The promoter of the British world heavyweight champion WBC Tyson Fury Bob Arum said that the British star would ideally like to face Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk in an undisputed world heavyweight title fight. This was reported by Sky Sports.
But Usyk is set to defend his WBA, IBF and WBO belts in a rematch with Anthony Joshua, meaning Fury is now expected to put his WBC belt on the line in a fight against Dillian Whyte.
"The alternative is that if Joshua decides not to exercise his rematch against Usyk and decides to step aside, the fight we would like to make is between Usyk and Fury."
Tyson himself did not name anyone whom he would like to fight next.
"I'm just chilling, enjoying life, taking one day at a time, and enjoying myself. I'm not really interested, because to be honest it doesn't really make much sense who I want to fight at this moment. It's who's available and what makes sense later on," Fury said as he attended BOXXER Fight Night in Wembley.
The WBC stated last month Fury and Usyk had 30 days to agree a fight, or Fury would be ordered to face the WBC interim champion, Whyte.
