The head of the Top Rank promotion company Bob Arum hopes that the WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury will have time to fight the WBA / WBO / IBF title holder Anthony Joshua by the end of the year, but warns that the upcoming fight with Alexander Usyk will not be for “Hey Jay’s “easy walk.
“The Fury – Joshua fight would have taken place if it hadn’t been for the arbitration court. They both want this fight. The Usyk fight won’t be a walk in the park for Joshua. Usyk is a very good boxer, so we’ll see. Of course, if Fury and Joshua win, it would be logical if they fought with each other further.
If Joshua performs in September, then he can fight in December. I know that this month in the Middle East they want to organize a big fight. The fact is that in December they open a new area in Saudi Arabia, so they want to have a big fight at the opening, “- said Bob Arum in an interview with the YouTube channel SNOWQUEENLA.
As a reminder, Arum also predicted that Fury would defeat Deontay Wilder even faster than in their second fight.
