Tyson Furious Search for an opponent turns to Collie Barrett

August 15 Jonny Stapleton

Tyson Fury’s search for an opponent for his purposed Belfast ‘homecoming’ continues after  Eddie Hearn confirmed Mike Perez will be appearing on the under card of Paul McCloskey’s world title eliminator with Bredis Prescott.

The Cuban Rebel was offered a shot at the British and Commonwealth champion this week, but seems to have turned the fight down in favour of a clash in the Odyssey Arena just 7 days earlier.

The winner of Prizefighter the internationals joined Martin Rogan in rejecting Fury’s advances and the Manchester based big man will now  turn his attention to Irish champion Coleman Barrett.

Team Fury contacted www.irish-boxing.com in a bid to make contact with the cousin of former Irish Olympian Francie Barrett having read the following the story

It now seems Fury might get the chance to add the Irish strap to his British and Commonwealth crowns.
