Wilder eyes unification bout with Fury

Tyson Fury laughed off the possibility of facing Deontay Wilder, but the American said: "I want that fight to happen as soon as possible."

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has outlined his ambition to unify the division by beating Tyson Fury, the new IBF, WBA and WBO champion.

Fury instantly became the biggest draw in heavyweight boxing when he inflicted a first loss in 11 years on Wladimir Klitschko in Dusseldorf on Saturday with a shock points triumph.

The undefeated Briton has already laughed off the possibility of facing Wilder, who is also yet to lose and has won 34 of his 35 fights by knockout.

However, Wilder told BBC Radio Five live: "I want that fight to happen as soon as possible.

"I've got to fight someone in January and after that fight I would love to have a unification bout - and guess what, I wouldn't mind coming to the UK for that one.

"No matter where it might be, I want to be the undisputed champion of the world."

Fury had earlier said: "Wladimir Klitschko was the number one in the division, probably the pound-for-pound king, whatever that means. So why would I be bothered about a novice like Wilder. Let's laugh at his name, shall we?"
