Tyson Fury’s camp is in talks about a possible £ 15m battle against unannounced Australian Jai Opetaia.
Fury promoter Bob Arum claims that initial negotiations for the WBC champion have taken place to face Opetaia in Sydney next year.
This is despite the fact that Deontay Wilder has already issued its rematch clause to start a trilogy fight in the summer.
The encounter with the Gypsy King would be a big class increase for Opetaia, who is unbeaten in cruiserweight with 19 wins in a row.
According to the Australian Daily Telegraph, Fury would collect an astronomical £ 15 million from the fight at Bankwest Stadium.
Arum told the Sun Herald: “He would like to come; We love to fight in different places.
“It is very exciting for me. What we’re talking about is sometime in 2021.
“That would be a big event, especially if we could stage it on a Sunday morning because it would be prime time in the United States.
“I had a tremendous experience in Australia for this Jeff Horn fight. I am very open to seeing you again. “
Fury’s last appearance in February made him knock out Wilder in one of the best heavyweight performances ever.
The 31-year-old dominated from the start and knocked the former champion down twice before Mark Breland threw in the towel to end the competition in round seven.
Wilder, who has blamed his costume for defeat, is confident that he can change things in a third fight.
The bronze bomber said on Instagram: “I’ll get up again. I am strong. I am a king, you cannot bear my pride.
“I am a warrior. I am a king who will never give up. I am a king who will fight to death.
“And if someone doesn’t understand that, doesn’t understand what it’s like to go to war, doesn’t understand what it’s like to fight, we’ll be resurrected.” We will win the title back.
“I will be back. We will keep our heads up. Your king is in great spirit.
“We will rise from the ashes like a phoenix and win back the title.
“We’ll see you in a few months because the war has just started. All my love for all my people.”
