WBC Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury recently took to social media to tease fans about a surprise. Leaving fans on red alert amid the Coronavirus epidemic.
Following his resounding success against Deontay Wilder early this year, Fury was looking to fight a rematch. Wilder called for a rematch, exercising his right for the same almost immediately after his loss.
The pair were looking to go at it sometime in July. However, considering how Fury is suffering in quarantine along with everyone else in the U.K. there is no chance the two will meet in the ring anytime soon.
Fury’s promoters worry that it may be several months before Fury can even think about a return to the ring. They also initiated talks with Anthony Joshua along the lines of a unification bout. Something that fans all over the world have been dying to watch.
Fury’s management company ‘MTK‘ has been spearheading the mission to organize a fight between him and Joshua along with Eddie Hearn.
Fury, on the other hand, has been holding live workout sessions every day on social media. Fury claims it is his attempt at bringing people some relief and entertainment. The sessions have been working wonders.

“We’ve got some massive news coming soon. Some massive, massive news. I was just on the phone to the old MTK [management company] and we’ve got some massive news coming for you all. Very, very soon so keep an eye out for it all,” said Tyson Fury, leaving fans baffled as far as the nature of the news is concerned.
However, the fans have been hoping for the best considering the way Fury said it.
Perhaps an update on Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua?
Eddie Hearn and Fury’s promoters Frank Warren and Bob Arum have repeatedly been claiming that no discussions have taken place. Despite getting offers from the Middle East [Saudi Arabia] to host the fight between Fury and AJ.
Both Fury and Joshua are contractually obligated to take on their upcoming opponents. Fury is looking to take on Wilder in the final edition of their trilogy saga. Whereas, AJ is looking to defend his titles against his IBF mandatory Kubrat Pulev.
Step-aside offers have been proposed to both Wilder and Pulev. However, neither has shown any indication of interest in giving up their shot at the respective titles.
