Tyson Fury refuses to fight in UK amid Anthony Joshua rematch discussions, Deontay Wilder tease
Boxing star Tyson Fury is insistent on finishing out his career in Las Vegas.
The “Gypsy King” told IFL TV the U.S. has better markets for someone of his caliber as compared to, as he put it, the “small hall show” scenes in the UK.
Fury said he hopes to be in Vegas, though he would accept another large venue:
“It’s got to be in the capital of entertainment in the world,” Tyson Fury said, via Jack Rathborn of the Independent. My home city is Vegas, I’ve had my last three fights there.
“My last four fights have been California, Staples Center, MGM Grand Garden Arena, T-Mobile Arena, MGM, they’ve all been over there. So I intend to stay there and end my career over there.”
It remains to be seen who the WBC champion will fight next.
Fury’s TKO win over Deontay Wilder appeared to set up an all-British mega-fight with WBO, WBA, and IBF champion Anthony Joshua. However, Fury acknowledged there is a possibility the Joshua fight would not get done, saying a trilogy with Wilder is certainly in the cards:
“Don’t write Wilder off out of the equation, he could be fighting me next, who knows? I could have a third trilogy yet,” Tyson Fury said, via Rathborn.
“Like I said, there’s a lot of stuff going on behind the scenes. Wilder might be next.”
Regardless of whether its a third fight with the “Bronze Bomber” or a massive British bout with AJ, Fury plainly stated his next bout will not be in the UK.
