Deontay Wilder is focused on his next fight against Tyson Fury, but he likes to see beyond and in his future it is conserved the title of the CMB that will expose before the British and fighting against the winner of the expected fight between Andy Ruiz and Anthony Joshua, which will be at stake the belts of the AMB, FIB and OMB.
The idea that Wilder has in mind is put into play all the belts so that a single boxer can win them and proclaim himself as the absolute champion of the heavyweight category.
“I want the unification, I want a heavyweight champion. The heavyweight division is too small, so there should be only one champion“, Said the boxer in an interview for Wold Boxing News.
However, even if your idea seems sensible to boxing fans, we know that it's very difficult for these fights to be organized, because the different promoters and companies that handle each boxer do not always have the same interests.
Also, before thinking about that there are several things that ‘The Bronze Bomber’ should take into account: the first is that must beat Fury in February, and the second is that If Joshua defeats Ruiz, he would be forced to fight Alexander Povetkin or Oleksandr Usyk to defend the WBO belt. In the event that it surpasses this rival, then Wilder could talk about unifying the 4 titles.
Anyway, the option looks complicated. It seems that everything will stay in the words of a Wilder who took advantage of the reflectors that pointed to the fight next Saturday between Joshua and Ruiz in the so-called Dune Clash in Saudi Arabia. We'll see what happens.
