Fresh from his devastating title win against Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury is taking aim at three-belt champion Anthony Joshua – but could the fight take place in Saudi Arabia?
Did you get up and watch the Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder fight on Sunday morning? If so, you saw a truly epic fight as Fury outclassed big-hitter Wilder in every round. The Gypsy King is well and truly back!
And he celebrated in true Tyson Fury style, with a rendition of American Pie in front of 16,000 people at the MGM Arena.
The next step? Deontay Wilder has a clause in his contract whereby he can ask for a re-match within 30 days.
But if that doesn’t go ahead, then it’s all systems go for a huge, HUGE all-UK battle with Anthony Joshua to unify all heavyweight belts for the first time.
But, where will that fight take place?
Title fight in Saudi?
As soon as the fight finished, Tyson referred to his likely next fight against Antony Joshua.
Fury said: “I’ve got another old fella across the pond who might want a little tickle. Then that is it then. It’s completed. Done.”
Our sources tell us that the Saudi Arabian power brokers who made the Joshua vs Andy Ruiz Jr match happen recently in Saudi were ring-side.
It’s fair to say, they’d probably pay the most money for the fight. And with Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn calling any title fight ‘the biggest in the history of the sport,’ money could well do the talking.
Plus, with politics, contracts and TV channels also in the mix, Saudi – and a huge payday – might be the easiest way to bring everyone together.
So, best get saving up for those tickets for AJ vs Tyson Fury in Saudi Arabia for the fight of the Millenium!
Although that said, we’re almost as excited about what he’s going to wear getting into the stadium!
