Fury was razor-sharp during a routine heavyweight fight against Chisora in a three-fight bout that he took down via 10th round TKO and, today, “The Gypsy King” may be able to move on to intriguing bouts.
The most important of them all: the possibility of a fight with Oleksandr Usyk to win the undisputed heavyweight title, which is in talks to be held in springtime at Saudi Arabia.
The date when Fury (33-0-1 24 KOs) is prepared to fight in the future isn’t clear, but. After he had finished shouting obscenity-laced slurs at Usyk in his post-fight talk on the Saturday after his fight, Fury revealed that he was injured on his right hand during the fight. It was even more concerning, will likely need surgery on his painful right elbow.
The expected recovery timeframe for this operation is most likely to take between six and eight weeks, as per Fury who underwent surgery to eliminate bone spurs on the elbow of his left following his win over Deontay Wilder in October. Fury 34 needed cortisone shots to numb pain in both elbows prior to his 11th-round KO win to keep his heavyweight title.
“Let’s provide the fans with one champion with a single name and appearance,” Fury said. “Usyk is ready to the contest. He came in tonight, so fair game to him. It’s not easy for a boxer to understand. He’s a swift southpaw with excellent techniques, Olympic gold medalist and performing well and I’m eagerly anticipating the new challenge.”
If a deal cannot be reached for a meeting with Usyk, Fury said he will turn on Joe Joyce, who was at the ringside, a tough-as-an-ox heavyweight who just scored an impressive 11th round KO win over Joseph Parker in September.
“Sometimes it happens that the big fights do not happen because of some reason but I’ve got an excellent feeling that this fight is likely to occur,” Fury said. “But in the event that it does not happen because of XYZ reason and we’ll have Joe Joyce at Wembley next year too. However, if that the Usyk scenario does occur I’ll go with him and I’ll then get Joyce at Wembley Why not?”
It’s possible that Fury is able to fight both Usyk as well as Joyce. There is a high likelihood that a match with Usyk could happen first. It’s certain to bring an unprecedented earnings for Fury and will be on the short list of greatest boxing fights.
Usyk is an outstanding boxer who took home the Olympic gold medal as well as the undisputed cruiserweight title. He beat Anthony Joshua to capture three heavyweight titles last year , and was able to defend them in the August fight. If anyone can finish off Fury’s title reign it’s Usyk 35-year-old Ukrainian who is the No. 1 ESPN boxer. 4 pound-for-pound boxer. (Fury is at No. 6.)
In addition to Usyk in addition to Joyce, Fury could always consider reviving talks to have a anticipated grudge bout against Joshua. Even though it seemed Fury had settled his dispute with Wilder in the wake of one of the most epic trilogies in heavyweight history The American could be able to secure a second opportunity to challenge Fury’s WBC title by winning on Andy Ruiz Jr., an event that is being planned for the first quarter of next year.
“The Gypsy King” claimed that he had been out of the game following an April knockout win over Dillian Whyte. However, now the Gypsy King is lining against a number of opponents in the near future.
“Let me win the Usyk fight, then I’ll go return to Vegas to fight Wilder Fury,” …” Fury stated. “I believe that I’m able to beat anyone. I’m having a great time. I’m back to the my feet, governing the world with a ferocious hand.”
