​Tyson Fury Is Eyeing Up September Return For Clash With 'Prince' Charles Martin

Promoter Bob Arum has revealed that Tyson Fury could make his return to the boxing ring in September against one of Anthony Joshua's KO'd victims, Charles Martin.

The superstar Brit, 30, picked up a stunning TKO victory over German unknown Tom Schwarz in June and wants one more fight before the end of 2019.

But Top Rank founder and CEO Arum, 87, has told the Athletic that Fury's 5th October return in New York City could be pushed forward to 14th or 21st September in Las Vegas instead.

And Martin, 33, is now being eyed up for the fight with the 'Gypsy King' ahead of Jarrell Miller, 31.

The 'Prince' clashed with 'AJ,' 29, in London back in 2016 and the Brit produced a superb second-round KO to strip him of the IBF heavyweight title.

Martin has bounced back from his defeat to the former heavyweight champ by picking up four victories and one loss in his last five fights.

Fury wants to lockdown his next opponent before he reignites his heated rivalry with Deontay Wilder ahead of their proposed rematch in early 2020.

According to the 'Gypsy King,' his hotly anticipated clash with the WBC champ, 33, is slated to take place on 22nd February.

But an official announcement for the rematch has not been made.

Fury told The Lateish Show with Mo Gilligan last week that Wilder doesn't stand a chance against him in the rematch, mainly for his recovery from mental health issues and battle with alcohol addiction and drug abuse.

"I'm not gonna take any credit away from Wilder, he's a great champion and he's a top puncher," he said.

"But if he can't beat a man who had three years out of the ring, drug and alcohol addiction and mental health problems, then how the f**k is he going to beat me now?"
