Tyson Fury’s ‘absolutely monstrous’ next fight has been revealed by promoter Eddie Hearn and it’s a big one.
The self-proclaimed ‘Gypsy King’ is looking for his next assignment following his TKO victory over Derek Chisora last December.
He had been slated to meet WBO, WBA (super) and IBF world champion Oleksandr Usyk in a blockbuster undisputed clash until both parties failed to agree terms.
Fury uploaded a video on social media, teasing ‘some massive news’ and revealed a fight date is imminent.
During a workout, he said: “I’ve got some massive news coming. An imminent fight date and absolutely monstrous fight.
“Keep tuned, because the WBC world heavyweight king is back in action coming very soon, peace out.”
Well, according to Hearn, Fury will face Andy Ruiz Jr in London on July 22.
Asked who he thinks the WBC title holder will take on next, the Matchroom chief replied: “Andy Ruiz, July 22nd.”
A potential Fury vs. Ruiz Jr showdown could take place at Wembley Stadium.
The Mexican-American fighter lost his titles in the rematch as ‘AJ’ regained the unified titles.
The 33-year-old has since picked up wins over Chris Arreola and Luis Ortiz as he appears to be set to fight for world honours once again.
As for Fury, he’s rattled off six wins in a row since his controversial draw against Deontay Wilder in their first meeting back in December 2018.
He boasts wins against Tom Schwarz, Otto Wallin, Wilder (x2), Dillian Whyte and Chisora.
