Deontay Wilder is hoping to continue his incredible KO streak against Prizefighter contender Jason Gavern this coming Sunday, but ahead of that clash he has further reiterated his desire to face British boxing's most polarising figure Tyson Fury. 

Wilder and Fury have been embroiled in heated verbal exchanges via social networking site, Twitter in recent months, building anticipation for a potentially explosive heavyweight tusslein 2015.

Bombs away, eventually

Fury's last three opponents have withdrawn from scheduled fights attempted to call out American Wilder, only to mistake his username for Liverpool and England footballer, Lucy Bronze.

Fury was originally called out by Wilder after his stunning victory against British Olympic medallist Audley Harrison last year, but nothing came of the shouts.

Wilder has huge potential

However, in a recent interview with Sky Sports America's great heavyweight hope stated his desire to finally put an end to Tyson Fury's campaign further down the line.

Wilder said: "It's been going on for a couple of years, it's been me and him going back and forth, it's been comedy and me and him shooting our mouths off, so the publicity side of this is out there."

"Everyone wants to see this happen. We've already sold it!"

"All that needs to be done is name a date, a time and a location and it will happen, next year...September."

With Fury set to fight Derek Chisora for the second time later this year, it is possible that a date with the Bronze Bomber is next in line.
