Lou DiBella, Deontay Wilder’s promoted
has said the American is entertaining the
possibility of a WBC heavyweight title
defence against Tony Bellew.


Bellew called out the American boxer after
beating David Haye in 11 rounds of his
heavyweight debut on Saturday at The
O2.
And even though Wilder has been ordered
to defend his belt against Bermane
Stiverne, DiBella sees a future fight with
Bellew.

“We’re not adverse to considering Tony
Bellew,” DiBella exclusively told Sky
Sports. “We congratulate Bellew. I’m a
big fan of Tony’s. It’s not something we
would write off.

“We respect him and it would certainly be
something we would be interested in.”

Wilder is also interested in unifying the
division by taking on Joseph Parker.

“A Joseph Parker fight would be the most
desirable fight for Deontay next anyway,
but you have to look at other
alternatives.

“A fight with Deontay and Tony would
certainly be of interest. I just like Tony
Bellew. He beat a guy who is a major
player. Haye was a major player in the
division and Tony beat him.

“Does he deserve it? As much as any
other contender would. He’s had a great
win against a very highly thought of
David Haye.

“He’s also a guy that has got himself
some attention. Being in that film doesn’t
hurt him. He’s gone out there and
become someone that is well known and
he just had a great victory in the ring,
where he showed a lot of heart.

“We’ve got nothing but respect for Tony
Bellew.”
