Frank Warren Spells Out 2020 Plan For Tyson Fury

Frank Warren Spells Out 2020 Plan For Tyson Fury

This week Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury confirmed their rematch will take place in Las Vegas on February 22.

The British heavyweight fought out a draw with WBC champion Wilder over a year ago and they will meet again at the MGM Grand. However, that is unlikely to be a 'decider' as promoter Frank Warren has confirmed he believes they will fight again in the summer.

Per the Daily Star, Warren said a third fight is a possibility.

"We could get in a cracking 2020. Fury and Wilder will probably fight again in the summer."

Warren did add he wants to see Fury face fellow British heavyweight Anthony Joshua but he did not give a timeframe or specifics.

Fury recently changed trainer from Ben Davison to Sugarhill Steward while former middleweight world champion Andy Lee has also confirmed he will help out with the camp.

For his part, Top Rank promoter Bob Arum told BoxingScene recently that the feud with his longterm rival Al Haymon, who advises Wilder, is over. "There is now peace among promoters.

“I can predict that with no uncertainty that Wilder-Fury 2 will be one of a number of fights Top Rank and PBC will be doing together, some on ESPN, some on FOX and others on PPV. I think that is absolutely the case.”

It means Anthony Joshua, who holds the WBA, WBO and IBF titles, will have to wait for his shot at the WBC belt.
