Recently, when speaking to the Daily Mail, Sulaiman said, “Yes, we will sanction Fury v Wilder on request. We are on board with Tyson and Anthony Joshua for the undisputed title but a fight between our distinguished current and former heavyweight champions is also an outstanding event.”

In their first contest, Fury pulled off a thriller by going full 12-round against the scary Deontay Wilder. A huge chunk of the boxing fans expected ‘The Gypsy King’ to get knocked out cold by the Alabama native. But to everyone’s surprise, Fury staggered Wilder in this 12-round war and gave him a rugged outing.

Moving further, the pair locked horns last year in an exuberant rematch. However, in this fight, it was all about Tyson Fury and the performance he put. The Brit shook the world from the core by putting Wilder to the canvas multiple times in the fight.

Not only that, but he claimed a thunderous T/KO win in round 7 of the fight, thus establishing his reign as the king of the big men’s division.
