Tyson Fury Targets Seth Mitchell: He's Made For Me!
by Frank Stea
Undefeated heavyweight contender Tyson Fury 19-0 (14KOs) is currently awaiting his next opponent for a ring return date of December 1st in Belfast, Ireland.
An eager Fury recently told World Boxing News that his previous 19 professional contests were all showcase fights and the time is right for him to now step up and some of fight the bigger names in the division.
The ex-Irish champion realizes that he is not going to lure in names such as David Haye, David Price, Alexander Povetkin and the top dog Wladimir Klitschko, all of whom he expressed a great interest in fighting immediately and may need to fight some of the title pretenders first.
Apparently, there is a proposed date in March that may see the outspoken fighter make his debut in the United States against names in the ilk of Tomasz Adamek, although Fury has now shown the most interest in a battle with unbeaten American heavyweight star Seth “Mayhem” Mitchell 25-0 (19KOs).
“If I was coming to the U.S. to fight, I’d like to fight Seth Mitchell," Fury told World Boxing News.
"He’s got a good ranking by the WBC and I think it would be a sell-able fight for T.V.
"People would be interest in seeing two undefeated heavyweights go in there and getting it on like the old days.
“I think that would be a good fight and I think he is tailor made for me - so there we have it.
"There is the challenge, let's make it happen.”
