David Haye believes Tyson Fury will switch his focus to Anthony Joshua after outclassing Deontay Wilder and claiming the WBC heavyweight title.
The Gypsy King comprehensively defeated his American opponent who was sent crashing to the floor on three occasions before his corner threw in the towel in the seventh round.
Wilder has the option to trigger a third fight but former cruiserweight world champion Haye believes the Bronze Bomber will have no interest in a trilogy given the comprehensive nature of his defeat in Las Vegas.
Instead, Haye believes all roads lead to a unification match between Fury and Joshua which has the capacity to be the biggest fight in British boxing history.
He said: ‘I am very sure the clause for a third fight won’t be exercised. That won’t be realised 100% because what chance does Wilder have what more can he do next time?
‘Deontay Wilder does not want any more of that work he doesn’t want that type of action he was outgunned in every department. What confidence can he take from this? Nothing at all.
‘I think it will be the undisputed, undisputed (Joshua next). There’s only one fight to be made and it’s a fight that everybody will have to see whether you are a boxing fan or not.
‘It has never happened before. All of the belts (are up for grabs) it will be the biggest fight in boxing history.’
Haye also praised Fury for backing up his pre-fight claims by delivering a knockout performance, taking the fight to his opponent and taking his reputation to another level.
‘He’s proved so many people wrong including myself,’ Haye admitted. ‘I really favoured Deontay Wilder heavily going into this fight.
‘I’m eating my words. I’ve witnessed a British boxing great. I knew he was brilliant but I didn’t know he could do that, taking it to the biggest heavyweight puncher ever.
‘Walking out and beating him up, making his corner throw in the towel. Amazing stuff.
‘Maybe that’s why they didn’t care there were three american judges, he forced them to quit.
He’s put himself so far up the ladder just with that one performance. I did not know Tyson could do half of what he did here tonight.’
