Deontay Wilder Ready to Step Up, Challenges Oleksandr Usyk in Fury's Potential Absence"

In a surprising turn of events, Deontay Wilder has thrown down the gauntlet, declaring his readiness to face Oleksandr Usyk if Tyson Fury withdraws from their much-anticipated clash once again. The bout, initially set for February 17, faced a setback when Fury suffered a sparring injury, pushing the showdown to May 18.

Wilder, undeterred by his recent defeat to Joseph Parker, is back in training and exuding confidence. The former WBC champion expressed his eagerness, stating, “I’m ready, I’m always ready for whoever, no matter what.” Despite acknowledging a period of disinterest in the sport, Wilder assured fans that he has rediscovered his passion and dedication.

Fury’s previous withdrawal led to rescheduling, and this time, organizers have committed to proceeding on May 18, even in the event of another pull-out. If Usyk finds himself without an opponent, the plan is for Fury to face Anthony Joshua on the same date. However, if Fury backs out again, Usyk may opt for his IBF mandatory challenger Filip Hrgovic.

Wilder’s unexpected entry into the mix adds an intriguing layer to the unfolding heavyweight drama. The Alabama native emphasized his rejuvenated commitment to boxing, declaring, “I’m still that motherf***er, don’t get it twisted.”

As the May 18 date looms, the heavyweight landscape remains unpredictable, with Wilder injecting an element of uncertainty into the narrative.
