Deontay Wilder wanted to have a fight with Anthony Joshua. However, the British fighter elected to go elsewhere with his next fight.

After Tyson Fury defeated Francesco Pianeta on Saturday in Windsor Park in Belfast, England, Wilder announced his next fight will be with Fury. The venue and date is expected to be announced next week.

However, Fury hinted that the fight will be in Las Vegas, Nevada.

With the win over Pianeta, Fury improved to 27-0 in his career. In his 27 wins, nineteen of them have come via knockout.

Fury has fought twice since June after taking a long leave of absence from the sport following his win over Wladimir Klitschko. Besides defeating Pianeta, he also defeated Sefer Seferi on June 9th at the Manchester Arena.

Wilder, who is currently suspended by the New York State Athletic Commission indefinitely, brings a 40-0 record into the fight. He has 39 career knockouts.

His last two fights have been at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. He knocked out Luis Ortiz in March 2018, who suffered his first loss at the hands of Wilder.

In addition, Wilder has also knocked out Bermane Stiverne and Gerald Washington in his last three bouts. Stiverne took Wilder to the distance on January 1st, 2015 at the MGM Grand for the World Boxing Council’s World Heavyweight Championship.
