Former heavyweight champion of the world Tyson Fury calls out the WBC champion and recent David Haye conqueror.
It seems opportunities are opening up already for Liverpool’s Tony Bellew after beating David Haye, with the still reigning Ring Magazine heavyweight champion of the world Tyson Fury offering him a chance at the belt.
Likewise, he has done so for American WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder – who recently defeated Gerald Wasington in Alabama to defend his belt.
Fury has made a return to his social media call outs and colorful comments over the past couple of days, and now he’s had this message for the above two boxers:

As per Ring Magazine’s belt rules, their title must be taken off their respective champion who won it inside the ring, not like the process that saw Fury vacate his other world titles last year.
Fury has already given a May 13th date to return to the boxing ring which one would imagine would be against a warm up type opponent first off, designed for him to get the ring rust and weight off that he has amassed since been out of the ring.
