Bob Arum is happy that he has signed Tyson Fury, a heavyweight to a promotional agreement in February. Tyson will fight Germany’s Tom Schwarz at MGM Grand Garden Arena.
The show will be promoted by the people who are going to watch, if tickets will be sold. In a conversation with Yahoo Sports, Arum said that Tyson is the person many people will like to watch. He said that he is excellent and has not seen anyone like him for a long time.
He believes that he is unique and wants to fight to show how big he can get.
The heavyweight division had key players who include Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, Lennox Lewis and Riddick Bowe and all Hall of Famers. This division has been impressive since 1990. The division got at it pick when earlier men the likes of Ray Mercer, Tommy Morrison, Shannon Briggs, Bruce Seldon, Buster Douglas, Frank Bruno and Herbie Hide.
Andy Ruiz won against Anthony Joshua on June in New York in what is viewed as one of the biggest upset in the division. From the time Douglas defeated Tyson in 1990, most of the gossip revolved around the fight between Deontay Wilder and Joshua.
The future is not certain for many fans. This is after Joshua loss to Ruiz and Fury decision to take temporary fights to build his name among American fans. But things will get better given that this year Wilder will fight Ruiz Ortiz and Joshua will fight Ruiz. Fury is also likely to get second trial bout early fall.
Fury told Yahoo Sport that it’s a good idea to get introduced to American fans. When they fight again with Wilder, he will be better and more prominent. He also believes that he will get bigger if he is properly introduced to the U.S public.
If Fury gets past Schwarz on Saturday, he will fight Wilder, a fighter of same calibre coming spring.
Fury is uncertain whether he will get past Schwarz. However, Wilder has agreed to rematch with Fury. If Wilder will lose to Ortiz, then Wilder Fury will happen in 2020. In case Joshua defeats Ruiz, he will fight either Wilder or Fury depending on who will win.
Joshua career will be compromised in case Ruiz will defeat him. Continues losses will cost Joshua pay cut from his current $20 million per game. Given the much he has made, Joshua may decide to walk away instead of working his way back. But the way he will lose will also be a factor to consider.
In case he wins, a lot of possibilities will be open up. However, this is going to take inspired effort for Joshua to loss. If Wilder-Fury 2 takes place around March, then the winner will fight Joshua in June 2020. The loser will also fight Ruiz, what will be the most difficult fight between former champions.
Wilder is a good puncher while Fury is the best boxer out of the group. So there is a high probability that one of them will remain to the last stand at the end of next year. Fury is confident that he will emerge as the best. He said that he doesn’t worry anything about what the fighter can do; this is because he has dedicated his whole life to boxing, and trains very hard. He insisted that there is no good guy compared to him. He considers himself the best heavyweight of his generation.
While these are just mare words, what is remaining, is for him to back them up. Let us wait and see; it’s just a matter of time.
