Tyson Fury interested in making the fight Savannah Marshall for ‘cross-gender’ clash; He gives reason

Speaking on IFL TVI, as quoted by Metro: I’m not really interested in fighting Joe Joyce.”

“I’m probably looking at someone like Savannah Marshall to fight in a cross-gender heavyweight championship match-up.”

“That is more interesting to me. I really do rate Savannah as a fighter, I think she’s an unbelievable fighter and I’d be really interested in making the fight to be honest.”

‘She’s a big girl and a super-middleweight I think, so I’d come down to like 17st from 20 and she could come up from like 12st or something and do a cross-gender fight… I’m being serious.’

Asked if the red-tape around a proposed meeting with Whyte had frustrated him, Fury added: ‘I’m not bothered, I’m enjoying myself on a daily basis.

“But I’ll be looking forward to that fight with Savannah if Usyk and Joshua don’t happen.
