Fury calls up journeyman to win the only title he has eluded

Tyson Fury has challenged Chris Healey, a journeyman who has a professional record of 9-12 and holds the Central Area heavyweight title.

Fury is in talks to fight Derek Chisora ​​in December after a bout with Anthony Joshua fell through, but the WBC champ’s focus seems divided.

In an Instagram Story on Wednesday (October 12), the Briton said from his gym: “I’ve won every single belt in boxing save one belt and that belt is the UK’s Central Region heavyweight championship.

“So I’m calling out whoever is the Central Area Heavyweight Champion,” Fury continued while laughter erupted in the background. “I’m calling you out because that’s my belt! I want it! I do not have it! It’s the only belt I haven’t won yet and I want it. I come for whoever you are Come on!”

The title is held by Healey, 34, who has lost his last four straight fights and been stopped in two of them. The knockout/TKO losses in this run came against rising heavyweights David Adeleye and Fabio Wardley.

Fury last competed in April, knocking out Dillian Whyte in the sixth round at London’s Wembley Stadium to retain the WBC heavyweight title.

After compatriot Joshua lost on points to Oleksandr Usyk in August – for the second time in 11 months – and failed to recapture the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO titles, a mega-fight with Fury seemed to be elusive forever. However, Fury, 34, then offered Joshua, 32, a shot at the WBC gold.

Negotiations eventually collapsed and Fury is now expected to fight 38-year-old Chisora ​​on December 3, whom he has already beaten twice.
