Tyson Fury to face winner of Usyk vs A.j

Tyson Fury’s promoter, Bob Arum is “confident” that the British heavyweight will “answer the bell” and return to fight the winner of Oleksandr Usyk’s rematch with Anthony Joshua.

“Once this fight is over we’re going to put together a total unification match between the winner and Tyson Fury.” Stated Bob on live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Fury had earlier reaffirmed his intention to retire this month, but his US promoter Bob Arum is hopeful the Gypsy King can be persuaded back to the sport by a lucrative clash against Usyk or Fury.

“Absolutely – it’s really the only fight that makes sense for Tyson Fury,” Arum told Sky Sports. “I’ve discussed this with my co-promoter of Fury, Frank Warren, and once this fight is over we’re going to put together a total unification match between the winner and Tyson Fury.

“Now, if Usyk wins the fight, which I expect, that will be quite easy to do because we’re very close to the Usyk people as they’re the same people who manage Vasyl Lomachenko who fights for us.

Fury has previously been adamant that April’s victory over Dillian Whyte at Wembley would be his last, although Arum is confident the 34-year-old will be “up for the challenge” and return to face the winner.
