Tyson Fury will ‘go where the money is’ amid Oleksandr Usyk fight talks… and will even do it in Derek Chisora’s GARDEN
TYSON FURY admitted he will “go where the money is” against Oleksandr Usyk… and will even do the fight in Derek Chisora’s GARDEN.
The unbeaten champions have been negotiating the heavyweight division’s first four-belt undisputed decider since the new year.

Saudi Arabia emerged as a frontrunner to host with the prospect of tabling mega-millions to prise the pair over.
But Fury’s US promoter Bob Arum has also talked up the chance of the historic unification landing at Wembley.
But the man himself told talkSPORT: “I’m a prizefighter. I go where the money is.
“If it’s in Saudi Arabia, if it’s in Hong Kong, or if it’s in Derek’s back garden.
“I go for the money. That’s what I do. I go in, get my brains beat out of me for a few quid.
“And it becomes obsessive, the old prize fighting game, and that’s why it’s difficult to walk away.”
Arum had hoped to announce the date and location for the blockbuster title fight this week.
And the Hall of Famer was in London to watch as Artur Beterbiev, 38, beat Anthony Yarde, 31, in a light-heavyweight thriller.

Arum took a ringside seat at Wembley Arena with Fury, who admitted he was in the dark about his next fight.
He told Sky Sports: “I’m fantastic. I’ve had a good Christmas and New Year. I’ve been training and we’re just waiting on an announcement.
“I’m in limbo like the rest of the world. I’m not interested in who, what, where or when. I just want to fight and that’s it.”
