This week, with a comeback fight scheduled for 9 June, we should find out who will be in the opposite corner to Tyson Fury.
But, following Tony Bellew’s five-round demolition of David Haye, on Saturday night at the O2 Arena, could we soon see a fight between Fury and Bellew?
Bellew is at the stage of his career whereby he’s looking for big fights (if he decides to continue to box on) and a bout against Fury would certainly fill an arena the size of the O2.
The possibility of Bellew taking the fight may also have increased courtesy of Fury’s outspoken views.
Following the fight, on Saturday night, Fury took to his Instagram account to declare,
“On a serious note, how long do you think it would take me to walk through Tony Bellew without defending myself?
“I don’t think he could beat me with both my hands behind my back. He would get tired after five or six punches. He is an old dosser; all he is good for is to be my opponent. If you’re out there Tony, after I knock you out in one round, I’ll give you a job cleaning my shoes.”
Controversial stuff from the outspoken former heavyweight world champion, but, is it enough to tempt Bellew into a showdown?
Here at Vital Boxing, we’d certainly like to see it happen.
