The WBC’s president Mauricio Sulaiman has declared that Tyson Fury will “take on another fight” before a rematch with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.
A second fight has been anticipated since their first meeting in December, in which Wilder retained his belt after an enthralling draw in Los Angeles, but the governing body’s president, Sulaiman said he was “confident” the fight would take place
While on Tuesday, Sulaiman confirmed the rematch would be “at a later date”.
“While WBC champion Wilder confirmed his willingness to fight the rematch, Fury will take on another fight with expectations to do the rematch at a later date,” he wrote on Twitter.
Last week, Britain’s Fury, 29, signed a lucrative deal with US broadcaster ESPN and will receive a reported fee of £80m for five fights.
It could make future negotiations with American Wilder more difficult, given he is aligned with the Showtime network.
