"Black-box" - outlines the capabalities of a tester (i.e. provide input
and check output).
"Fuzzing"  - outlines an idea for reaching the goal of testing. There
are different goals:  security, acceptance, functional, etc.

So sum the things up, these are different dimensions in testing:
capabilities, the goal of testing and the technique used to reach the goal.
For example, you can imagine white-box security testing using in-memmory
fuzzing with dynamic taint analysis.

Hope that helps.
