Default Comments Thread for: Tyson Fury signs ESPN fight deal worth reported £80m

British heavyweight Tyson Fury has signed a fight deal with a United States television network worth a reported £80m.

The deal, which is understood to cover Fury's next five fights, will see him broadcast on ESPN in the US while remaining on BT Sport in the UK.

Promoter Frank Warren said the deal was "something special".




Fury said he believes the move makes a rematch with WBC world champion Deontay Wilder "more makeable".

But Fury's December draw with Wilder aired on BT Sport in the UK as well as Showtime - who broadcast Wilder's fights - in the US.

Now Fury has his own US broadcaster, agreements will have to be reached between ESPN and Showtime over the airing of his fights in America.

It means Wilder, Fury and unified world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua all have rival US broadcasters, which could make negotiations for them to fight each another more challenging.

We don't know what's happening right now with Wilder/Fury II. According to Fury it would make it easier to make now.

Easier to make? Is that a joke? Please tell me he was joking? And Warren said 10 days ago this ESPN deal wasn't even part of the negotiations. Fight is going to be hard to make minus a purse bid or this being a co-PPV between SHO/ESPN.

Which HWs does ESPN have anyways? Pulev, Rivas and who? Maybe they can make a legitimate run at Whyte now?

Well that makes no sense.

How can it be easier to make when they already made it and it was supposedly an easy deal to make then.

Well that's what Fury said a few minutes ago at the presser. I didn't get that myself.

It means the chances of the rematch happening in the next few fights just took a huge nosedive imo.

The announcement was ‘ESPN has exclusive rights to Fury’s next fights’

Which to me rules out a co promotion of any kind. I guess it depends on how tied in Wilder is with Showtime. Maybe Al would let him go to ESPN if the money was there because the exposure would be massive.
