Tyson Fury has sent shockwaves through the boxing world with the announcement of an “absolutely monstrous” imminent fight. The Gypsy King has been teasing his fans on Instagram, hinting at a comeback since losing his WBC title to Deontay Wilder in February 2020.
There has been much speculation about who Fury’s next opponent will be, with Oleksandr Usyk and Wilder touted as possible contenders. Negotiations for a unification bout with Usyk have reportedly broken down, but Fury seems eager to get back in the ring with the Ukrainian.
However, Fury and Usyk were unable to agree on a purse split, with the latter demanding that the split be reversed in his favour if he won. Fury, on the other hand, wanted a 50-50 split if he lost the fight. With terms already agreed upon for their showdown, fans were hoping to see the heavyweight titans face off soon.
But Fury has hinted that a different high-quality operator could be his next opponent. After all, in boxing, anything can happen. There has been talk of Saudi Arabia hosting a four-man heavyweight tournament featuring Fury, Usyk, Wilder, and Anthony Joshua. However, there are currently no concrete plans in place for such a tournament.
As boxing enthusiasts eagerly await Fury’s new opponent announcement, one thing is certain: the Gypsy King is back in business. With his signature style and unbeatable resilience, the Mancunian hopes to reclaim his status as the heavyweight champion of the world.
In the meantime, Fury’s fans are eagerly waiting for news of his next bout. Will it be Usyk or Wilder, or will a new contender emerge? Only time will tell, but one thing is for sure – when Tyson Fury steps into the ring, the world takes notice.
