Tyson Fury sends Santa his post-Christmas opponent list

Phil Jay 05/12/2013

Self-retired heavyweight Tyson Fury has stated that his will end his recently-imposed exile from the sport if he manages to secure one of the opponents on his Christmas wishlist.

The 25 year-old announced his hotly-debated decision to step away from the sport following the collapse of a mega-money fight with David Haye last month, although trainer and uncle Peter has since denied this to WBN.

Promoter Mick Hennessy has also confirmed that Fury is currently an active fighter and hopes to secure the undefeated contender a spring return against a big name.

Fury, who last fought when stoppage Steve Cunningham in April, has himself revealed an array of possible future foes via his Twitter account that he hopes will be handed to him this festive season as he enjoys his break with family and friends.

The list includes domestic rival Dereck Chisora, whom Fury defeated in 2011, along with Deontay Wilder, either of the Klitschko’s and WBC number one Bermane Stiverne.
