Tyson Fury has told boxing fans they can expect to see “the biggest year of my career” in 2023.

The WBC world heavyweight champion will line up WBA, IBF and WBO king Oleksandr Usyk for an upcoming undisputed showdown, with Britain’s top contender Joe Joyce also in his sights.

On Saturday night, Fury dispatched old nemesis Derek Chisora ​​as planned.

He then called out Usyk and Joyce in an entertaining confrontation during his post-fight interview.

An hour later, with all the bluster and insults aside, Fury spoke openly about the couple at his press conference.

“We hope to see the biggest year of my career,” said the Gypsy King.

“2023, we are going to have the big fights that the fans really dream of.

“First, let’s talk about Usyk.

“I’m ready, I’m ready to face Usyk next – whether it’s in Saudi Arabia or here in the UK. Both locations will be fantastic.

“And let’s give the fans a champion, a name, a face. Usyk is ready for the challenge. He came tonight, so fair play with him.

“He’s not an easy-to-understand boxer, he’s a skilled southpaw with very good skills, Olympic gold medalist.

“And he’s coming in good shape, so I’m really looking forward to the challenge.”

“Yeah, so let’s do it. I am disposed. Usyk looks like he’s ready.

“Let’s go like Donkey Kong…

“I have a good feeling that this one is going to happen.

“But if that’s not the case for X, Y or Z reasons, then we’ll also have Joe Joyce at Wembley next year.

“But provided the Usyk one happens, then I will and then I’ll also have Joe Joyce at Wembley, why not?”
