Tyson Fury’s team opens the door to the biggest tournament in boxing history with Anthony Joshua

The team at TYSON FURY has opened the door to a sensational four-man tournament featuring the biggest stars in the heavyweight division.

TalkSPORT’s outspoken sports pundit Simon Jordan claimed Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder, Oleksandr Usyk and Fury would be involved in a series of fights.

It would pit AJ against Wilder with Fury against Usyk, both in Saudi Arabia in December, which would allow the winners to meet in a final.

George Warren, the son of Frank, Fury’s UK promoter, hasn’t ruled out the stunning idea but admitted talks have not yet materialized.

He told iFL TV: “It would be amazing, wouldn’t it? But that’s speculation at the moment.

“As far as I’m concerned, we haven’t had a formal offer or communication that needs to be done.

“What we always say, we get a lot of attention and interest in Tyson, not just from UK bodies but from around the world.

“When people get in touch, the usual way we deal with it is to just say, ‘Great, make an offer, put it in writing. Send us some date options, tell us what the plan is and what you intend to do, the finances involved and we can go through it and address it as a team.

“Tyson is the decision maker but obviously if an opportunity arises we are happy to look at it.

Warren added, “At this point we haven’t had an offer for anything.


“But if someone comes in, it’s private, it’s discussed, and then we move on.”

Joshua, 33, beat Jermaine Franklin, 29, over 12 rounds on points in their rematch in early April.

Wilder, 37, has been out since October when he knocked out Robert Helenius, 39, in round one of his comeback fight.

Fury, 34, is now without an opponent after his deal to unify all four belts with Usyk, 36, collapsed.

Terms were scrapped amid a dispute over finances for a potential rematch, leaving both in the lurch.

Tyson is the decision maker but of course if there is an opportunity we are happy to look at it.

Usyk has since been called up for a mandatory WBA title defense against Daniel Dubois, 25, and talks are ongoing.

And Fury will have to seal a rematch in the summer, which promoter Bob Arum revealed could be against Andy Ruiz Jr, 33.

And Warren added: “Andy Ruiz stopped Anthony Joshua, is a former world champion.

“I don’t think the performance in the rematch when he was fighting in Saudi Arabia was Andy Ruiz’s best performance, but he’s had solid wins since then.

“I’m not focused on who Tyson’s opponent is at the moment. The first step is to talk to Tyson, which we will do next week.

“We’ll find out what he wants to do. Does he want to be active? Does he want to fight? Does he want to fight a British stadium fight?

“If so, then we’ll reassess who’s available and look at all the different opponents and anyone who wants to fight Tyson.

“Once he’s made that decision, get in touch with us and then we’ll look at the possibilities and options and go through them.”
