Whilst we patiently wait to see who Tyson Fury will be taking on in his comeback fight, further down the line the former heavyweight champion of the world could be set to meet another of the same ilk.

The colourful character that is Shannon Briggs has been entertaining the media with stories of Tyson contacting him with regards to a fight in September.

It appears that Briggs, who has a record that reads 60-6-1 with 53 wins coming by way of knockout, received a test message from the Gypsy King, with the 48-year-old American remarking to the media,

?He?s been texting me all day. We?ve been talking. He?s like, ?Listen, we want to have a tune-up in June,? and then he said he wants to fight me in September. So if that?s true, what he said is true, I got the text right here to prove it. I don?t want anyone to think I?m trying to gas it up. If he get through me, then maybe, but I don?t think he?ll get through me. Listen, I already got him beat. Look what he said, his first words, ?Hi Champ.? He know my name. He already lost.?

Colourful stuff as ever from the American.

Continuing though, Briggs airs his views on the current heavyweight scene further adding, about Tyson?s standing in the heavyweight rankings,

?He?s 6?9? but I don?t really see all that, because he ain?t no puncher.

?As a big guy, he ain?t no puncher. I see Joshua at the top. Wilder is right there. You can?t take nothing away. He?s got thunder. As far as Tyson Fury, I?m not really giving him all that, because he walked away from the game because he had some bad things. I?ve been through that myself.?

If, as we hope, a contract gets signed, the build-up to the actual fight could, as they say, be something else.
