Boxing promoter Frank Warren has outlined Tyson Fury's ambitions for 2023 – which includes three blockbuster fights to whet the appetite of fans.
The Gypsy King has an unbeaten record of 33 wins and hopes to start his year by fighting Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk in March. The Saudi Arabia heavyweight unification clash is set smash the record pay-per-view price. Fury is also eyeing an all-British heavyweight clash with Joe Joyce in 2023 at Wembley stadium which the Gypsy King believes will sell-out 90,000 tickets.
Outlining Fury's plans during a column with talkSPORT, Warren expects the unbeaten heavyweight to fight three times during 2023.

“The booming heavyweight division will be featuring strongly in our plans across the next 12 months," wrote Warren. “Top of the to-do list is finalising the undisputed showdown with Oleksandr Usyk that will dominate the spring schedule.
“If Tyson can vanquish the great Ukrainian, then he has said himself that he is eyeing up a big Wembley night with Big Joe Joyce and that is a fight I would love to make and one that would once again break records at the national stadium.
“With Tyson wanting to fight three times this year, there is plenty of scope for huge heavyweight action.”

Who Fury will face in his third fight of 2023 remains undecided and a fourth meeting with Deontay Wilder isn't out of the question.
The Gypsy King has beaten his American rival twice while their first fight ended in a draw. The Bronze Bomber is lining up a final eliminator against Andy Ruiz Jr and the winner will be the mandatory challenge for Fury's WBC heavyweight crown.
However, a keenly anticipated fight between Fury and Anthony Joshua looks unlikely after talks broke down between the camps for a potential fight before Christmas. Fury dubbed his rival a "s***house* and a 'failure to his country' after the heavyweight clash failed to happen last year.
Warren said a fight between the pair in 2023 is unlikely. He added: “No. I’ll tell you why I can’t see it. Tyson’s told me what fights he wants, that’s number one. And number two is they don’t want the fight. They had the chance to make it and we had all that palaver."
First on Fury's wish-list of fights this year is the heavyweight unification fight against Usyk ,which Warren says needs to be arranged quickly if a March date is to be arranged.
“We’ve sent them [Usyk’s team] a draft contract, that’s where we’re at," Warren told talkSPORT Fight Night. “Listen, it’s gotta be sorted out very, very quickly now because the time is against us…
“I want to get the fight on in March and so will Tyson. We just want to get it on in March.”
