Bob Arum, spoke about where Fury should fight next after five of his last fights took place in the US. “It is very, very important that Tyson, having done his last five fights in the US, that he goes back and does a fight in the UK.” Fury has not fought in the UK since 2018.

“He is a Brit, he has plenty of fans in the UK, and if he does a fight in the UK, then comes back to the US, he will bring 10,000 Brits with him. American fans have to learn to sing like the Brits,” Bob Arum told Sky Sports.

“Who Fury fights next will be determined by Fury. If the fight is in the UK, I would think Whyte would be a good possibility, as well as Joyce,” he added.

‘The Gypsy King’ lit up the T-Mobile Arena when he fought Wilder. Despite Wilder being born and raised in America, it felt like it was Fury that had the home crowd rallying behind him. With every punch, every stumble, every exchange in favor of Fury, and the crowd would lose it.
