WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury Could Potentially Return On July 22 At Wembley Stadium In London


WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury could potentially return on July 22 at Wembley Stadium in London, according to co-promoter George Warren of Queensberry Promotions.

“It could be. It could be,” Fury stated to International Boxing News with respect to a July 22 return.

Fury was in talks to have an undisputed fight with IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO champion Oleksandr Usyk on April 22 – but their bout fell through when both sides were unable to agree on the terms for the rematch.

One potential opponent was Joe Joyce – but that option was derailed on Saturday night, when Joyce was stopped in six rounds by China’s Zhilei Zhang, who now holds the WBO’s interim-title.

A potential Fury vs. Zhang showdown will depend on Joyce’s decision regarding an immediate rematch clause.

“Joe’s got that rematch clause, if he takes it, it’s obviously going to be a complication with anything to discuss alternative fights for him right now. And at the end of the day, Tyson’s the boss when it comes down to what he wants to do,” Warren said.


Warren cautions that a big summer stadium fight would have to get underway sooner than later – with Fury still undecided on his next move.

“If he wants to fight this summer, he’ll let us know, we’ll try to make it happen. We need to know pretty quickly to invoke something in the during the summer.

Especially if we’re going to try and do something in a stadium in the UK, which is where he would need to fight to try and make it work here. But yeah, opponents, choices, that will all come down to a conversation with Tyson,” Warren said.
