Tyson Fury will be campaigning solely in the United States for his next few fights as part of a deal with Top Rank and ESPN.

The lineal heavyweight ruler gave an update on his next outing, which is set to take place in Las Vegas over the coming months.

“Vegas next baby. We want Vegas next to give the fans something to travel to for an event this summer. That’s what we want. What we’re gearing up to,” Fury told mtkglobal.com.

“It’s all going good. I can’t wait for my date and next fight. I want to be back in action immediately. I’m ready to rock and roll.”

On hopes to be out regularly, Fury admitted three times in 2019 might be a push due to time constraints.

“At this level, it’s hard to get loads of fights. I want three fights minimum. But the longer it goes into the year the more unlikely that becomes.

“It is what it is, it’s boxing at the highest level and that’s the way it’s always been.

“All of the fights will be in America for the immediate future. But all of the great fans are back in the UK. So hopefully, I can have these few fights and come back to a massive homecoming.”

Currently hard in camp with Ben Davison and Billy Joe Saunders, ‘The Gypsy King’ is looking forward to his imminent return.

“I’m training hard and working on conditioning. I’m fit and well and healthy. My family is well too and we’re enjoying a newborn baby at home.

“Since the beginning of February I’ve been on tour but it’s coming to an end now. I’m ready to gear up for my training camp. If we have it in America then I’ve got to get out there,” he concluded.


Fury, 30, has been linked to facing Oscar Rivas, Kubrat Pulev or Joseph Parker next as he gets the ball rolling with ESPN.

Bob Arum is mulling over whether to feature Fury solely on the Pay-Per-View platform set to be used for Terence Crawford v Amir Khan on April 20.

Main rivals and current title holders Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder are currently tied to other TV networks.

The only chance Fury has of claiming a ‘title’ would be to face Manuel Charr for the WBA ‘regular’ version moving forward.
