Tyson Fury is currently shopping around for a new promoter with all signs currently pointing to an announcement happening any day now.
Indeed, the former heavyweight champion of the world (25-0-18KO) has been keeping fans waiting with different social media posts this week with the promise of big news.
He has been relatively quiet in the last two days or so, with the last update of note coming during the week via a sparring photo with Australian heavyweight Lucas Browne:

Browne is currently in final preparations for a fight with Dillian Whyte later this month.
As for Fury, he’s been making big changes these past few months as he sheds the weight with the help of new trainer Ben Davison now in his corner.
No longer his long time trainer and uncle Peter Fury.
He’s also understood to be potentially looking for a big promoter and one man who is on the list is Matchroom’s Eddie Hearn.
In an interview with Sky Sports, Hearn said:
“If he comes with us, there’s a very straightforward road into a lot of heavyweight fights. Anthony Joshua, Dillian Whyte, Tony Bellew.”
“Ultimately the grand prize of Joshua because that is a huge fight.”
The Hearn move would make sense for the Joshua fight if nothing else.
It’s hard to see Fury relocating to the US with all his family and main team based in Europe.
So that rules out an American promoter, in theory.
Time will tell who he goes for.
