According to co-promoter Frank Warren, Tyson Fury will fight in the United Kingdom again following his battle with Deontay Wilder
Tyson Fury’s next fight following his battle with Deontay Wilder is expected to take place in the United Kingdom, according to Frank Warren. Since 2018, the WBC heavyweight champion has not fought on American soil. After securing a long-term agreement with Top Rank and ESPN, Fury, 33, has made the United States his boxing home and has competed there four times.
There aren’t any Yanks for him to fight. I believe he will return, which will be a wonderful homecoming, “Warren, a co-promoter, explained.
Fury must first defeat American Wilder, 35, on Saturday in Las Vegas, and the ‘Gypsy King,’ who is the odds-on favourite, will be wary of an upset after watching Anthony Joshua lose to Oleksandr Usyk at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last month.
“We’ll sit down if Tyson wins the fight. There are a few alternatives, “Warren explained. “A major fight with Usyk would take place here. The Joshua bout is still a huge one. Dillian Whyte is a major opponent, assuming he defeats Otto Wallin, which isn’t a given. He’ll be in some major fights.”
For the time being, the Joshua fight appears to have been postponed. After talks to unify the heavyweight titles fell through last summer, Joshua is now charged with recovering the WBA, IBF, and WBO titles he lost to Usyk in their rematch, which is set for February 2022. The loss of a possible blockbuster fight between two domestic rivals is a blow to the British boxing landscape, but Warren believes the fight might still take place, even if he doubts Joshua’s ability to defeat Fury.
“I believe the public will support that battle even if AJ isn’t the champion. Since the fight, AJ has claimed a lot of things, including a lot of rubbish about his eye from ‘doctor’ Hearn.” He said.
