Plans for Tyson Fury to fight on March 17th in New York City are not yet finalized, according to the fighter’s trainer Peter Fury.
The highly-ranked WBC contender, who is said to be ready for his world title test this year, was touted to fight on St. Patricks’ Day at ‘The Big Apple’ but continues to await more details of the Stateside contest.
“The USA will be the next venue for Tyson,” Peter Fury told World Boxing News.
“A date and opponent are not yet confirmed. But Tyson will be out again in March as he builds towards fighting for the heavyweight championship of the world.”
Fury then went on to have a slight dig at his nephew’s arch-rival David Price by cheekily stating: “And I can tell you this, Tyson will be fighting a young opponent,” in a verbal jab at the British champion’s recent challengers Matt Skelton and Audley Harrison.
Fury, 24, is in line to face the winner of the upcoming WBC title eliminator between Chris Arreola and Bermane Stiverne next month.
He is currently scouting American foes for his spring bout before looking towards the Klitschko brothers.
