Top Rank chairman Bob Arum has revealed Tyson Fury could face Kubrat Pulev in 2020 for the undisputed heavyweight crown.
Fury faces Deontay Wilder on February 22nd for the WBC strap.
Pulev faces Anthony Joshua for other belts on offer.
“The contract now says that the loser of the fight (Wilder vs Fury II) can demand a third fight, but he has to then take forty per cent,” Arum explained on The AK and Barak Show via Sirius XM Radio. “The winner of the second fight gets 60%. But it’s up to the loser to pull the plug for the (second (rematch),” Arum stressed.
Asked whether if Fury does beat Wilder he would be looking to fight Anthony Joshua next, Arum said Pulev, secondly, would put an end to those thoughts. The Hall of Famer stated: “If Wilder, in that case being the loser, decides to go in another direction. Then absolutely Fury will be fighting Pulev, who will have knocked out Anthony Joshua.”
