After a successful return to the ring in Manchester, it has been announced that Tyson Fury’s next opponent will be retired former middleweight champion Chris Eubank.
The fight will take place in Las Vegas in November at the MGM Grand.
Fury is early favourite for the fight, being 21 years younger and 8 stone heavier, but the giant boxer is suitably wary of his new adversary:
“Chris may be older than me but Sefer Seferi was only 5 foot 9, whereas Eubank is 5 foot 10. That extra reach could cause me problems,” mused Fury.
“But Chris shouldn’t cause me too many issues and that will hopefully let me focus on showboating and making offensive comments in the media over the next few months.”
