The much-awaited trilogy fight between ‘The Gypsy King’ and Deontay Wilder has now finally come to a close. Tyson Fury retained his WBC heavyweight world title by knocking Wilder out cold in round 11. This heavyweight trilogy will indubitably go down in the history books as one of the greatest of all time.

This trilogy fight had been in the works for quite a few months and both fighters were hard at work throughout. After a few difficult months for the Fury family and with this big win in the bag, the Englishman can finally take a breather and spend time with those close to him.

Hardly an hour or two after his win, Paris Fury shared a video of a shirtless Tyson Fury jumping to loud music along with a big crowd at a club. Fans were shocked and surprised to see the WBC champ that active even after 11 grueling rounds with Deontay Wilder.

The champ definitely deserves this time off, for he showcased a memorable performance against ‘The Bronze Bomber’ on Saturday night.

What’s next for Tyson Fury?

With a third win over Deontay Wilder, the boxing community has labeled Tyson Fury as the greatest heavyweight of this generation. But is he really?

It is important to note that he has secured back-to-back wins including the recent title defense against a single fighter. However, there are new fishes in the heavyweight ocean- Oleksandr Usyk, Dillian Whyte, Otto Walin, Anthony Joshua, etc.

With his recent win over Anthony Joshua, Oleksandr Usyk is now the unified king of the division. Fans now want Fury to directly jump into the undisputed clash against the Ukrainian.

However, it does not seem like that is currently an option on the table. According to Eddie Hearn, Joshua and Usyk are already set for a rematch in spring next year.

Since Joshua has now triggered the rematch clause with Usyk, there might only be one fight in sight for Tyson Fury- the winner of Whyte vs Walin.

Prior to Wilder vs Fury 3, the WBC had stated the winner (Fury) would have an option to opt for an undisputed clash with Usyk within 30 days.

The other option forces Fury to face a mandatory challenger; this mandatory opponent will come from the winner of the upcoming December bout between Dillian Whyte and Otto Walin.
