Tyson Fury Plans To Stay At Top Rank Long-Term
It wasn’t that long ago when Tyson Fury was unsure of what would become of his fight future. At the time before the Deontay Wilder rematch in February, the WBC and lineal heavyweight champion had three fights left on his current deal with Top Rank and believed that would be it for him. Now, Fury is looking to make more moments with the promotion.
On an Instagram Live session, Fury (30-0-1) stated he is ready and willing to re-sign with Bob Arum’s team.
“I’m coming to the end of my contract with Top Rank,” Fury said, via Boxing Scene. “I have two more fights left with those guys. I want to renew it. I don’t want to just walk away after two more fights. I’m 31-years-old. Like [boxing manager and advisor] Billy Keane said, the man who helped with this deal with ESPN and Top Rank, ‘you better get out the dumpster truck and reverse it back into Tyson Fury’s bank account, because that’s what he’s going to need.'”
After coming back from suspensions and self-exile, a clean Tyson Fury drew with Deontay Wilder back in 2018. Following the bout, talks of a rematch came to a halt when Fury signed with Top Rank. He then fought twice for them before facing Wilder in a rematch. Fury dominated Wilder, knocking him down twice while forcing him to run around the ring. Wilder’s corner ended up throwing in the towel in the seventh round.
Fury and Wilder are now scheduled for another rematch. If he can win the trilogy bout, Fury would most likely face Anthony Joshua. By beating Wilder and Joshua, Fury would cement himself as one of the best heavyweights of all time. It would also help his goal of fighting until he is 40. Fury is hoping the money he makes from now until then would bring him past everyone in the boxing world.
“I want to get that big, major fight deal. I want to break all of the records, for a British fighter to go overseas and get the biggest signing record in history,” Fury went on to say. “I know that with MTK Global, Top Rank and Frank Warren, and all of the guys who help in between, I know we can make that happen. I know that we can break history with the biggest fight contract in the history of boxing — bigger than Floyd Mayweather, bigger than Canelo Alvarez, bigger than Mike Tyson, bigger than everybody. I think it’s very possible, and I always aim high with my achievements. That’s my next aim.
“After I wipe out the two dossers in [Deontay] Wilder and [Anthony] Joshua, then the world is my oyster. I want to see that big contract come from ESPN, or whoever is out there, battling to get The Gypsy King on their station.”
