Tyson Fury explains why he will ‘probably’ fight Jon Jones instead of Oleksandr Usyk next

“He’s just a foreign person who doesn’t speak good English, so you can’t really sell [a fight with] him. I am looking for probably another American. Probably looking to fight Jon Jones in a boxing fight.”

Fury, 35, last fought in December, defeating Derek Chisora for the third time to retain the WBC belt and stay unbeaten. Meanwhile, 36-year-old Usyk most recently boxed in August, defeating Daniel Dubois to also stay unbeaten and retain his titles.

Ngannou, 37, has not fought since retaining the UFC heavyweight title against Ciryl Gane in January 2022. He then left the promotion and relinquished the belt this January. American Jones, 36, beat Gane to win the vacant title in March, and he is set to defend it against Stipe Miocic in November.
