Win or lose against Tom Schwarz on June 15th, don’t expect Tyson Fury’s next opponent to be Deontay Wilder.
With Wilder possibly negotiating for a highly anticipated title unification fight with Anthony Joshua, it would seem the fight would not happen next for the WBC champion.
On top of that, Fury told Ariel Helwani he expects to fight at least two more times in 2019, and that the time isn’t right for a rematch of their 2018 draw.
“This rematch has got to happen, but it won’t be in May, June, July or August. This fight, I’m being told, is likely to happen in March, April of next year. That’s the dates I’ve been given,” Fury explained on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show.
“I’ll probably have another couple of fights in between then if all goes well. I want to be active. I’m not playing anyone else’s games.
“I’ve got to think about me and my career, and my family, and my life. I’m not going to put my career on hold to wait for X, Y, Z people to take fights, no. I’m taking my career and destiny and holding them in my hands and when the time is right, we’ll do the fight.”
