Wilder bites back at Chisora: You are third in line after vacant belt and Fury!

Knockout specialist Deontay Wilder has told Dereck Chisora to get in line after ‘Del Boy’ issued a plea to the American via an open letter through promoter Frank Warren.

The 28 year-old, who has stopped 30 from 30 opponents, outlined some of his future plans in his public response to Chisora and rates the Briton as third choice behind an instant world title fight and a high-profile clash with Tyon Fury.

“Here’s how its going, Vitali is retiring no doubt (so) I maybe fighting for the vacant WBC (title),” said Wilder.

“If not, then (I want Tyson) Fury, (but) if not him definitely you, (so) I accept.”

Wilder then went on: “No BS I’m very serious Mr Chisora. In the end of this maze with the belt and Fury if it’s not you then I don’t want to fight and your titles will be put on the line just so you know (okay) thanks.”

Chisora, 29, is pencilled in for a February return to the Copper Box after two successful bouts there previously, but won’t be facing David Price after the Liverpudlian decided to give up his British and Commonwealth titles.

That leaves Chisora with no big names domestically after Peter Fury told WBN that Tyson will be out until at least March, although James Toney has given the European title holder one foreign option on the back of his recent UK jaunt.
