Tyson Fury: Boxing fans FUME at announcement - 'Are you for real!'

Speaking with TMZ this week, the Matchroom Boxing leader said that if his fighter gets past Jarrell Miller on June 1st at Madison Square Garden, Joshua's only goal is to face whoever is the WBC world heavyweight champion. "He is a generational heavyweight talent at the peak of his powers".

"Tyson wants (the rematch)", said Warren.

"I've done my stats and facts, i throw more punches than him, he's an ex-PED user, he hasn't done anything as a fighter, amateur or professional".

The former IBF, WBA and WBO champion and his promoter Frank Warren announced the deal, said to be worth £80million, on Monday.

The agreement with American broadcaster ESPN appears to make the hugely anticipated rematch with Wilder more hard, given that the World Boxing Council champion has been fighting on the Showtime channel.

After their controversial draw back in December 2018, the Deontay Wilder-Tyson Fury rematch has been eagerly craved by nearly everyone with an interest in boxing.

Arum is in a promotional war with Wilder's advisor Al Haymon and it looks impossible for the pair to do business, especially when both are backed by rival US TV stations.

He said he was shocked by the deal and, when he was asked if he felt there were other options if the Fury fight fell apart, he said "I don't even want to think about that". But when Miller once again brought up Joshua's mother, the unified world heavyweight champion returned the pleasantries promptly.

"Tyson Fury, one of the world's most dynamic and popular heavyweight boxers, and Hall of Fame promoter Frank Warren are joining forces with Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum's Top Rank", ESPN claimed in a press release.

Costello: And Mauricio Sulaiman, the president of the WBC, told me he has been speaking to both sides for a couple of weeks and that's why they have extended deadlines for the fight to be made.

Fury's deal with ESPN calls for a minimum of two fights per year in the United States, which could present another stumbling block for a British heavyweight showdown with rival Anthony Joshua, who himself has a stateside TV deal with sports streaming subscription service DAZN. It's changed dramatically, so it's up to us now to sit down and get it over the line.

"There's no fairytale story about what I do, I will beat Miller and knock him out". "If [Joshua] wants to fight Tyson, they're going to have to come to us".

"People will have to come to the Tyson Fury show now because I have my own platform".
