From Chris Williams: Top Rank promoter Bob Arum says he’s put offers out to a number of High heavyweights for lineal champion Tyson Fury’s Second fight in May or June in the United States, Also He Also ’so Awaiting for the contract. Arum isn’t giving any clues about who he sent the contracts , however Oscar Rivas and Bryant Jennings are two likely opponents he’so looking at. Manuel Charr might be another.
Arum says he’s interested in piecing with a rematch between Fury (27-0-1, 1 9 KOs) and WBC heavyweight champion Deontay ‘Bronze Bomber’ Wilder, and he believes that it’ll be simple to set the fight together once they sit down to hammer out the deal. Arum is still talking about Fury and Wilder’s next struggles being interim games to install a rematch between these. But with Fury currently with ESPN, it’s now unclear if another fight with Wilder is doable.
Fury may be stuck to the opposite side of the fence out of Wilder unless something changes. Wilder spoke recently he’so in discussions with DAZN, and he’s got a lot of other choices. When he suggests with DAZN, it’ll be difficult for a rematch with Fury to take place. Wilder believes that Fury intentionally went along to ESPN to ensure he can prevent another fight with him due to how poorly he had been hurt in the 12th round in their fight past December.
“Tyson Fury’s definitely going to fight in either May or June at the United States against a top competition,” Arum said to Fighthub. “We have offers out, and we’re waiting for a contract. Wilder apparently is going to do an interim fight also on the 18th, I believe, and then hopefully we can fit them up because we strove to sign Wilder, and then give him a tuneup fight, and then have him fight Tyson Fury, however they decided to do the tuneup fight themselves, and that’s their prerogative. But we’re obviously open and then we ’ll sit down with him to accomplish a game between Fury and Wilder sometime the end of this calendar year,” Arum mentioned.
All these are the probable choices for Fury’s next struggle in May or June on ESPN:
— Oscar Rivas
— Bryant Jennings
Out of the three, Charr or Jennings (24-3, 14 KOs) are the ones that Top Rank sent contract supplies to. Jennings, 3 4, is coming out of a 12th round knockout loss to Rivas. It’d appear bad in the opinion of the knowledgeable Boxing fans if Jennings is selected as Fury’s next competitor, however, the Boxing fans likely would not have any idea about Bryant’s recent decrease. Top Rank could probably get away with having Fury fight the newly beaten Jennings with no carrying too much abuse from the fans. However, this ’s not the kind of opponent that Fury needs whether he wants to be a significant name in the United States. If Top Rank wants Fury to become a celebrity in America, matching him against the newly knocked out Jennings won’t even reach the objective. Even if Jennings had beaten Rivas, he would still be considered a poor option for Fury to fight. Fury needs to be combating men like Wilder and Anthony Joshua if he wants to be star in the united states. Fighting Jennings, who’s little more than the level journeyman, will not do much, especially if Fury dances around the ring for 1 2 boring rounds such as we watched him against Wilder, Francesco Pianeta and Wladimir Klitschko.
It’d take Arum’s best interest never to own Fury take part in too many interim fights, due to his fighting style is equally hard on the eyes. He might turn off what few hardcore Boxing fans that are considering seeing him and Wilder get it done . Arum signed a heavyweight with a spoiling mode of fighting, and now he ’s not someone that is planning to please the average Boxing fan from the U.S.. Once they watch Boxingthey would like to be amused, and not have to watch some large runaround the ring for 12 rounds, scraping at the air, doing and holding lots of posing.
Wilder vs. Fury II re-match is now up in the air now that Tyson has signed on with Top Rank Boxing, and is fighting on ESPN. Up until recently, both fighters were in discussions for a rematch on May 18, however, Fury subsequently decided to sign with Top Rank, and now it’s upward in the air whether there will be a second fight. Although Arum is talking about about interim struggles and such, however there’SA higher probability that really the only option for Fury is that a fight with IBF/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua rather than rematch with Wilder. This ’S-A fantastic money fight for Fury, but one that he’ll likely lose.
The way that Arum is talking, it doesn’t even seem just like you ’s going to be a rematch between Wilder and Fury happening soon. But heyit took two decades to get its Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao fight to take place. Maybe it’ll be that well until the Boxing fans see Fury and Wilder proceed at it . The problem isthe interest from the fans in visiting those guys fight again is minimal as it is. If years fly by and both guys lose quite a few days earlier then, it’ll be moot in seeing the 2 aging heavyweight fight one another when they’r e nearing their 40s. Their fight past December was a boring one. That wasn’t Wilder’s error. He had been running around the ring trying not to get struck, and it wasn’t even great entertainment.
