Tyson Fury makes Amir Khan joke following Deontay Wilder setback

Tyson Fury says he is planning to have an interim fight before eventually taking on Deontay Wilder in a rematch later this year-even joking that he’d take on Amir Khan.

Asked if he will fight someone else now, Fury told iFL TV: “Yeah, I’m going to have another fight in between and then I’m going to deal with Deontay the bronze silly c**t. Excuse my French.”

Pressed on who he would fight, he joked: “Amir Khan. Yeah I think I’m fighting Amir Khan. He’s moving up to heavyweight.”

On a more serious note, he continued: “Take your pick, there’s hundreds of them isn’t there. You know what, I might give Sefer Seferi a rematch because he was a nice guy and he got injured in his last fight, so I might give him a rematch.”
