DEONTAY WILDER is poised to fight Oleksandr Usyk and Andy Ruiz Jr. next… as long as the heavyweight pair hasn’t been deterred.
Wilder brutally finished off Robert Helenius in New York after just a right hand and three minutes after his boxing return.
Usyk, 35, had previously called the American and warned he could crash the massive comeback fight.
But the unified champion was a no-show as Wilder wondered who on earth would want to fight him after leaving Helenius cold.
He said, “Who’s next? I’ve heard rumors about Usyk and he’s not even in the building, is he?
“You know most of the time when guys say they want me and come to one of my shows and see a devastating knockout they turn me around the corner, I’ve had many.
“I’m up for anything, whether it’s Andy Ruiz or Usyk or whoever. Here we go.
“Deontay Wilder is back. The heavyweight excitement is back. There is no heavyweight without Deontay Wilder.”
Wilder, 36, returned for the first time since Tyson Fury, 34, KO’d him in their epic trilogy fight last year.
And they could be in line for a sensational FOURTH chapter in their rivalry.

It comes after Wilder defeated Helenius, 38, in a WBC eliminator which sees him face off against Ruiz, 33, for the mandatory challenger spot.
The two are both signed to Al Haymon’s stable Premier Boxing Champions, which makes negotiations for the showdown a lot easier.
Wilder was present for Ruiz’s win over old rival Luis Ortiz, 43, in September, where the duo agreed to take it on.
