Top Rank is trying to turn Tyson Fury into a star in the U.S, but they’re not going to be able to do that by putting him in showcase fights against opposition with inflated rankings. Schwarz looked like a fighter that didn’t deserve the #2 ranking he’d been given by the WBO.
“Where was he ranked? #15 by the organizations?” said Fury to IFL TV. “Tom Schwarz was ranked #2 by the WBO. Why do people keep saying he was 65 in the world or 53 of 125? I have no interest in what Eddie Hearn says. His golden goose (Anthony Joshua) was just splattered by a fat man. So hes got to try and discredit me to try and look great. He got Joshua beat by Ruiz, because he looked at the man’s body and didn’t study boxing,” said Fury.

Tyson Fury says he’s interested in facing American Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller in October if Deontay Wilder doesn’t fight him in a rematch.
“Whatever Bob Arum says, but I’m fighting in October in New York City,” said Fury. “I think Deontay Wilder is fighting at the end of October. Yeah, I’m open to fighting Jarrell Miller, no problem. Jarrell Miller is an option. He’s highly rated. He’s 23-0. He’s the highest rated available opponent. He’s popular because of the scandal. I’d be open to negotiating with Big Baby, for sure. Jarrell Miller is someone I would consider. They want an American. I can’t think of another American. I’d say Jarrell Miller is more popular than Adam Kownacki. Who else is there?” said Fury.
