WBC heavyweight champions Deontay Wilder is keeping his options open and according to the trainer and co-manager Jay Deas, who addressed the situation to WBN, Wilder is free as a bird later in 2020.

“I really don’t know much about Dillian Whyte’s situation or how accurate it is (that he’s been due a shot for 600 days). I know Deontay has always wanted the biggest fights. He’s never ducked anyone,” Deas exclusively told World Boxing News.

“Like everyone knows, now Deontay is getting the biggest fights. Deontay has Luis Ortiz and Tyson Fury in sight. But I know he has no problem in fighting Whyte or anyone else after that. I don’t know the exact timetable on the situation.

“I have to admit that I don’t know a lot about Whyte’s career. But what I do know is that after the Joshua loss he seems to have put together some good wins. Deontay has no problem with that fight.”
