Bob Arum Talks Tyson Fury Future
Speaking to Fight Hub TV, Arum said: “The MMA guy is still recovering from an injury. I would love to do that fight.
“Depending on Ngannou’s contract with the UFC, we need to do it with or without the UFC, but that would be a huge, huge event.
“Sure, I’m interested. Who wouldn’t be? Ngannou is the heavyweight champion of the UFC, and Tyson Fury, I think it would be a huge, huge event.
“He didn’t say dollars. Maybe he was talking pesos.
“That’s up to Tyson. He’s a very intelligent guy and has a lot of opportunities outside of boxing. For a guy like Tyson, you take it one step at a time.
“So I’m optimistic without discussing it with him, sometime down the road, he’ll fight the winner of Joshua-Usyk, which I hope is Usyk, and he’ll fight Ngannou and maybe call it a day.
“But I know he loves training and he loves being in the ring, so that’s a plus.”
Arum’s comments were said after Fury provided fans with an update regarding his future.
Tyson Fury Updates Fans on His Future Ambitions
Fury said: “I will be back in the ring 100 per cent, just like in the movie when Jerry Maguire shouted ‘Show Me The Money!’
“If anyone can show me the money then it’s Frank Warren, I call him the Magic Man and we are going to make some big, big things happen.
“When this middleweight knocks out this bodybuilder there will only be one man to sort this absolute circus out. What I would say to the people who want this fight to happen is: you better have a big cheque book.
“Because to bring the big GK out of retirement to redeem this country – yet again – it’s going to cost.
“I am a prize fighter and I do fight for prizes but it is going to cost if you want me to do a mission on this middleweight and show what a real heavyweight does to them.
“And that will be expensive, they will need deep pockets and then we can talk but not before the Usyk vs Joshua fight happens first, because it is pointless before.”
