Tyson Fury wants Deontay Wilder next: "Let's get it on"

Undefeated heavyweight contender Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO's) has wasted no time in trying to find his next opponent after David Haye was forced to pull out  of their February 8th bout because of a potential career ending injury. While Fury's team looks for a replacement for a Februaray 8th match up, Fury himself has called on Deontay Wilder (30-0, 30 KO's) to fill Haye's spot.

"You talk the talk, now it's time to walk the walk. Let's get it on!" Fury tweeted directly to Wilder on Twitter. "You and me is the biggest and most exciting fight in world boxing. Let's give the fans a real fight!"

Fury words may not be too far off. Fury stands at a monsterous 6'9 while Wilder stands at 6'7. The knockout percentage between the two stands at a impressive 89%. While most people wouldn't put their chances against the Klitchsko's very high, against each other it would likely be a slugfest between two of the biggest heavyweights in boxing.
