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.

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.

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.
