Fury: Joshua Fight Would Have To Be in Vegas, No More UK Fights

Tyson Fury is less than two weeks away from his rematch showdown with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.

The second fight with Wilder will take place on February 22nd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

They fought to a controversial twelve round split draw in December 2018 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.


Should Fury win, Wilder has the option of exercising a contractual clause for an immediate third bout.

If there is no third bout, Fury would like to focus on a full division unification with WBA, WBO, IBF, IBO champion Anthony Joshua.

But he cautions that a fight with Joshua would have to take place in Las Vegas. Fury is not planning to fight in the UK in the future. Fury's last three fights have taken place in the United States. The Wilder rematch will be the third fight in a row in Las Vegas.

"No. I won't be fighting in the UK anymore. Based on the fact I've got an American boxing licence and the fact I've got an American TV contract," Fury told Gareth Davies.

"So the last three fights of my contract will be in the United States for sure. I'd fight anybody. This is the home of the Gypsy King now, Las Vegas. And I don't want to fight anywhere else, like [Floyd] Mayweather."

While Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn believes Saudi Arabia will push to get the fight - Fury's promoter Frank Warren makes it clear that his boxer will set the terms on where it happens.

“It will take place where the money is and there will be none of this 70-30 or 60-40 rubbish — it will be a 50-50 fight. And it will take place wherever Tyson wants it. But people keep forgetting that the loser of Wilder v Fury 2 has the right to call an immediate rematch," Warren said.

“Joshua has to handle mandatories with Kubrat Pulev and Oleksandr Usyk or vacate a belt. So the fight could not happen until next November, unless someone steps aside. The third Wilder-Fury fight is contracted so it is down to the loser if they want to call it.”

[QUOTE=Roberto Vasquez;20381061]They are scared of AJ - fight him, knock him out and take his 3 belts and make yourself a bigger star and money-earner for future fights. It's been proved now that AJ has a glass-jaw (was fairly obvious…
