Tyson Fury deal with ESPN casts doubt over whole heavyweight division

Warren said the new deal heralded "something special" for Fury.

Lineal champion Tyson Fury sent a curveball to the heavyweight division on Monday by joining promoter Frank Warren of Queensberry Promotions in announcing a multi-year partnership with ESPN and Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum's Top Rank. Even if it doesn't get to a purse bid, it provides Fury's side leverage to push the talks forward. Nevertheless, bankrolled as his ESPN deal is by the enormous financial resources of the Disney empire, Warren says: 'Wilder and Joshua will have to decide if they want the much bigger purses which will be on offer now. The priority for the WBC is boxing and the fans, over television rivalry'.

The £80million was an offer too good for Tyson Fury to refuse, but it remains to be seen if it comes at the cost of world heavyweight title fights against Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua.

When duBoef watched Fury's interview on the "Joe Rogan Experience" podcast past year, he was fascinated and determined to work a deal to sign him to a promotional agreement. In reality, the amount Fury earns will fluctuate based on the quality of his opponents and the amount that broadcasters are willing to pay for rights to his biggest fights.

But Fury, Wilder and IBF, WBA and WBO champion Anthony Joshua now work with rival United States broadcasters, making future negotiations arguably more hard.

Warren stated an announcement on Fury's next fight would be made in due course and said of the Wilder rematch: 'Tyson wants it, we all want it, and now we've got to make it happen. Fury spoke to The Sun recently, and was asked about Joshua's fight against Miller. At the post-fight news conference, Fury led media singing the Don McLean song, "American Pie".
