Tyson Fury Reveals His Next Five Opponents In Star-Studded 'Wish List'

Tyson Fury is going to be a busy, busy boy for the next few years.

The heavyweight world champion has opened up on his two-year "bucket list", revealing who his next five opponents are going to be.

33-year-old Fury, who is arguably the biggest draw in boxing at the moment, is set to take on Deontay Wilder next month in a highly-anticipated trilogy.

But while the Gypsy King's focus remains solely on putting his rivalry with Wilder to bed with another impressive performance, it seems the British fan favourite can't help but think about the future.

Fury has now laid out his two-year plan, revealing which fighters he hopes to get his hands on next.

"I've got my next four fights lined up," Fury told BT Sport.

"Bang, bang, bang, bang, bang!

"I'm going to destroy Wilder in October, first time Frank's heard it, then I'm going to take a fight in December because of Dilian Whyte because I don't think the Joshua fight is going to happen in December, is it Frank? February-March.

"So where's my bucket list?

"I'm going to fight Wilder on October 9th, I'll fight Dilian Whyte back here in the UK for the first time in years at a stadium up here in the north or something in December. Let's get a date December, I'll shop that one right up. That'll be an easy one. And then I'll fight Joshua in March, if it's in Saudi Arabia, let's do it. And then we can have a re-match in the summer back here at Wembley. And then I'll go out in my last fifth fight, in however long, two years and I'll fight Derek Chisora.

"That's five fights.

"Then I'll take two years out of the ring, just going absolutely nuts again Frank and I'll come back at 37 and wipe the floor with whoever's next because it'll take two years to build someone up."

The current batch of heavyweights have given a new lease of life to a legendary division that had become stale.

Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder, Dilian Whyte , Andy Ruiz, Joseph Parker, Oleksandr Usyk and - of course - Fury himself are all vying to be the greatest of their generation.

But given the amount of times us fans have been let down with breakdowns during blockbuster bout negotiations, Fury is well aware that talk is cheap within the boxing world.

"That (his wish list) may seem ridiculous, but considering that I said was going to be world heavyweight champion when I was seven years old and I said every single thing I was ever going to do and did it, you cannot write me off at all," he added.

"You have to believe what I'm saying."
