Frank Warren firmly believes Tyson Fury will face Oleksandr Usyk in a blockbuster unification bout.
After watching Usyk defeat Anthony Joshua on points in Jeddah on Saturday night, Fury took to social media to confirm he would love to face the WBA Super, WBO, IBF and Ring Magazine world heavyweight champion.
That would suggest the Gypsy King will inform the WBC he does not wish to relinquish their title having been set a deadline of Friday to make a decision on his future.
And Warren, the undefeated 34-year-old’s UK promoter, is confident the bout boxing fans crave can be signed and sealed with the minumum of fuss.
Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “There were talks before the [AJ] fight and Tyson had to make his mind up.
“But he’s made his mind up and he wants the fight. Usyk wants the fight and we’ve got to work out a way to make it happen.
“They both know the fight’s worth a lot of money. So it’s whether it’s going to go back to Saudi or somewhere else.
“But there’s no problem in making the fight — both camps get on very well with each other.”
Fury relinquished the Ring title and announced his retirement in the build-up to the Usyk-Joshua rematch.
But it appears his time away from the spotlight will be shortlived and Warren firmly believes his man has what it takes to dethrone Usyk.
Asked how Fury would beat the Ukrainian, he said: “Being Tyson Fury!”
Speaking last week, Fury’s US promoter Bob Arum also suggested the WBC champion would return.
The Top Rank supremo said: “Once this fight is over we’re going to put together a total unification match between the winner and Tyson.
