AJ retained his IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight titles after beating Kubrat Pulev in December and a fight against Fury was immediately touted.

After defeating Wilder, the Gypsy King became the first British boxer to hold the WBC belt since Lennox Lewis.

A unification fight between the two best British heavyweights has had fans salivating in anticipation.

But Wilder could throw a spanner in the works by demanding a rematch, which would be a third fight between him and Fury, and he is entitled to do so.

The Bronze Bomber immediately triggered the clause, which was included as part of the deal for the match, following his loss to the 32-year-old in February, 2020.

However, coronavirus threw all plans out of the window and made any potential fight impossible for a span of time.

But Wilder still has every intention of taking Fury on once again, as confirmed by his manager Finkel.
