Top Rank promoter Bob Arum believes there is a possibility that the WBC heavyweight champion of the world Tyson Fury might get on the ring three times in 2022.
According to the legendary promoter, Fury’d start next year with a title defense against Dillian Whyte, even though there is nothing official at this point and both parties are not negotiating as of this moment.
“I think Dillian Whyte should be the next fight for Tyson Fury,” Arum said to talksport.
“We’ve got to push ahead and get a date and an opponent for Fury. And it seems to me that it is logical that it should be Dillian Whyte.”
“What I would like to see, and this is what he would like to see, Fury getting in the ring at the end of February or March and doing at least three fights in 2022.
“There that he would be reluctant to fight,” said Arum of Fury.
“First, it has to be ordered, and it probably does once the courts do whatever they do,” said Top Rank vice president Carl Moretti to iFL TV on whether the World Boxing Council will order Fury to face Dillian Whyte.
Depend on what happens in the rematch between unified heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk and Antyhony Joshua, Fury might fight the winner for the undisputed heavyweight crown.
