Tyson Fury is now the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight champion of the world. He cemented his place in history after unanimously out-pointing Wladimir Klitschko over twelve rounds on Saturday night in Dusseldorf.
As the novelty wears off over the coming days, one question is sure to surface: who do we want to see Tyson Fury fight? Here are five names I would be happy to see our new heavyweight champion face at some point.
Wladimir Klitschko – rematch
Although a rematch clause is in the contract, Wlad and his team have neither confirmed nor denied whether they will invoke it. Dr. Steelhammer is now 39-years-old, and to be quite frank, looked it in the ring on Saturday night. Whether he can reverse the loss is something only he knows. But it would be a great return bout - potentially fought in UK - where it would financially make more sense.
David Haye – the fight that never happened
Here lies an interesting proposal. The Hayemaker has seemingly returned at the perfect time to launch another attack on the WBO, IBF and IBO belts. He must first overcome Mark De Mori in January, but as the Bermondsey man has already operated at the highest level, not many could begrudge him a shot. The fight is made all the more interesting because of the history the duo share. David Haye pulled out of fighting Tyson back in 2013. Their feud could resume however sometime next year. An all-British heavyweight world title clash that could fill out any stadium.
Antony Joshua – too soon?
AJ is ranked highly by all sanctioning bodies, so within the next year he could potentially work his way into a mandatory challenger position. However, my feeling right now is that it’s too soon for Joshua. After another two or three fights, against sterner opposition, he could be on the precipice of a shot. End of 2016? Start of 2017?
Deontay Wilder - unification
Surely the fight everyone now wants to see. The heavyweight division unified. These two carry themselves in a similar manner, possess a similar charisma. Both are brash-talking, loud, entertaining and unbeaten fighters. Imagine the press conferences, the build up, the weigh-in. It’s an exciting proposition, and Deontay Wilder has already acknowledged a possible meet, tweeting yesterday: “I see you @Tyson_Fury.... #ImComingForYou.”
Outside of the rematch with Wladimir, it is unlikely that any of these names will be Tyson’s next opponent. And if the rematch doesn’t go ahead, I would suggest he will make a few voluntary defences before looking at any of the options above. Some great matchups await in the heavyweight division, who would you like to see share the ring?
