Deontay Wilder has already got his next three fights mapped out in his head, and they’re not going to be quiet ones.
The WBC heavyweight champion has two big rematches planned, plus a potential undisputed title bout to round off 2020.

He’s already announced that his upcoming contest at the end of this year will be the second fight with Luis Ortiz.
When asked for his three-fight schedule, Wilder told ThaBoxingVoice: “After Ortiz, it’d be Fury. Then after Fury, s***, it’d be Ruiz.
“I’m gonna call it into existence, I think Ruiz gonna beat [Anthony] Joshua. And when he do, it’ll be me and him.
“I’m looking for Ortiz, Fury, Ruiz and that’s how I’m willing to go – back to back to back.”

Providing he comes through the Ortiz rematch, it’s already well known that Wilder will get the Fury fight he desires.
It’s also been confirmed that a two-way rematch clause exists in this contract to guarantee a trilogy contest, so long as the loser decides to activate it.
However, Wilder doesn’t expect this to scupper his plans and continued: “Yeah it’s a rematch clause in there.
“But he ain’t gonna exercise that after I whoop his ass the second time and knock him out again. We ain’t have to worry about that.
“He don’t even wanna fight now, that’s why he ran from the rematch.”
