Lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is currently in final negotiations to secure a highly anticipated rematch with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.
News of the fight confirmation was said to be expected tomorrow but either way, an announcement should be forthcoming in the next week or so at the latest.
Elsewhere at the top of the heavyweight division heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua confirmed his next fight this week as Jarrell Miller for June 1st at Madison Square Garden.
Tyson Fury has now given his reaction to the fight news:
Fair play to Fury for wishing both men well despite the fight angering the majority of boxing fans.
Boxing fans will hope that the winner will then take on the winner of Fury vs Wilder 2 in a fight by the end of the year that could be one of the biggest fights in boxing history.
A bout that would see a true undisputed heavyweight champion of the world crowned and one that would settle this Joshua, Fury and Wilder debate once and for all.
Hopefully boxing politics won’t get in the way again from making it happen when the time comes.
