Tyson Fury agrees lucrative deal to be co-promoted by Top Rank
Tyson Fury has agreed a lucrative multi-fight deal to be co-promoted by Bob Arum's Top Rank Boxing.
The former IBF, WBA and WBO champion and his promoter Frank Warren announced the deal, said to be worth £80million, on Monday.
His fights will now be shown on ESPN in the United States, while BT Sport will continue to broadcast his bouts in the United Kingdom.
The news will cast doubt over a potential rematch with WBC champion Deontay Wilder, who has a deal with Showtime, while any future domestic dust-up between Fury and Anthony Joshua may also be complicated due to the latter's contract with streaming service DAZN.
However, Fury is confident the announcement will not stop an agreement being reached with Wilder for a second meeting between the pair.
"As far as I'm concerned, the fight is more makeable now than ever. I can only fight who they put in front of me," he told a news conference.
"I want the biggest fights, the Joshuas, the Wilders of the world, and everyone else out there too. If you're watching Deontay, I'm coming for you."
