Tyson Fury Confirmed To Announce New Fight Next Week, But Not Against Oleksandr Usyk

Tyson Fury, the current WBC heavyweight champion, has once again changed his mind about retiring and will fight again, but not against Oleksandr Usyk.

Tyson Fury, the WBC heavyweight champion, has said he would reveal information about a fight next week, but it won’t be a unification matchup with Oleksandr Usyk.

Fury recently stated that he was willing to put off retirement plans once more in order to set up an exciting winner-takes-all fight against Usyk, despite having insisted that he was hanging up his gloves after brutally knocking out Dillian Whyte in a major British heavyweight match at Wembley in April.

The Ukrainian defeated Anthony Joshua last month to maintain his WBO, WBA, and IBF belts plus to win the Ring Magazine belt that had been left vacant by Tyson Fury’s most recent retirement announcement.

That raised the possibility that Fury and Usyk might agree to a highly anticipated unification match later this year. Since then, Usyk has stated that he won’t fight again until 2023, but that hasn’t prevented Fury from developing his own strategies.

‘Gypsy King’ Returns To WWE

On Saturday night, the “Gypsy King” attended the Clash at the Castle event in Cardiff, marking his return to the WWE. Fury reiterated that he will be providing more information about his short-term objectives in the coming days during a news conference that he had following the performance.

He said: “Usyk was calling me out after his last fight with [Anthony] Joshua, I’ve replied and said let’s do the fight this year, wherever they want to do it.”

“I’ve been waiting for offers from countries to come forward, and all of a sudden Usyk has stated he doesn’t want to fight any more, he wants to fight next year, not this year. So I’m not going to wait around for anybody, I’m announcing a fight next week.”

Fury wrecked havoc during the WWE’s first stadium event in the United Kingdom in more than 30 years only hours before releasing the most recent bombshell regarding his future.

Fury entered the evening’s main event between Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre, who were vying for the WWE Undisputed Universal Championship, after being photographed at ringside.

Austin Theory made an effort to enter the ring and disrupt the fight, but was defeated by a vicious blow from Fury. The WBC champion then proceeded to sing along with McIntyre in the ring after the Scotsman had lost to Reigns, and he then revealed his future plans in the post-fight press conference.
