Tyson Fury's Promoter Makes It Clear What Fight They Want Next

Tyson Fury's Promoter Makes It Clear What Fight They Want Next
By Maurice Brosnan Updated

Fresh from Tyson Fury's blockbuster bout against Deontaty Wilder, promoter Frank Warren has made it clear that they are keen for a big British showdown between Fury and unified world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

The WBC world heavyweight title in Las Angeles last weekend saw Wilder and Fury draw on a split-decision. In the aftermath of that fight, Wilder took to Instagram and said: "the fans are the real winner and I can't wait for Wilder Fury 2."

However, Fury's promoter has urged his longterm rival, Eddie Hearn, to make a fight between the two top British heavyweights.

"If you did a poll now with the fans for Anthony Joshua’s next fight… what do you think would be top of the pops there? I’m quite sure [they want] to see the top Brit fighting the top Brit," he told the Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT.

And there’s all this negotiations now about who gets what percentage – it’s really simple this fight – it’s 50/50 down the middle. What? Tyson Fury doesn’t bring anything to the party? Do you not think if he fought Deontay Wilder over here, 80,000 people wouldn’t turn up to see the rematch? Course they would.

He [Joshua] needs to go and tell the people who are looking after his affairs and order them to do it because that’s what happened with Tyson and I. Tyson and I spoke about fighting Wilder and he said, ‘Go and do it, make it happen.’ That’s what I did.

Hearns and Warren have clashed in the past, with the two promoters recently squabbling over scheduling clashes. However, the allure of one of the biggest ever British fights may be enough to ensure they set their differences aside and make a deal.
