But against who?

With the unbeaten WBC heavyweight now over the injury problems that required the American to have surgery, speculation is mounting as to who the explosive Deontay Wilder will fight in his next fight.

One name being put forward is that of Hughie Fury.

Hughie, the cousin of Tyson, has a record that reads 20-0 with 10 wins coming by way of knockout, however he has been inactive since April.

But, on the social network site Twitter, Hughie has tweeted his desire to get into the ring with Deontay, which reads,

?I?m ready for the big fights. Wilder wants it 25th Feb. I?m happy please make this fight @boxnationtv @MGM_Manchester @HennesseySports.?

Before further adding,

?Wilder or winner of Parker-Ruiz. They?re my next fights. Don?t care what first. They will be hopefully announcing the fight this month.?

Wilder will be a tough test for Hughie, the American has a record that reads 37-0 with 36 wins coming by way of stoppage.

Perhaps a bout against the winner of Parker v Ruiz would be a more feasible option.

We can but wait and see.
