Deontay Wilder is hoping for a fourth chapter in his rivalry with Tyson Fury.

Wilder, 38, has faced Fury three times in the ring to date but has yet to register a victory in any of them (1x draw, 2x defeat) but after witnessing his old rival being defeated by Oleksandry Usyk in last Saturday’s gargantuan tussle in Saudi Araba, the ‘Bronze Bomber’ believes that the time is approaching to renew acquaintances with the ‘Gypsy King.’

And furthermore, he says that boxing’s new benefactors might be happy to bankroll it.

“I want to make Tyson Fury pay so bad, so bad,” Wilder told Sportsbook Review. “I don’t think that chapter is over with. I could see a fourth in the making, created by the creators. The Saudis have the source and the power to make it all happen. I want to get it back so bad and reclaim all the gold.

“I’m looking forward to working with the Saudis for a long time, even when I regain the titles. I truly believe that I will be the undisputed champion and hold all those belts.”

For this to become a reality, one suspects that Wilder has no option but to find a route to victory in his June 1 battle with Chinese powerhouse Zhilei Zhang; a bout which also takes place in Saudi Arabia.

Wilder comes into the contest on the back of three defeats in his last four fights — two of those to Fury, but also to Joseph Parker, who scored a resounding, if somewhat surprising, win over Wilder last December.
