Is Tyson Fury Returning For An Exhibition Match?

According to Tyson Fury, an exhibition fight between Fury and Hafthor Bjornsson has been in discussion.

The fight would reportedly take place this November in London.

Although Fury retired after his mandatory title defense against Dillian Whyte back in April, defeating Whyte in a sixth-round KO. He hopes to continue competing in various exhibition bouts.

“It’d be great to get in there in front of 70,000 fans and show him what boxing is all about,” Fury told The Telegraph. “Make him miss and knock him out.”

Back in March, Bjornsson beat Eddie Hall twice by unanimous decision. The exhibition bout gave him bragging rights, having won the “Heaviest Boxing Match in History.”

The former World’s Strongest Man and The Mountain in the television series “Game of Thrones” met Fury in person last December.

A fight that many want to see would be Fury going head-to-head with on the winner of the Anthony Joshua rematch with Oleksandr Usyk, but that may not happen.

Fury has claimed to have retired but has not given away his WBC heavyweight title. Many belts will be on the line August 20, including the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO belts.

After beating Joshua in London last year, Usyk won the titles that Fury once held.

If Fury were to fight the winner of Usyk vs. Joshua, the undisputed heavyweight champion would be crowned.
