Tyson Fury has revealed that he will have the rest of the month off ahead of his next fight.
The former unified world heavyweight champion, who beat Wladimir Klitschko back in November 2015 to claim the WBO, IBF, WBA Super, IBO and Ring Magazine titles in Dusseldorf, Germany, made his second appearance on the comeback roadshow in Belfast recently.
Fury came back in June from a 924-day period of exile, exclusively live on BT Sport, when his blown-up cruiserweight opponent Sefer Seferi retired after four rounds at Manchester Arena.
But on the same platform on August 18, the man who beat the man took on Francesco Pianeta and dominated the German-based Italian former world title challenger over 10 rounds at Windsor Park to setup a showdown with Deontay Wilder.
And the 30-year-old took to social media to reveal that he would return to training on September 1 ahead of his fight with the WBC champion.
Frank Warren, Fury’s promoter, said after Fury’s win over Pianeta that further details regarding the self-styled Gypsy King’s challenge of the undefeated 40-0 (39 KOs) Alabaman would be revealed in due course.
Boxing Scene understands either the MGM Grand Garden Arena or the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas will host the contest on one of two dates in November. The fight will be screened on BT Sport Box Office in the UK and on Showtime Pay-Per-View Stateside.
