TYSON FURY cemented his place as the No1 heavyweight of his generation after destroying Deontay Wilder overnight.

The Gypsy King retained his WBC world title after an eleventh-round stoppage of of the Bronze Bomber.

It came after a staggering bout at the T-Mobile, Las Vegas, with FIVE knockdowns in one of the fights of the century.

And now the unbeaten Brit has the pick of the division as he looks to secure himself as a heavyweight legend.

The 33-year-old doesn’t have many fights left – but SunSport has had at look at five possible opponents for him next.

DILLIAN WHYTE

If Whyte comes through his tough test against Otto Wallin on 30 October, he will be mandatory to fight Fury.

The Brixton man has had topsy-turvy run to get his shot at the Gypsy King, following a loss to Alexander Povetkin.

He went on to avenge that defeat, and if he can beat the Swede at the o2 Arena, a shot at the WBC strap is in order.

OLEKSANDR USYK

Following his exceptional win over Anthony Joshua, Usyk has all the remaining belts in the heavyweight division.

If the Ukrainian can persuade Joshua to side step his rematch clause, a unification clash could be in order.

Those don’t come around very often, especially at their weight, so the fans would be in for a huge treat if they got it on.

ANTHONY JOSHUA

The one fight that everyone had been waiting for, which would have made upwards of £500m.

But the Watford man lost to Usyk, all-but putting an end to the chances of them facing off.

Or did they? It’s still the clash most Brits want to see, would sell out Wembley in minutes and be the talk the UK for months.

JOE JOYCE

Joyce showed he is a force in the division after destroying up-and-coming banger Daniel Dubois last year.

He went on to beat Carlos Takam and is the mandatory for Usyk’s WBO belt – but he is tied up with a Joshua rematch.

At 36-years-old, the former Olympian hasn’t got long left, so a shot at Fury would make for an interesting night.

DAVIE HAYE

A little bit left-field, especially with the 40-year-old’s injury record and years away from the top.

But the former WBA heavyweight champion recently called Fury out for an all-British clash.

And with the huge gates sales and PPV buys it would generate – as both are HUGE names – whose to say these two won’t finally face off?
