WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) has expressed his intentions for his next match to be against Australian boxer Dempsey McKean (22-0, 14 KOs).
Fury mentioned that ongoing discussions are taking place to coordinate this fight. He has praised McKean, referring to him as one of the division's front-runners.
"McKean’s a top ten heavyweight and definitely one of the frontrunners. If the Oleksandr Usyk fight is happening it'd be great preparation because he's southpaw also," Fury remarked.
Thus, Fury has indicated his interest in battling McKean, viewing it as a crucial step in his preparation for a potential match against Oleksandr Usyk. Further details regarding this prospective bout are anticipated to be finalized soon.
