Tyson Fury has announced that his return to the ring will now come in 2021 and not in December of this year. The WBC heavyweight champion was expected to face Agit Kabayel in the first defence of the belt he won back in February against Deontay Wilder in their rematch in Vegas.

    It is unclear at this stage if Fury will now meet Kabayel in the early stages of 2021 or if the third instalment of the British boxer’s trilogy with Wilder is now back on the table. The latter would give Fury the opportunity to prove his excellent result against the Bronze Bomber was no fluke.

    Fury, who appeared in the WWE in 2019, beating Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel, remains unbeaten as a professional boxer, just like his record as a wrestler. He has proved that he is a very versatile athlete and he is very popular, not just in the boxing world, but also with wrestling and MMA fans.

    Fury Has Eyes on Anthony Joshua

    The Gypsy King has made no secret about his desire to fight Anthony Joshua, who holds the WBA, WBO and IBF belts in the heavyweight division. A clash between the two British boxers would be huge and could create the first undisputed heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis in 2000.

    Joshua is set to meet Kubrat Pulev next month where all three of his belts will be on the line. AJ is the long odds-on favorite in the boxing betting at -1200 to prevail and retain his titles, which would keep any hope of a unification contest with Fury alive for 2021.

    A fight between Fury and Joshua could take place at Wembley Stadium in London. Joshua has fought at the national soccer stadium before, with upwards of 80,000 spectators inside. Talks between the boxers’ promoters have already taken place as a fight of this size is likely to take a lot of organizing.

    Return to the WWE?

    Although Fury is at the top of his sport right now, a return to the WWE should not be ruled out. He teased us back in the summer when he called out WWE champion Drew McIntyre.

    Fury is a big WWE fan and he enjoyed being part of one of their storylines last year. There are lots of wrestlers who would be perfect for a feud with the boxer, including King Corbyn, Seth Rollins and Randy Orton.

    Those in the WWE who worked with Fury before his contest at the Crown Jewel pay-per-view were very impressed with the skills he showed and how quick he was to learn new moves. The WWE may look to try and sign up Fury for a future WrestleMania event. He would not be the first boxer to appear on ‘The Grandest Stage of Them All”.

    Fingers crossed we do see Fury in the WWE again, and who knows, the next time we do, he may be the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.
