Boxing news: Tyson Fury could fight Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder on ONE condition | Boxing | Sport


That’s the opinion of MTK Global’s Professional Development Coordinator, Jamie Conlan.

Fury will take on German heavyweight Tom Schwartz on June 15 in Las Vegas, his first fight since his controversial draw with Deontay Wilder for the latter’s WBC world title.

The former unified heavyweight champion is still on the comeback trail after two years away from the sport, and his next fight will be the first in his ESPN/Top Rank deal.

Wilder is set to take on Dominic Breazeale on Saturday in a mandatory defence of his WBC strap, after he failed to negotiate terms for an immediate rematch with Fury.

It had originally been hoped that the American could unify the division against WBA, WBO and IBF champion Joshua, but the Brit is set to take on Andy Ruiz on June 1 in New York.

And Conlan believes that if the big three in the division are to face each other, their managers and promoters will have to sit down together and make a deal.

The former commonwealth flyweight champion also told iFL TV that he believes the fight will have to happen, hinting that fans will not put up with any other fights.

“There has to be a sit-down between Bob [Arum], DAZN, Fury’s People and Wilder’s people,” Conlan said.

“There is going to be a time where it has to happen.

“The quality and depth is not there in the heavyweight division, we have three guys who stand alone at the top and then Dillian Whyte etc below, Joe Joyce below that.

“There just isn’t much room for these kinds of fights [Fury vs Schwartz] because the big guys are going to have to fight each other.

“The only way for that to happen is for the likes of Bob Arum and Eddie Hearn to sit down with each other and please their beggars.”

Fury seemed less optimistic about the chances of a fight being made, as he told Behind the Gloves that he wanted to call a truce with Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn.

“I understand that he’s a promoter and he has to try and run me down to make his fights look better, but come on, it is what it is,” said Fury.

“I’m sick of all the bullsh*t games. I say we call a truce. The next negative word you say about me I’m gonna slap all your teeth in for you.

“When you get people like Eddie Hearn saying negative stuff about me, I look at it and I think, ‘You know what Eddie? You’ve never had a fight in your life.’

“How can you call me and say ‘you’re sh*t’ or whatever because you can’t fight and if you could, you’d be a world champion and I wouldn’t.”
