Boxing news: Frank Warren reveals how Tyson Fury will land Deontay Wilder rematch | Boxing | Sport

Tyson Fury secured a second round TKO to make his record read 28 wins and a draw in 29 pro fights.

That draw was the controversial showdown with Deontay Wilder back in December last year when Fury got back up from the canvas after a stunning knockdown.

And now he wants a rematch with the Bronze Bomber after wining the first of three fights in his deal with ESPN.

Fury battered German Schwarz and showed he was a class above. Fury then revealed he wants one more fight this year before taking on Wilder in 2020.

And Frank Warren has offered more detail of his path over the next 12 months.

“He will fight in either late September or early October, probably in New York, hopefully Madison Square Garden again against a top five ranked opponent, and then after that we will be moving heaven and earth to make the fight with Deontay Wilder,” Warren told talkSPORT.

“Both the boxers want to make the fight, the promotion camps want to do it, so I am hoping we can get it over the line.”

And Warren believes Fury is back in love with the sport that rocked his personal life in the years after he became heavyweight world champion after beating Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015.


“Boxing became a real inspiration for him (Fury), and so much so you can see now he is in love with the sport, he’s enjoying himself,” Warren added.

“He’s in a fantastic place mentally, he’s in a fantastic place physically, and he just loves what he is doing.

“I thought if he could lose the weight and get himself back fit, I thought he would have the beating of most of them, but to be honest now he is absolutely surprising me.

“He still only 30 years of age, which is young for a heavyweight, got no miles on the clock, it’s not like he has been in any real wars, three years out the ring, he’s got another five or six years if he chooses to carry on boxing.”

Fury spent nearly three years out the ring after battling depression and drug addiction before returning with wins over Sefer Seferi and Francesco Pianeta, the draw with Wilder and now the win over Schwarz.


Fury appears to have gone cold on the possibility of fighting Anthony Joshua in the near future after his shock defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr.

Joshua will face Ruiz again later this year and will need to win to get himself back in contention to face Wilder or Fury any time soon.

Fury made sure to mock Joshua when given the opportunity after dispatching Schwarz.

During a visit to the German’s dressing room to congratulate him for his efforts he referenced Joshua by saying: “We recently seen last week some people quit. They quit. Body’s wrecked, heavy and he didn’t want to fight on.

“You wanted to continue. You’re a good lad. Keep your chin up and back in the gym.”

Joshua has also been given some advice from David Haye, who was working as a pundit for the Fury fight.


He believes Joshua needs to alter his pre-fight routing to make sure he’s ready for what’s to come.

“It appeared that Ruiz was more battle hardened in the battle zone and Joshua looked uncomfortable,” he said.

“I just think he needs much tougher sparring. I used to go on my own and literally spar with anybody.

“People from the street. But that hasn’t really been the case with Joshua.

“He needs to spar with all-comers who are allowed to try to knock him out.

“My sparring partners were allowed to try to knock me out if they could — and that’s what made it live.”
