Tyson Fury Vows To Fight in 2020 - Against Wilder or Someone Else

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is hungry to fight, with or without Deontay Wilder.

Fury was last seen in action back in February, when he stopped Wilder in seven rounds to capture the WBC title at MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Afterwards, Wilder exercised an immediate rematch clause, which forced a third meeting between the two.

The date of the trilogy has been pushed back several times due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Earlier this week, Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum reveled that a planned date of December 19th was no longer an option due to a conflict with an NFL game. The bout will could now take place a little earlier or a little later than originally scheduled.

Fury has not fought on UK soil since he beat Francesco Pianeta in Belfast back in 2018, but he's ready to make a return if BT Sport takes the money.

“I'm very ready to fight right now but the problem is I keep hearing different stories. I'm supposed to be fighting against Deontay Wilder on December 19 in Las Vegas. Recently I read they're trying to move it forward a week or back a week but the one thing I want to announce to the world is I will be fighting in December," Fury told Talk Sport.

“Whether it is Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas or Joe Bloggs in England. I want to fight. We are just waiting for the fight to be announced. If they put it back to next year, I want to fight now.

“I made it very, very clear that if we can't fight in American then I want to come back to England and have a homecoming. I'm about an hour from going AWOL. I need to know what is happening because the dates keep getting moved. Now they're saying December might not happen. BT Sport, if you're listening, get your hand in your pocket and get me back home. I'm on the verge of going AWOL again. I've been training twice a day since March.”

[QUOTE=NYG;20802957]Who does he need to beat? You think any of these heavyweights have a chance against Fury? If Fury slips into a depression again and doesn't care then maybe they have a chance but until that happens, no chance. Stop…

[QUOTE=Tyistall;20789004]Only one way to prove that. By actually fighting the best guys out there. Right? Nandrolone Fury won't do it though. He'd rather fight bums and get the credit from you idiots[/QUOTE] Who does he need to beat? You think…
