Heavyweights step up, just not against each other

Dillian Whyte and Tyson Fury

But Fury told compatriot Joshua he needs to "grow up" and fight the big names as he prepares to face Andy Ruiz Jnr on June 1 in NY. "Since Joshua won't fight me yet, I want Wilder next year".

"I said to Bob, what's your motivation for this deal?"

'Everything that come out of Hearn's mouth is bull****.' Before Fury fights unbeaten but unheralded German Tom Schwarz on June 15, Wilder will have fought Dominic Breazeale this Saturday and Joshua boxed Andy Ruiz Jr on June 1, both in NY. 'This is what will keep me in this good place I'm in now after my struggle with depression. But I for one will be ready for Wilder and Joshua next year.

To man up. To step up to the plate.' Speaking at the BT Sport studio, Fury was decked out in a black and white suit emblazoned with photographs of 'all the iconic world heavyweight champions.' Himself included, with the picture over his heart.

Fury was sporting a suit and shirt combo that had the faces of some of the greatest heavyweights in history plastered all over it at yesterday's press conference to announce his June 15 fight. Thank you very much. I look forward to putting you to sleep.

'I'd fight you anytime anywhere seven days a week and five times on Sunday.


Between the competing broadcasting interests and promoters, that means the top fights will be hard to make.

Boxing fans really don't care, because all they want is to see the fights.

Wilder has his own fight ahead of him this coming Saturday night, when he faces mandatory challenger Dominic Breazeale at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Sulaiman's comments regarding the Whyte-Fury fight stem from the current situation Whyte has with the governing body. Fury takes on German Tom Schwarz (24-0, 16 KOs) in the first fight of a big TV deal with Top Rank and ESPN on June 15th in Las Vegas.

Joshua will make his seventh world title defence in NY on June 1 when he takes on Andy Ruiz Jr at Madison Square Garden.
