"As you can see he's still got a bit of weight to lose, you can see he needs the rounds and we just have to step up the opponents each time. The name of the game now is to find an opponent. We keep moving onward and keep moving forwards and the objective is to get him into contention to fight for the world title as soon as possible."
So as soon as possible not before the end of the year, Tyson.
Interestingly, Warren brought up a very familiar name with the audience as to a potential target. "Tony Bellew absolutely, we'd go for that before the end of the year - not a problem. The name of the game is to get the fights in, then by the end of the year be in a position for a big, big fight."
Now there are mechanics behind this potential bout which I have alluded to already, and do so whenever a Matchroom or Frank Warren fighter are mentioned in the same breath. Politics ... The two simply do not do business together and have not done so in living memory. So the two would need to come to some sort of arrangement in order to so. One thinks that a potential matchup with Anthony Joshua could be used as leverage. With Hearn allowing Bellew to box on BT Sport and if Fury is successful then he could box Joshua on Sky Sports Box Office. But that is merely the rumblings of this journalists mind of course.
Despite the belief in casual fandom, Tony Bellew would pose a variety of problems for Fury. Yes, Fury's size would be an issue. But Bellew has a very underrated boxing ability, that much was evidenced in his bouts with David Haye. Bellew was able to back Haye up with a double jab, forcing weight to go on Haye's suspect leg, meaning Haye couldn't load up as he normally would do on counter attempts. And the finishing shots? All shots Haye could not see. Like him or not, that was smart boxing! Bellew has remained active and Fury still has plenty of work to do. If I were Fury's team id actually think twice about it!
Speaking of Liverpudlian heavyweights, David Price, who was on commentary for Radio5Live also threw his hat into the ring. Claiming Fury needed to lose '15 or 20lbs' and 'looked slow on his feet.' and offered himself as a potential opponent. Price beat Fury in the amateurs, the latter describing Price as the 'Hardest puncher he'd ever faced'
Fury indicated he needed to face a taller boxer to prepare for the premier division's big guns.
"I want someone big. Small ones, I don't like. Joshua and Wilder are over 6ft 5in so I have to prepare for people like that.
"I felt good today, I felt fit, I didn't feel sluggish, so even if I take another stone off I'll just be even better. And taking a stone off is pretty easy - that's just sleeping a few nights."
So there we have it. Two names in the hat, but something tells me we are unlikely to see either in the ring with Fury in the short term and beyond.
