Tyson Fury Set For June 15th Return
From May 18th through June 15th, Deontay Wilder, Anthony Joshua, and Tyson Fury would have stepped into the ring, as Fury is close to a deal for his first fight on ESPN+.
Per a report from Boxing Scene, Fury will headline a card for the digital platform on June 15th from the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada in his first fight since his controversial December 2018 draw against Deontay Wilder for the WBC world heavyweight title.
A rematch is currently in limbo with Fury signing with ESPN in February, and Wilder announcing his next steps at a press conference on Tuesday in Brooklyn to hype his next defense against Dominic Breazeale.
Canadian Oscar Rivas was rumored to be Fury’s opponent, but per a report from Journal de Montreal, Rivas will more likely appear on the broadcast’s undercard.
