Tyson Fury’s Team Considers Groundbreaking Four-Man Boxing Tournament Featuring Anthony Joshua

Written by on April 14, 2023

Fury’s team is considering a four-man tournament featuring heavyweight division’s biggest stars, according to Simon Jordan. The tournament would include Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder, Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury. The fights would happen in a series, with the winners of the AJ vs Wilder and Fury vs Usyk matches meeting in a final in December in Saudi Arabia

George Warren, the son of Fury’s UK promoter Frank, has not ruled out the idea, but no official talks have taken place yet. “It would be amazing, wouldn’t it?” said Warren. “But it’s still speculation at the moment. We haven’t received any formal offer or communication that is something that is there to be done.”



Could the Fury-led Boxing Tournament Featuring Anthony Joshua be the Biggest Event in Boxing History?

Despite this, Warren expressed openness to the idea and added that if an opportunity arises, they will consider it. “Tyson is the decision-maker, but certainly, if there’s an opportunity, we’re happy to look at it,” he said. “At this moment in time, we’ve not had an offer for anything. But if one was to come in, it will remain private, it would be discussed, and we’ll go from there.”


Tyson Fury is a British professional boxer who was born on August 12, 1988. He is considered one of the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time, with a career record of 31 wins, one loss, and one draw. Fury is known for his exceptional footwork, agility, and technical skills inside the ring. He has won multiple heavyweight titles, including the WBA, IBF, WBO, and Ring magazine titles. Fury is also known for his charismatic personality, outspokenness, and his battles with mental health issues. He remains a popular and influential figure in the world of professional boxing.

Currently, Fury is without an opponent after his deal to unify all four belts with Usyk collapsed due to a disagreement over financials. Meanwhile, Joshua recently won against Jermaine Franklin, and Wilder has been out since October 2022, where he knocked out Robert Helenius in round one of his comeback bout. Usyk, on the other hand, has been ordered into a mandatory WBA title defense against Daniel Dubois, and talks are ongoing.


Return of Fury 

Fury’s team is now looking for a return fight in the summer, and promoter Bob Arum has suggested Andy Ruiz Jr. as a possible opponent. “Andy Ruiz stopped Anthony Joshua, is a former world champion,” said Warren. “We’re not focusing on who the opponent is at the moment for Tyson. The first step is to speak with Tyson, which we’ll do next week. We’ll find out what he wants to do. Can he choose to stay active, compete in a fight, or have a UK stadium fight? If he does, then again, we’ll assess who is available and look at all the different opponents and anyone that wants to fight Tyson.”

However, potential tournament featuring Fury, Joshua, Wilder, and Usyk would certainly be an exciting event for fans, but no official talks have taken place yet. For now, Fury’s team is focused on finding him a return fight in the summer, with Andy Ruiz Jr. being one of the possible opponents.
