Fury defeated Deontay Wilder last month to retain the WBC heavyweight title, making it back-to-back stoppage wins over the American following their initial, controversial draw.
The result kept Fury unbeaten at 31-0-1, with a potential unification bout against Oleksandr Usyk ahead of him – or a long-awaited all-British clash with Anthony Joshua.

“Keep on winning, brother, keep on winning,” Tyson told Reuters. “He’s the lineal champion. He’s the man who beat the man.
“He is heavyweight boxing, period. He is, nobody else.
“Ask anybody except for Usyk: Who is the heavyweight champion? Usyk might even say it’s Fury.
“Keep fighting, make money, stack your money up, and call it a day.”
