WBC President Hopes To Discuss Boxing Future With Tyson Fury In Mexico
World Boxing Council President Mauricio Sulaiman is hopeful of bringing Tyson Fury (32-1, 23 KOs) to Mexico so he can hold meetings with him directly about his future.
There has been a lot of speculation upon the British boxer’s career as of late.
The 33-year-old was in action in April, as he beat Dillian Whyte in the sixth round in front of 94,000 fans at the Wembley Stadium. After the win, Fury put his boxing future in doubt.
However, in recent interviews, he has said the option is always there to fight again if the offer is right.
“I will reach out to him this week to see what we can do – assuming he wants to visit Mexico so I’m going to talk to him (to) see maybe he can visit our country and we can show him our hospitality and just show him the love that Mexican fans have for him,” Sulaiman told Planet Sport.
“Well, he did his mandatory title defense. A champion has six months to defend the title, one year to defend the mandatory defense. What I have seen is mostly media and hype of speculations of what he will do or will not do,” Sulaiman said.
“He has expressed continuously that he’s retired, but when we spoke, we agreed that he will take his time and I’m going to talk to him and his promoters in the near future – just to get started to see if he confirms he’s retired,”
If Fury plans to carry on his career, which many experts feel that he will, there can be several big money moves on the table.
However, his biggest event could to fight the winner between the rematch of Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua.
