Tyson Fury Signs With Top Rank/ESPN
In the midst of negotiations for a rematch with Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury has thrown a wrench into the works by signing a multi-year deal with Top Rank.
Fury, currently promoted by Frank Warren, has signed a co-promotion deal with the Bob Arum owned company, moving all of his future fights to ESPN.
“If I didn’t want to fight him, I wouldn’t have taken it in the first place,” Fury told BT Sport of a rematch of his 2018 draw with WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder. “As far as I’m concerned, the fight is more make-able now than ever, because we have the biggest boys in the game behind us.
“I’m only a fighter, I can only fight who they put in front of me. I want the biggest fights – the Joshua’s, the Wilder’s of the world and everybody else out there too. If you’re watching Deontay, I’m coming for you baby.”
Speaking with Sky Sports, Wilder’s co-manager Shelly Finkel said he still hopes to reach an agreement over a rematch with Fury.
