Fury is in pencil to fight Wilder for the third time on October 9, 2021 at the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada. Then the British heavyweight said he wanted to fight Whyte in December, Joshua in March 2022 and later that summer, then Chisora in late 2022.
“It’s been five fights, right?” Said Fury. “And then I’m going to take two years out of the ring, I’m going completely crazy again. And then I’ll come back at 37 and wipe the floor with the next one.
Fury, who is 33, won his current titles against Wilder in February 2020, defeating him by technical knockout in the seventh round. The two fighters haven’t fought since then, which is why Fury said he wanted to fight Whyte in December.
“December is a good date, I’m going to shut this bum down,” Fury said of Whyte. “It will be easy. And then I’ll fight Joshua in March when it’s in Saudi Arabia. Let’s do it. And then we can have a rematch this summer here at Wembley. ”
Fury and Joshua – the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight champion – agreed in principle to a two-fight deal in June 2020 and signed a contract in March, through a judge ruled in May that Wilder had the right to exercise his option for a third fight with Fury from a previous contractual agreement.

Prior to this fight, Fury said he will “absolutely wipe out” Wilder and that his opponent is “just a threat in someone’s nightmares.”
“It’s not going to seven rounds this time,” Fury said. “I’ll get him out of there nicely and quickly, folks, so we can have a drink afterwards.” ”
Fury also claimed in the interview that he is the greatest puncher in modern boxing history and that compared to him, all the other challengers in the heavyweight division are “just bums”.
“They’re just horny bums, all of them,” Fury said. “Wilders, Joshuas, Usyks, all of them. They are all tramps. And compared to me, they’re not all good.
