TYSON FURY might be again within the ring inside three months and WILL face a “top-five” fighter.
That’s in line with his promoter Frank Warren, who insists the pair nonetheless wish to safe a rematch with Deontay Wilder.
Talking on the Royal Albert Corridor final night time on BT Sport, Warren mentioned: “It was agreed that Fury could have a combat someday in Might or June.
“Initially we’ve received to kind out the venue and date. Then after that, I want to see him have the rematch.
“He’s going to combat any individual who’s within the prime 5 and that’s what he’ll do after which after that we’ll get to the [Wilder] combat.”
Fury and Wilder battled for the WBC heavyweight belt in December however the combat controversially resulted in a draw.
And whereas each boxers seemingly need a rematch, negotiations thus far have been unsuccessful.
The Gypsy King lately signed an £80million take care of the American promotional firm Prime Rank.
With Fury’s fights now being televised on ESPN in America, the transfer initially introduced doubt on the probabilities of the rematch with Wilder resulting from their rival promoters.
A rematch – for now – is off and Wilder will face obligatory challenger Dominic Breazeale.

Warren added: “That last show in the States [Wilder vs Fury], I wish that was my promotion, I’m not saying the judges were crooked or anything, only one judge was totally incompetent, but he [Fury] won that fight.
“Wilder’s got a mandatory to fight Breazeale – WBC called that, that’ll be Wilder’s next fight, once he gets through that he’s available to fight anybody.”
But for Fury, his next opponent is still unconfirmed.
With the various belts and rankings in the heavyweight division, there are ten potential men who could step into the ring with Fury next.
The standout name is British star Dillian Whyte, who knocked out Dereck Chisora in his last fight in December.
Luis Ortiz, Oscar Rivas and Manuel Charr are also on the list.
Warren said: “Everything’s got to be in Tyson’s best interest, that’s what it’s all about, you think where he’s come from a year ago to where’s he’s at. Give the man a break.
“It’s not like he’s not a fighter that don’t step up to the plate, he went to the States, he went to Germany to fight [Wladimir] Klitschko he deserves this.”
