Former world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (27-0-1) is about to debut under the ESPN flag this summer.
That’s what the rumors from the US are stating. “The Gypsy King” was scheduled to take for a second time WBC champ Deontay Wilder this upcoming May, but the negotiations between the two camps have failed because of Fury’s transfer to Top Rank.
Still, the rematch between the Brit and the American is there to be made, but that won’t happen soon.
Meanwhile, “The Bronze Bomber” will have his mandatory fight with his fellow countryman Dominic Breazeale on May 18 and Fury won’t be sitting on the sideline either.
The 30-year-old Brit is rumored to get back in the ring on 8th of June, with the location to be announced. The top name that is being thrown in the mix is Colombia’s Oscar Rivas (26-0-0) who’s also part of the Top Rank family.

The last time boxing fans saw Rivas in action was January 18 when he TKO’d the American Bryant Jennings in the 12th round. The Colombian holds the IBF International Heavyweight Title, the NABF Heavyweight Title and the
WBO NABO Heavyweight Title.

If a fight with Rivas is arranged, Fury will have 20 cm height and reach advantage over the stocky Rivas.
