Deontay Wilder is confident that he will secure a fight with fellow undefeated heavyweight Tyson Fury as he looks to prove that he belongs in the mix for a world title showdown.
The American heavyweight sensation secured a 30th consecutive knockout victory at the weekend as he overcame Nicolai Firtha thanks to a devastating right hand in the fourth round.
Despite Wilder boasting an incredible professional record, there are still questions marks over whether he has the skills to challenge for world titles.
The 28-year-old is yet to share the ring with a heavyweight of note and has not been past four rounds as he continues to dismantle every fighter put in front of him.
Having made plenty of fans in England when he stopped Audley Harrison in the first round of their contest in Sheffield back in April, it seems Wilder now wants to strengthen his credentials by facing Fury.
"We are the two most exciting young heavyweights in the world. My fight with Fury is inevitable and I will have no problem travelling to England to make it happen. I love it over there," said Wilder.
Fury has amassed 21 wins and 15 KOs since turning professional back in 2008 and is scheduled to face his biggest ever test when he faces former heavyweight champion David Haye in Manchester on 8 February.
Wilder had been helping Haye prepare for his original bout with Fury which was delayed after the Londoner picked up a nasty cut in the final week of sparring.
The fight has now be rescheduled and while Haye is the heavy favourite to inflict a first loss on Fury, it seems Wilder is still keen to secure a bout with the outspoken fighter in what would be an exciting contest between two of the most talked about heavyweights in the world.
