Former WBC champion, Wilder, has been very vocal about his intention to make it a trilogy with Fury, after he suffered a TKO at the hands of the “Gypsy King” last February. The defeat was the first that the Bronze Bomber had tasted in his career and the convincing nature of the loss shocked many, even though Fury has beat Wilder the year prior in the eyes of almost everybody.
This has led to fans wondering if a third fight between Fury and Wilder is the right move for both men and whether there is as much fan interest in this rematch, as opposed to the desire to see Fury take on Joshua. The fight that makes sense for all involved would be between Wilder and the man who brought Anthony Joshua the only defeat of his career, Andy Ruiz.
“The Destroyer” too would have been hoping for a trilogy of fights with Joshua, however, the American was clearly outboxed in the last fight between the two, so once again, the fan interest in another fight would not be as high. A fight between Wilder and Ruiz would offer both men the opportunity to elevate themselves back into title fight contention, with Wilder, in particular, expressing his desire to fight AJ in the future.
