Tyson Fury ‘has held secret talks with Deontay Wilder for weeks over a shock fourth bout at Wembley’… as the Gypsy King looks for a backup opponent in case his undisputed title fight with Oleksandr Usyk falls through
- Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk still targeting an April 29 bout but not finalised
- Stunning reports claim that Fury and Wilder have held ‘secret talks for weeks’
- The shock fight would reportedly take place in England at the iconic Wembley
Tyson Fury has reportedly held talks with Deontay Wilder for weeks over having a fourth fight at Wembley if his bout with Oleksandr Usyk fails to happen.
Fury and Usyk are currently negotiating terms for an undisputed heavyweight title fight – which will unify the division for the first time since Lennox Lewis beat Evander Holyfield in 1999.
The pair are still targeting an April 29 bout, also at Wembley, but according to reports, they are still ‘a long way to go’ as they struggle to see eye-to-eye on financials.
And now, according to World Boxing News, Fury is so eager to enter the ring again in April that he has lined up a potential fourth fight with Wilder.
It’s claimed that their representatives have been in talks for weeks over a fight at England’s iconic Wembley on April 29.

Fury and Wilder have met three times already with the Gypsy King most recently triumphing in Las Vegas in 2021
Fury and Wilder have shared some mammoth battles in the past, with their first bout ending in a controversial draw.
However, the Gypsy King won both the rematch and a trilogy fight, both via knockouts in the seventh and 11th rounds respectively. The most recent bout was in October 2021 which took place in Las Vegas.
Wilder has wanted to fight in England for several years but has often been avoided by Anthony Joshua.
At 37-years-old, the American would no doubt love to end the final years of his career by facing Fury on UK soil.
For months an undisputed battle between Fury and Usyks has been lined up but talks have dramatically stalled in recent weeks.
Boxing fans across the world are still eager for a deal to be struck between Fury – the current occupant of the WBC title – and Usyk – the current occupant of the WBA, WBO and IBF belts.
Saudi Arabia had been named as the preferred location for the fight, but ESPN have reported that the undisputed heavyweight title fight will take place at Wembley.
