Tyson Fury is the WBC heavyweight champion of the world. Following his impressive win against Deontay Wilder, Fury, and his promotional outfit, have been on the lookout for his next opponent. As he trains his brother to take on Jake Paul, Fury revealed his list of next potential opponents with one very bizarre call-out thrown into the mix.
In an interview with iFL TV, Fury spoke about the whole Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury fight. Subsequently, he spoke about who he would fight next. When the interviewer asked ‘The Gypsy King’ if he would want to fight Joe Joyce in February, Fury replied, “I’m not really interested in fighting Joe Joyce. I’m probably looking at someone like Savannah Marshall to fight in a cross-gender heavyweight championship match-up. That’s more interesting to me.”
Fury continued to talk about the only two fights that interest him.
“I’m only interested in two fights – Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk, apart from that I’m not interested.”

It did not seem like Fury was joking around about the Savannah Marshall matchup. ‘The Gypsy King’ reiterated that he was serious about the fight.
If Fury were to fight Marshall, he would wear 16-ounce gloves. However, the WBO middleweight champion, Marshall, would wear 8-ounce gloves according to Fury.
‘The Gypsy King’ is currently enjoying training alongside his brother. He put out a statement saying he will definitely be fighting in February or March 2022. It will be interesting to watch who he fights next.
Tyson Fury calls Jake Paul a w***er during the press conference
Tyson Fury and John Fury sat alongside Tommy Fury during his press conference. Tommy Fury and Jake Paul will take each other on in Tampa Bay, Florida on December 18. Ahead of their fight, the pair had a press conference with ‘The Problem Child’ attending the event virtually. During the press conference, John and Tyson Fury mercilessly berated the YouTuber turned boxer.
They took full advantage of the fact that Jake’s presence was only virtual, denying him a chance to even talk properly. Tyson Fury spoke about being the best trash talker in boxing. Jake intervened and said that Fury spoke about him well a few months back. ‘The Problem Child’ then asked the Lancashire native to make up his mind.
Fury replied, saying, “That was few months ago and now I think you’re a w***er.”
