Deontay Wilder could face former Anthony Joshua opponent Charles Martin next with his hopes of Tyson Fury trilogy fight ‘rapidly fading’

Deontay Wilder is reportedly in talks with the camp of former IBF heavyweight champion Charles Martin about a potential comeback.
The ‘Bronze Bomber’ has not fought since February last year when he was dismantled by Tyson Fury in Las Vegas and surrendered his WBC crown.

During his 11-month hiatus from the ring, the 34-year-old has made a string of excuses for the defeat such as his heavy costume, tainted water, loaded gloves and disloyal trainers.
However, the American remains one of the biggest punchers in world boxing and a threat to the division and it seems he could finally be set to return.
According to Sport Illustrated’s Chris Mannix, Wilder’s representatives have reached out to Martin’s camp over a potential fight in the first quarter of 2021.
This is due to ‘rapidly fading hopes’ of a trilogy with Fury as the Brit closes in on a bout with Anthony Joshua to determine who the best heavyweight in the world is by crowning an undisputed champion.

The COVID-19 pandemic drastically altered plans for every sport in the world, yet Fury vs Wilder III never materialised – despite dates for July and October being scheduled.
A location for the mega-fight between Joshua and Fury has reportedly been agreed however, with Bob Arum confirming both fighters would earn close to $100million (£73m) each for the fight.
It leaves Wilder with the unenviable option of facing Martin; a champion who reigned for just 85 days after Joshua unceremoniously knocked him out at the 02 in April 2016.
