Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury Wants To Box Savannah Marshall
While the boxing community wonders if Tyson Fury intends to take on Joe Joyce after he potentially beats Dillian Whyte, the WBC heavyweight champion seems to have a different plan.
“I’m probably looking at someone like Savannah Marshall to fight in a cross-gender heavyweight championship match-up. That is more interesting to me,” Fury responded when iFL TV asked if he will box Joyce.
The Gypsy King went on to explain that he was not kidding.
“She’s a big girl and a super-middleweight I think, so I’d come down to like 17 stone from 20 and she could come up from like 12 stone or something and do a cross-gender fight… I’m being serious,” he said.
“I really do rate Savannah as a fighter, I think she’s an unbelievable fighter and I’d be really interested in making the fight, to be honest.”
Marshall’s nine of 11 wins have come via knockouts.
Both Marshall and Fury have been undefeated in their pro careers. But this seems like a desire Fury will not be able to see in reality.
The Gypsy King is expected to fight either Oleksandr Usyk or Anthony Joshua next year, but he insisted that Marshall is in his plans in case he does not get to share the ring with either one of them.
