Tyson Fury’s NY date pushed back to April 20

Tyson Fury’s eagerly anticipated American debut has been pushed back a month to April 20 as the heavyweight contender heads Stateside for a New York contest in the spring

An initial date of March 17th was pencilled in for the former Irish champion, although a dream St. Patricks Day fight has now failed to materialize for a second year in succession.

Fury, 24, is closing in on a world title shot after putting together a formidable C.V of 20 wins, with 14 stoppages and has signalled his intention to fight WBC champion Vitali Kitschko at some point this year.

‘Too Fast’ is awaiting the outcome of the upcoming WBC title eliminator pitting Chris Arreola and Bermane Stiverne against each other, with Fury hoping to face the winner for the green belt if Vitali retires.

Another scenario is that Klitschko defends his title against nemesis David Haye, with the victor of the Arreola, Stiverne and Fury triangle battling whoever comes out of top if the fight comes off in Germany later in the year.

A list of opponents are currently being considered by Fury and his uncle/trainer Peter Fury.
