This might not be the golden technology of heavyweight boxing we imagined it might be, but it’s quite bloody attention-grabbing right now.
The thought of three flawless heavyweights — Fury, Joshua, and Wilder — was pleasurable whilst it lasted, but it turns out, it’s quite challenging to keep unscathed in opposition to the most risky men in the environment.
So, what’s up coming?

Let us start out with the significant doggy of the division: Fury. He might only have a person of the belts, but there is no denying who sits on the heavyweight throne.
Proper now, the up coming step appears to be very clear, with the winner of the Dillian Whyte-Otto Wallin fight to come to be the necessary challenger for Fury, if he just cannot agree a unification bout with Usyk in 30 days. A unification bout is basically off the cards, in the quick potential, with Joshua triggering his rematch clause.
The usually means when WBC interim champion Whyte and Wallin do struggle at the close of the thirty day period, we’ll be watching a fight that will possible determine Fury’s up coming opponent.
And whilst Whyte is not a identify on the degree of Joshua or Wilder, that all-English affair would make for an outstanding spectacle in the British isles. If Wallin have been to gain, we’d see a rematch amongst Fury and the Swede, who gave the Brit a significant scare in 2019 immediately after a unpleasant reduce virtually derailed every thing.
While neither Whyte nor Wallin depict the form of examination Wilder posed during the trilogy, Fury needs title defences to carry on including to his legacy.
His gain over Wilder on Sunday was the 1st title defence of his vocation. And whilst what he’s performed in the ring has found his identify thrown about in the all-time dialogue, Fury needs to listen to ‘AND Continue to!’ a number of extra instances before he can make a authentic assert.
On the other side of the division, Usyk and Joshua will do struggle again, in early spring in the British isles, as the former cruiserweight king appears to consolidate his belts and place away the Brit.
Joshua got it all completely wrong in opposition to Usyk in their 1st go-close to. But he just cannot hope a repeat of the Andy Ruiz rematch. Usyk is a respectable champion, who has now performed it in two divisions, and will train just as challenging for the sequel. The winner of that fight, which will potentially line up with Fury’s up coming examination, could lastly set the stage for a unification bout.
For Wilder, he’ll possible be remaining to wait for the loser of the Joshua-Usyk rematch, or possibly a match-up with Andy Ruiz Jr. Irrespective of coming out as the loser in the Fury trilogy, Wilder in opposition to Joshua, or any other top heavyweight would still get the boxing environment salivating.
It’s not all best, but the heavyweight boxing photograph is at the very least very clear for the 1st time in a whilst.
