Tyson Fury's team open door to biggest tournament in boxing history involving Anthony Joshua | The SunApril 14, 2023
TYSON FURY'S team have opened the door to a sensational four-man tournament involving the heavyweight division's biggest stars.
TalkSPORT's outspoken sports pundit Simon Jordan claimed Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder, Oleksandr Usyk and Fury would be involved in a series of fights.
It would see AJ face Wilder with Fury against Usyk, both in December in Saudi Arabia, allowing the winners to meet in a final.
George Warren, the son of Fury's UK promoter Frank, has not ruled out the stunning idea but admitted no talks have yet materialised.
He told iFL TV: “It would be amazing, wouldn’t it? But it’s speculation at the moment.
"As far as I’m concerned, we’ve not had any formal offer or communication that is something that is there to be done.

"What we always say, we get a lot of attention and interest for Tyson, not just from UK opportunities but from around the world.
“When people get in touch, the usual way we deal with it is just to say, ‘Great, put an offer down, put it in writing. Send us some date options, tell us what the plan is and what you’re looking at doing, the finances involved and we can go through there and address it as a team.'
“Tyson is the decision-maker, but certainly, if there’s an opportunity, we’re happy to look at it.
Warren added: "At this moment in time, we've not had an offer for anything.

"But if one was to come in, it will remain private, it would be discussed, and we’ll go from there."
Joshua, 33, beat Jermaine Franklin, 29, on points over 12 rounds in his return fight at the start of April.
Wilder, 37, meanwhile has been out since October when he knocked out Robert Helenius, 39, in round one of his comeback bout.
Fury, 34, is now without an opponent after his deal to unify all four belts with Usyk, 36, collapsed.
Terms were scrapped amid a row over financials for a potential rematch, leaving both in the lurch.
Tyson is the decision-maker, but certainly, if there’s an opportunity, we’re happy to look at it.
Usyk has since been ordered into a mandatory WBA title defence against Daniel Dubois, 25, with talks ongoing.
And Fury is left to seal a return fight in the summer, which promoter Bob Arum revealed could be against Andy Ruiz Jr, 33.
And Warren added: “Andy Ruiz stopped Anthony Joshua, is a former world champion.
"I don’t think the performance in the rematch when he fought out in Saudi Arabia was Andy Ruiz’s best performance, but he’s had solid wins since then.
“I’m not focusing on who the opponent is at the moment for Tyson. The first step is to speak with Tyson, which we’ll do next week.
"We’ll find out what he wants to do. Does he want to be active? Does he want to fight? Does he want to do a UK stadium fight?
“If he does, then again, we’ll assess who is available and look at all the different opponents and anyone that wants to fight Tyson.
