Reigning WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury expressed his intention to fight in December against anyone after a 10-month layoff.
Fury last fought Deontay Wilder resulting to the spectacular knockout victory to the Gypsy King. Right after the bout, both boxers told that they will face for the third time, a decision that both parties have agreed on. However, Wilder needed longer recovery period and due to the coronavirus, their trilogy was put to uncertainty.
And as the WBC champ, Fury insisted that he can’t be resting for too long as he is one of the most attracting boxing opponent right now.
“He’s at his best physically and mentally when he’s busy as a boxer and it’s my responsibility to help keep him in the great shape he is now on both fronts,” said Fury’s promoter Frank Warren.
