After Deontay Wilder’s KO, Tyson Fury’s promoter reveals plans for the Gypsy King’s next bout.
Frank Warren, Tyson Fury’s promoter, has hinted that the Gypsy King could face Dillian Whyte in his next bout in the United Kingdom.
Frank Warren, Tyson Fury’s promoter, has hinted at the potential of an all-British bout with Dillian Whyte by expressing his desire to bring the Gypsy King back to his homeland in his next fight. Fury hasn’t fought in England since defeating Sefer Seferi at the Manchester Arena in June 2018, and his most recent fight in the country was a victory over Francesco Pianeta in Belfast two months later.
Since then, the Gypsy King has fought three times in the United States, with victories against Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin.
After concluding his Wilder trilogy with an 11th round knockout in Las Vegas on Saturday night, the unbeaten WBC heavyweight champion is now 31-0-1.
In the fourth round, Fury was knocked down twice by Wilder, but he recovered in what was an all-time classic battle at the T-Mobile Arena.
After losing to Oleksandr Usyk, the 33-year-old is now focusing on his next bout, putting a highly-anticipated fight with Anthony Joshua on hold.
Fury might take a sabbatical and fight Usyk later in 2022, but it’s more probable that the Briton would face Whyte first, with WBC challenger Bodysnatcher facing Wallin after that.
If a unification bout with Usyk cannot be arranged, Wilder’s conqueror is expected to be ordered by the WBC to fight the winner right immediately.
And, according to Warren, Fury’s promoter is eager to put on a show in the United Kingdom for what will be his client’s first fight back in his hometown in four years.
Warren stated: “I’d want a homecoming above all else, for the sake of the British fans and everything. Fury is the best heavyweight of his generation and ranks among the best in the world.
“Take a look at his size, chin, and heart to see how he keeps getting up off the floor. That was the best heavyweight match I’ve ever witnessed.
“In any period, for anyone, he would be a standout performance. Tyson can easily sell out any stadium in the United Kingdom. Fans will show up in droves to support him.
“Anything is possible, and we’ll just sit down and see what we can achieve.” Brinkwire News Summary “..
