Tyson Fury’s promoter Frank Warren has revealed the most likely opponent, timing and location for the Gypsy King’s next bout.

The former unified heavyweight champion of the word Fury, who fought out a controversial draw against the American WBC champion Deontay Wilder in LA last August and, according to Warren, a much-desired rematch is the most likely next move for his fighter.

“We're trying to make that fight [Wilder v Fury II] at the moment, everyone wants the fight and most importantly the fighters want it.

"The venue is looking like the U.S, that's where the money is,” he told ESPN.

“Tyson was disappointed with the judging with the last fight, as I was, so a lot of things need to be sorted but the U.S. is where they want it, probably in the second quarter.

"Vegas would be one of the options. I wouldn't want to go back to California, I didn't like working with the Californian commission and there were a lot of things we didn't like there.

These comments would be in line with the latest to come from the 30-year-old native of Manchester. He’s been casting doubt on the chances of an all-UK match-up between himself and the king of the division, Anthony Joshua.

“I don’t think it’s going to happen. I’m sorry to disappoint the sports fans. Joshua, even with two hammers in each hand, could not beat Tyson Fury. They [AJ’s camp] know that.”

Fury has recently been filmed back in training with Ben Davison and he looked better than ever on the pads. He may have even managed to shift a few pounds over the Christmas period, which is a frightening thought in itself.
