Frank Warren, promoter of WBC heavyweight champion Briton Tyson Fury, explained why they decided to abandon the fight with German Agit Kabayel, which was due to take place on December 5 and when his ward will fight next.
“Tyson hasn’t fought since he beat Wilder. He really didn’t want to be out for a whole year. Fury really wanted to box for his fans. We did our best to complete the deal, but a disagreement arose between Top Rank and ESPN. We couldn’t find a way to make everything work without spectators during the pandemic.
ESPN has a contract to broadcast Tyson’s next fights. So he will have a fight in February or March in the USA. Although our priority has always been a big battle with Joshua and ideally in the UK. We are now awaiting the court’s conclusion regarding the situation with Wilder. It’s also still a big fight, ”Warren said.
