Deontay Wilder still has not decided plans to return to the ring. In his last fight, almost a year ago, he suffering his first defeat to Tyson Fury.
The former WBC heavyweight world champion was owed a trilogy fight by the Brit. Wilder insists the third fight must still take place.
Fury is close to finalising a deal to face Anthony Joshua twice instead. Reports emerged suggesting that the ‘Bronze Bomber’ could face former AJ opponent, Charles Martin.
Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn told IFL TV about these reports: “I really wanna see Wilder back, he’s great for boxing, and so’s Andy Ruiz.
“It’s a good fight, Charles Martin can fight. I know AJ cleaned him out in two rounds but that was a great performance.
“Charles Martin can fight. He was a good fighter then and he’s a good fighter now. Charles Martin might beat Deontay Wilder.”
