Tyson Fury unconcerned by next opponent

Tyson Fury admits that the opponent for his next world title fight will be decided by whoever is "available".

The Gypsy King is waiting for his next fight after beating Deontay Wilder to retain the WBC heavyweight belt last month but he admits that he is not sure who it will be against - with Dillian Whyte viewed as the favourite.

Fury told Sky Sports: "I'm just chilling, enjoying life, taking one day at a time, and enjoying myself.

"I'm not really interested, because to be honest it doesn't really make much sense who I want to fight at this moment.

"It's who's available and what makes sense later on."

Fury's US promoter Bob Arum wants to see the fighter take on Oleksandr Usyk in his next bout and believes the winner could then face Anthony Joshua.

He said: "The alternative is that if Joshua decides not to exercise his rematch against Usyk and decides to step aside, the fight we would like to make is between Usyk and Fury.

"That is a fight to unify the titles once and for all.

"Then Joshua can fight the winner of the undisputed fight.

"Whyte can stand in line and fight the winner ultimately.

"That's what Tyson would like. And I represent Tyson. That is his preference.

"If they want to fight each other, which I believe they do? I would facilitate it."

Whyte is desperate to clash with Fury in a world title bout and doesn't care when or where it takes place.

He said: "Wherever they want the fight, whenever they want the fight, I don't care.

"I've been trying to fight him for a long time. I've been ready to fight him for a long time. I just want to fight him for the world title now."
