Heavyweight contender Tyson Fury is already mapping out a plan to stage several fights before a planned retirement.
Fury is currently training for a scheduled rematch with WBC world champion Deontay Wilder, which is set for February 22 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
There is a rematch clause that goes both ways, and that indicates that a trilogy fight will take place regardless of the outcome. They fought to a controversial twelve round spit draw in December 2018.
After overcoming Wilder, Fury would target a domestic mega-match unification with IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO world champion Anthony Joshua.
“I expect Wilder next, Joshua, then Dillian Whyte. Then I’m out,” Fury told IFL TV.
Following Joshua, the next fight would be against WBC interim-champion Dillian Whyte.
Whyte has been the top rated contender under the WBC since 2018.
The WBC ordered the Wilder-Fury winner to make a mandatory defense against Whyte by February of 2021.
"He’s been mandatory for I don’t know how many days, 2,000 days, and he hasn’t had a world-title shot. So when I beat Wilder I’ll give him a shot," Fury said.
“He deserves a shot. He’s a high-ranked contender who ain’t had a shot at a world title. It seems to me everybody else has but him. So when I beat Wilder I’ll give him a shot, he can be a defence for sure. One of my last three. Joshua and Whyte - done.
“I think he’s a good fighter. Good boxer, good puncher, gritty determination, can climb off the floor and win fights. I think he’s just one of those people who’s not just had the lucky breaks that everyone else has. I think he’ll get his shot. He’s only 31/32, same age as me, young for a heavyweight. He’s coming off a bit of a layoff, six months or so, so he needs to get back in the ring and get match fit again.”
