Deontay Wilder believes there is a chance to fight is rival Tyson Fury for the fourth time as he claims boxing is a business and not a sport.

American boxer Deontay Wilder hopes to challenge British boxer Tyson Fury for the fourth time after he suffer a knock out the last time.

Wilder and Fury clashed earlier this year but the American fell to his feet despite flooring Fury twice in the match.

Speaking to the media recently, Wilder claims boxing is not a  sport but a business as he insists he is a big thing in the boxing business.

“I think that there’s definitely a chance of a fourth fight again,” Wilder told Skysport about fighting Fury again. “Boxing is a business. Many people call it a sport but it’s not a sport.

“The heavyweight division is very small. I’m still a big fish in the business, especially here in America. As long as we’re all in the same division and all still currently fighting, why not? It only can lead to that. With all that being said, it’s definitely a possibility.”

A title shot could however come up sooner. Oleksandr Usyk, who beat Joshua twice to win and retain the WBO, WBA and IBF belts, has floated the possibility of fighting Wilder himself.

“I heard about the Usyk situation and he’s going to be there. I hold Usyk to be a man of his word,” Wilder said.

“If Usyk’s saying he wants to give me an opportunity for the titles then that’s what I’m holding his word to. I always tell people that I don’t look past fighters but I do look through them, there’s nothing wrong with that, being confident in yourself and looking ahead once this chapter is closed.

“I’ve got to handle business at the end of the day. Without handling business then nothing else is moving forward. I’m taking it one fight at a time. I’m taking it all in one day at a time. Once I’ve accomplished and finished what I have to do with Robert then I’ll move on and I’ll be looking forward to the next challenge, whether it’s Usyk or whether it’s anybody else.”
