went silent on his boxing career.

Meanwhile, Anthony Joshua earned his shot at Fury by beating Andy Ruiz Jr. and Kubrat Pulev in his last two fights. That said, Deontay Wilder is nowhere in the scenario. Still, Fury connected with Little Giant Boxing and predicted the outcome for the fantasy matchup.

Nevertheless, there’s a catch. Tyson Fury hasn’t been too respectful towards Wilder. Although he placed the former WBC champion over ‘AJ’, Fury still billed himself superior to all the elite champions. ‘The Gypsy King’ has also offered his two cents on a trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder.

Tyson Fury said, “It depends if I give Deontay Wilder his mojo, because I have got it in the pocket. And If I ever decide to give Deontay’s mojo back and his soul.

“He might be able to box again, but until then, I got his a**, his soul, his mojo, and his ba*** all in my pocket. I own him.”

Will Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder 3 happen?

After two gruesome encounters, they were reportedly locked in for a trilogy fight. Fury also claimed to accept it. However, several controversies forced the fight off the table.
