Deontay Wilder can compete for the WBC heavyweight title if Fury is absent

Deontay Wilder’s rumored return could take on more significance following the recent news of Tyson Fury.

Last Friday, the day he turned 34order birthday, ‘King Gypsy’ announced his retirement from boxing. The news comes four months after he left the sport after beating Dillian Whyte but earlier this month Fury revealed he will be back for a third fight with Derek Chisora.

Among those wishing the WBC champion a happy retirement is Mauricio Sulaiman. The President of the World Boxing Council wrote on Twitter:

“We fully support his decision, it is anyone’s dream to retire undefeated and become a WBC champion. @WBCBoxing will be preparing a special farewell event soon. “

And then the news came 24 hours later Fury vacated his beloved RING magazine belt now added to the championship pool on offer this Saturday when Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua meet for the second time.

But what is the prestigious green and gold WBC title? Last weekend reports that the regulator has given Fury until August 26 to confirm his retirement in writing. By that date either Oleksandr Usyk will still hold three of the four world titles or Anthony Joshua will exact his revenge.
