TYSON FURY is a bigger star Stateside than Deontay Wilder or Anthony Joshua, his promoter Frank Warren claimed. The Gypsy King, 30, smashed German Tom Schwarz in two rounds on June 15 performing in Las Vegas for the first time in his career. Promoter Frank Warren claims Tyson Fury is a bigger star in the US than Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua Fury’s win came two weeks after his countrymen Anthony Joshua, 29, suffered a catastrophic US debut losing his unified titles to 25-1 outsider Andy Ruiz Jr. The win in Sin City was the first bout in the Brit’s £80million Top Rank deal with US promoter Bob Arum planning on having Fury box twice in America before rematching Wilder. Warren claims the decision to backdate the rematch was the correct one – and insisted his man is more popular across the pond than AJ and America’s own Wilder. He said: “In the space of only a few weeks, Tyson has become one of the most recognisable sporting figures in the biggest market of them all.

Oleksandr Usyk wants all the belts at heavyweight (Picture: Getty Images) Oleksandr Usyk has been named as mandatory challenger for the WBO heavyweight title, putting him in prime position to fight the winner of the Anthony Joshua vs Andy Ruiz rematch. The Ukrainian is yet to make his debut at heavyweight, but is stepping into the division with a lot of hype having held the WBC, WBA, WBO, IBF, and Ring Magazine belts at cruiserweight. The WBO have taken this into consideration, and his position as their ‘super champion’ by naming him as the mandatory challenger for the heavyweight belt, ahead of their number one-ranked challenger, Dillian Whyte. Whyte made his case to be made mandatory and asked for the WBO to delay their decision till after his fight against Oscar Rivas on 20 July, but his protests have been ignored. Andy Ruiz holds four straps at heavyweight after beating Anthony Joshua (Picture: AP Photo) Joshua and Ruiz are likely to fight again in either November or December, meaning Usyk will be well placed to meet the winner early in 2020. The 32-year-old will want to fight at least once before then to get accustomed to the heavyweight division, after his scheduled debut against Carlos Takam in May was cancelled due to a bicep injury. Usyk’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, said in May: ‘He had a bicep injury but he is not having surgery. I think he will return to the ring in August. It will be five weeks until he can start training again.’ An opponent has not been confirmed, but the clash with Takam could be rescheduled, while another Matchroom-promoted heavyweight, Joseph Parker is interested in the fight. ‘I’d love to welcome Usyk to the heavyweight division,’ Parker told Boxing Scene. ‘He’s a really, really great fighter. What he did in cruiserweight is amazing. I’d like to test myself against the best in the world and he’s certainly that.’ [metro-zone-post-strip] Whyte is left disappointed to be overlooked for a world title shot again, but his team are now pursuing a crack at WBC champion Deontay Wilder. The fight with Rivas in July is likely to be confirmation of a mandatory challenger to the Bronze Bomber, if Hearn, who also promotes Whyte, gets his way. ‘We’re getting there,’ Hearn told Sky Sports. ‘We won’t give in. 600 days this weekend that Dillian Whyte has been WBC No 1, that’s virtually unheard of and he’s boxed in that period, [Derek] Chisora, [Robert] Helenius, Lucas Browne, Joseph Parker, Chisora again. ‘We feel that he deserves a shot and I think the general public do as well. I believe the fight against Oscar Rivas will be for the WBC ‘interim’ world title, it will be for the mandatory position, but we want to know when that comes. ‘He’s already waited 600 days. Let’s not wait 800 or 900 days, so we need a date for the WBC to confirm when Deontay Wilder must fight the winner of that fight. ‘Effectively what we do know is, all Dillian Whyte has to do is win on July 20 to become the official challenger for Deontay Wilder. That’s why now there’s even more pressure on that fight. ‘An official resolution will be confirmed next week. We hope Mauricio Sulaiman, the president of the WBC, will actually fly to London to announce this, we can all get on with our lives and hopefully Dillian Whyte beats Rivas and finally gets his shot at the WBC world title.’ [metro-link url=”https://metro.co.uk/2019/06/23/joey-dawejko-finally-responds-anthony-joshua-sparring-ko-rumours-10031556/” title=”Joey Dawejko finally responds to Anthony Joshua sparring KO rumours”] [metro-link url=”https://metro.co.uk/2019/06/22/andy-ruiz-jr-responds-tyson-fury-anthony-joshua-deontay-wilder-10028288/” title=”Andy Ruiz Jr. responds to Tyson Fury calling him ‘a bum’ despite beating Anthony Joshua”]

Fury made short work of Schwarz (Picture: Getty) Ben Davison has revealed Tyson Fury ignored his instructions during his fight with Tom Schwarz. Fury destroyed Schwarz inside two rounds in what was a mismatch encounter, stopping the German under a flurry of unanswered punches in the second. It was Fury’s Las Vegas debut, but Davison explained his heavyweight threw their gameplan out the window once the fight started. ‘It doesn’t mean it wasn’t a very good performance, but there were certain things I asked him to do,’ Davison told the Telegraph. ‘Speed was the key for the first part of that fight. This is Corner Cam for #FurySchwarz and it includes another run in with security 👀 "Speed, speed, speed. Feints and fluidity." Billy Joe: "Lovely stuff!" 😆 What Ben Davison said to Tyson Fury before, during and after the Tom Schwarz fight… pic.twitter.com/0Tne3LUx7O — Boxing on BT Sport 🥊 (@BTSportBoxing) June 22, 2019 ‘But I knew Tyson had it in the back of his mind that if he had the opportunity to break him physically, then he would. That wasn’t what I asked him to do.’ Davison’s corner instructions have been released since the fight, and the young trainer can be heard telling Fury to remain calm and hold back. Fury will fight Wilder in their rematch in the near future (picture: Getty) Fury had promised to put on a show for his bow on ESPN, and almost replicated Deontay Wilder’s one-round demolition of Dominic Breazeale. Wilder and Fury are now expected to fight each other early next year, but Top Rank boss Bob Arum recently admitted he might try and stage the rematch next, at the end of 2019.
