What happens next?

Fury had hoped to face Anthony Joshua if he was to beat Wilder but Joshua's loss to Oleksandr Usyk last month has thrown those plans up in the air.

The WBC has paved the way for the winner to arrange a heavyweight unification bout but with Usyk set to face a rematch with Joshua, Fury or Wilder will likely face the WBC interim champion in their next fight.

Dillian Whyte currently holds the interim belt but must beat Otto Wallin at the end of the month to preserve that status.
