Tyson Fury Wants “At Least Three Fights” Next Year

12/01/2021 - By James Slater - Comments

Who will Tyson Fury fight next, when will he fight next and where will his next fight be? Bob Arum has outlined some of Fury’s plans for next year and the promoter says both Fury and himself hope for “at least three fights” next year. Arum spoke with Talk Sport and he said Dillian Whyte is the most “logical” next opponent for the reigning WBC heavyweight king.

33 year old Fury has recently said that the only two fights he is interested in are fights with Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua. Fury might get both fights next year – we fans sure hope so – but it could be Whyte first, in either February or March.

“I think Dillian Whyte should be the next fight for Tyson Fury,” Arum said. “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, getting in the ring at the end of February or March and doing at least three fights in 2022. Hopefully that is how it will roll out, Fury is ready to fight anybody. I really believe that he is the pre-eminent heavyweight in the world, there is nobody out there that he would be reluctant to fight.”

While a Fury-Whyte fight is an interesting proposition, and while a Fury vs. AJ fight would still be massive despite Joshua having lost his belts to Usyk, the big one we all want to see is Fury vs. Usyk (if Usyk beats Joshua in their planned rematch). This fight would be a real clash of styles and personalities. Plenty of people feel Fury would/will be too big for Usyk, while others believe the skilled southpaw from Ukraine would/will have a great game-plan and may be able to outbox Fury. It’s a truly fascinating fight.

It will be good if Fury, 31-0-1(22) does string together an active 2022 comprising of three fights or more. The last time Fury had three fights in one year was back in 2018, when Fury beat Sefer Seferi in his comeback fight and then defeated Francesco Pianeta and boxed a draw with Deontay Wilder. Fury has never had three world title fights in the same year. Hopefully this will change in 2022.

Fury Vs. Whyte, Vs. Usyk, Vs. Joshua. How great would that be!

  1. Any European fighter could shoot Deontay Wilder, standing there with a smoking gun and Maricio Suliaman would not open an investigation.
    Deontay Wilder is the best heavyweight champion that ever lived without question. You have to cheat Deontay Wilder to beat Deontay Wilder.

  2. In America we call that ,” talkin trash,” chickens who the sport of boxing would be better off without. Anyone who puts metal objects in gloves, removes padding in general cheating, breaking the Queensbury rules of boxing.

  3. As usual Bob arum is full of twisted misdirectional verbage.
    1. ” I’d like to see fury fight Anthony Joshua in the UK.” All along knowing fury can’t ever fight in the UK because he was caught cheating so many times his boxing license has been suspended permanently indefinitely in the UK by the British boxing board of control.
    2. ” He’ll fight anybody, there’s no one he would be reluctant to fight.” All along knowing that fury has built a pattern of avoiding the best fighters. Luis Ortiz never lost a fighting ten years except to Deontay Wilder. Can you believe Anthony Joshua, Dillian Whyte, fury never fought Luis Ortiz? Never have and never will.

  4. The WBC has not received any paperwork for a non title defense. So fury’s team has 60 days to sign ,promote, and complete the first fight if they intend to be honoring their word.
    As usual empty words from the fury camp, they’re not intending to fight 3 times in a year, and if there’s any fight , it will be against weak opposition like Canelo does.
    While contrasting the 10 title defenses in 5 years all against top ten ranked heavyweights provides ample evidence of fury’s non-descript incompetencia.
    No more exemptions and advantages, vacate the belt. Strip Tyson of the WBC belt fine and imprison him for using eggweight loaded gloves during an attempted murder.

  5. The fraudulent interloping foreign intruder who loaded gloves for the Deontay Wilder fights wants to,” fight three times in the next year.” Who gives a damn?
    1. We all know this baldheaded potbellied guys not the WBC champion
    2. The legacy of lying and cheating tactics again and again indicate that there will be few if any title defenses in the next year.
    3. While Deontay Wilder, the Canastonia New York international boxing Hall of famer defended the WBC belt 10 times in 5 years.

  6. Boxing fans all over the world are tired of Canelo and fury and Anthony Joshua avoiding the best opponents with the approval and subsidizing of the WBC and other sanctioning Body’s.

  7. All of you UK boxing fans are aware that fury fights opponents with padding in their gloves while fury doesn’t have any padding in his gloves. The gloves flop around because he has metal eggweights in his left glove.
    The British boxing board of control has suspended permanently indefinitely suspended fury’s boxing license in the UK because he was caught cheating so many times.
    Deontay Wilder is the people’s champion. So grow up and stop pretending Deontay Wilder was defeated, no, he was openly cheated again and again and again.

  8. No one will fight Luis Ortiz. Not Anthony Joshua, Dillian Whyte and definitely not fury.

  9. The floppy gloves flopping around all over the place flipping and flopping flippity floppity flipping around with the eggweight loaded glove having phoney baloney belt holder is afraid of fighting even once with padded gloves. He is not fighting ever.
    Deontay Wilder defended his title every five months for five years.
    Deontay Wilder is the best heavyweight champion that ever lived without question, you have to cheat Deontay Wilder to beat Deontay Wilder.

    • And the crooked referee’s spiked water holding neck wrenching tripping rabbit punching and eggweight loaded gloves padding repositioning advantage floppy gloves flopping around all over the place camera’s rolling bribed judges and such and the glossing over and sweeping under the carpet is repulsively corrupt.
