GOOD MORNING BOXING FANS
Much of yesterday’s discussion was dominated by talk of Tyson Fury’s potential opponents, with Eddie Hearn and David Price suggesting he should fight WBC mandatory Dillion Whyte.
Hearn told iFL TV: “As fans, we should be calling for Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte. Imagine the build-up, imagine the fight.
“It does well over a million PPV buys, sells out a stadium. That is the fight. The winner fights the winner of Oleksandr Usyk vs Anthony Joshua II.”
But John Fury disagrees, arguing his son should only look to fight Usyk next.
He told talkSPORT: “He’s got to go for Usyk or nothing in my idea. It’s Usyk next or nothing.
“I wouldn’t bother with the rest of them, they’re not in Tyson’s class.
“Would Dillian Whyte deal with Deontay Wilder? No. So why would you want to put him in with my son and get him knocked out?
“At the end of the day, he just got knocked out by a 42-year-old man (Alexander Povetkin) via a slap by the back of his hand.”
Elsewhere, David Haye has volunteered himself to be Tyson Fury’s next opponent in the ring.
The Brit retired in 2018 but would happily return to fight Fury – a man he regrets not facing while he was still an active boxer.
He told iFL TV: “I’m just saying, there’s gonna be a time where they’re gonna need an opponent.
“And ideally you want an opponent that makes the most money. So FYI, the Hayemaker’s in the gym.”
