Alexander Krassyuk, promoter for WBO, IBF, IBO, WBA heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk, sees Deontay Wilder as a future opponent for his boxer.

Usyk is back in action on February 17, when he collides with WBC champion Tyson Fury in a high-stakes undisputed showdown.

There is a two-way rematch, but there is no guarantee that a second fight will actually take place.

For his part, Wilder is returning to the ring on December 23 in Saudi Arabia, where he faces former WBO world champion Joseph Parker.

Krassyuk views Parker as a very dangerous opponent for someone like Wilder. 

"It’s not the right time to talk about it. I can tell you Deontay Wilder is in the top 3 heavyweights in the world and of course, a fight with him is something worth doing and worth seeing for me, as a boxing fan. It would be a great fight for sure so let’s see. But from the point of view of Usyk’s career, it depends on how the fight with Tyson goes, the time length of the rematch and the second thing, let’s not forget the fights Wilder and Anthony Joshua have on December 23," Krassyuk told Betway.

"Joseph Parker is a technician and can do severe damage to a guy who is not strong in boxing techniques but has the power in the punch. We have seen many times that it is Wilder’s weakness – he is a puncher not a boxer. For Joshua, this is also a big challenge as Otto Wallin is one of the most underrated fighters in the division. He is an awkward southpaw and Joshua is coming on the back of two losses and his comeback fights didn’t go too well. They are both great fights."
