I?m not sure!

There are mutterings in the Boxing media that a clash could be on the cards, in the near future, between the man who looks to be destined for greatness and the man who visited these shores, twice, to defeat David Price.

Apparently, Tony Thompson is prepared to try and stop the Deontay Wilder juggernaut and wants to fight him.

Their records suggest it would be a good contest with Wilder currently having a record of 29-0 (all by way of knockout) and Thompson having a record of 38-4 (26 by way of knockout)

But the path to a match being made isn?t quite that smooth.

Whilst Thompson may be eager to engage Wilder, he?s pointed out that Wilder?s manager isn?t that keen, remarking,

?Wilder may be saying ?yes,? but his manager is saying, ?Hell no!? Tyson Fury, Alexander Povetkin, Tomasz Adamek, it don?t matter. I?m here.?

Which contradicts what Wilder has previously said about taking on Thompson with the unbeaten fighter inferring he?d offered to take on Thompson several times but the elder statesman of the two had declined it several times.

Is it all a game of poker to up the ante or is it a match that will never happen?
