Tyson’s return to the ring is said to be in April 2018 according to his trainer Peter Fury. But who will he fight? Is it Shannon Briggs.
Shannon Briggs has been tring to get a fight with a big name for years, he chased Klitschko around the world for years trying to secure a fight. Now he is targeting Tyson Fury. Tyson and Shannon met briefly where Briggs expressed how he would knock the ex unified champion out. This fight isn’t a bad choice for Tyson as it may be a decent test for him and Briggs could possibly have one last chance to fight a world class opponent.
Another option is David Price. Price has recently expressed that he is the last person to have beaten the ‘Gypsy King’. Tyson has said that this is true and that he would like the fight. Price isn’t world class, and if he beats Tyson I don’t see him getting a world title shot anytime soon. If Tyson wins then it doesn’t prove much. I think Tyson would be likely to win this bout but it doesn’t prove he deserves a title shot with the likes of Wilder or Joshua.
