Bob Arum reveals when Tyson Fury will return to boxing


The 90-year-old head of the promotional company Top Rank, Bob Arum, confirmed that the still reigning WBC heavyweight champion Briton Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) has now retired.

But there is a nuance, which the functionary told in a recent interview.

“Tyson Fury is gone,” Arum confirmed, “and he will be in retirement until we come to him with a proposal for the next big event. That’s when he’ll be back.”

On April 23, Fury successfully defended the title with a stoppage victory over mandatory challenger and compatriot Dillian Whyte. Zita and Gita – our report about this fight.

Arum’s British colleague Eddie Hearn said yesterday that Joshua and Fury would fight anyway.
