Tyson Fury names exact order of his next five fights including stunning Francis Ngannou rematch

Tyson Fury named the exact order of his next five fights.

WBC champion Fury is set to take Ukraine’s Oleksandr Usyk, who holds the WBA, WBO and IBF belts on May 18.

The fight was pushed back from February 17 after Fury suffered a cut to an eye during his Saudi Arabia training camp.

The eagerly anticipated bout in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, will crown the first undisputed heavyweight champion in the four-belt era.

But Fury’s withdrawal led to some fans doubting whether Fury and Usyk would ever fight each other, especially with the Briton nursing a concerning laceration on his right eyelid.

However, Fury is already looking ahead to future fights, including a long-awaited encounter with Anthony Joshua and a potential rematch with Francis Ngannou.

In a video posted on his Instagram, Fury said: “I keep hearing talk that I should retire, or I’m going to retire soon or whatever.

“I ain’t going to retire anyway. I’ve got two fights with Usyk for the undisputed. Twice. Then I’m going to fight AJ (Joshua), at least once, maybe twice if there’s a rematch, if he wants one after the first battering of him.

“And then I’m going to fight Ngannou again. And that’s just a start.

“So there are five fights for you to whet your appetite. I ain’t going nowhere. Nowhere.

“35-year-old in the prime of my life.”

Fury has indicated a fresh eagerness to test himself against Joshua, having last year dismissed the prospect of the fight ever taking place.

Moreover, his willingness to fight Ngannou again could also excite fans given how close their first bout was. Ngannou almost upset the odds when he sent the WBC champion to the canvas with a left hook in the third round and had several other moments of success

That impressive display earned him another huge fight against Joshua in Saudi Arabia on March 8.
