Tyson Fury “chilling, enjoying life”, says he will fight “who’s available and makes sense later on”

WBC heavyweight champion of the world Tyson Fury, fresh off of his dramatic trilogy against longtime rival Deontay Wilder, is not really keen on focusing on any future opponent and is more interested in spending his days in leisure for the moment before deciding on who he fights up next. The ‘Gypsy King’ will gradually be aiming for the undisputed world championship, but for the moment, he’s less concerned about going for the heavyweight throne.

It doesn’t make sense who I want to fight at this moment: Tyson Fury

Tyson Fury concluded his dramatic trilogy against Deontay Wilder last month, surviving two knockdowns to deliver a knockout to the ‘Bronze Bomber’ in the 11th round, defending his coveted green and gold belt for the first time since winning it in his second outing against Wilder in February 2020.

The 33-year-old, who aims to clinch the undisputed title, wished to square off against the unified WBO, IBF, IBO, WBA world champion Oleksandr Usyk, but the Ukrainian is under contract for his rematch against the former unified titlist, Anthony Joshua.

Without a definite future opponent at the moment, Fury, who was present ringside on Saturday night in Wembley for BOXXER’s event, believes it doesn’t make sense to discuss his next fight right now.

“I’m just chilling, enjoying life, taking one day at a time, and enjoying myself,” said Fury, “I’m not really interested [in discussing what I want], because to be honest, it doesn’t really make much sense who I want to fight at this moment. It’s who’s available and what makes sense later on.” [H/T Boxing Scene]

Even though facing Usyk, or Joshua in case the latter regains his belts in the rematch, is a far cry, speculations are there to see Fury taking on WBC’s interim champion Dillian Whyte, but that move is also riddled with the massive hurdle that Whyte himself is currently engaged in a legal battle with the sanctioning body.

However, Whyte does want to face his compatriot next year.

“He [Tyson Fury] will try to fight Usyk, because Usyk is a much easier fight for him. Fury has been mandated to fight me twice. He asked for the WBC ‘Diamond’ belt to fight me, but ran away when they agreed. He just keeps making excuses,” Whyte said on a possible future fight against Fury, “Hopefully now he’s got no choice. What’s he going to do? Throw the belt in the bin and run away from more money than he got to fight (Deontay) Wilder? He said he was going to fight me after he beat Wilder, then he ran away. Let’s see what he does.” [H/T Boxing Scene]
