Tyson Fury ready for 90,000 Wembley sellout against Joe Joyce NEXT if undisputed fight with Oleksandr Usyk collapses | The Sun

TYSON FURY is ready for a 90,000 Wembley sellout against Joe Joyce if his undisputed super-fight with Oleksandr Usyk collapses.

Usyk was joined by Joyce ringside at Tottenham's stadium as Fury dominated Derek Chisora over ten rounds.


And it has perfectly set up the heavyweight division's first four-belt unification bout next year.

But Fury is lining up fellow unbeaten Brit Joyce, 37, as a backup should talks with Usyk, 35, be KO'd.

He told Sky Sports: "There's plenty more to come. Let me say there's a lot of big fights to happen next year.

"I said if Usyk can't be made early next year, we'll take Joe Joyce at Wembley and sell out another 90,000 tickets here in the UK, the capital of sports entertainment in the world."

Usyk's promoter revealed before Fury's one-sided win in North London that a deal was in place between the two camps.

And although Saudi Arabia is a frontrunner to prise the pair of undefeated stars over to the Middle East, the UK has not been ruled out.

Fury, 34, said: "We're going to get those big fights. First of all let's talk about Usyk.

"Before everyone wanted to ask me a million questions about Usyk when I had Chisora to beat.

"As we've seen, Chisora's no easy pushover for anybody. I'm ready and willing to take on Usyk next, whether it's in Saudi Arabia or back here in the UK.

"Let's give the fans one champion, one name, one face. Usyk's up for the challenge. He came over tonight so fair play to him.

He's not an easy boxer to figure out – he's a slick, southpaw mover, with very good skills, Olympic gold medallist and he comes in good form.

"So I'm really looking forward to the challenge."
