Frank Warren and Lineal Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury (27-0-1) have announced a multi-year, multi-fight agreement with ESPN, BT Sport, and Bob Arum’s Top Rank Boxing.
The deal will see 'The Gypsy King' Tyson Fury backed by two broadcast powerhouses in ESPN and BT Sport. Frank Warren will be working alongside Bob Arum to cement Fury’s place as one of boxing’s biggest global stars.
The deal will see the Mancunian feature regularly in the US, live on BT Sport in the UK and ESPN in the US.
Fury said: “I’m delighted that Frank and Queensberry Promotions have teamed up with Top Rank to promote my fights in America.
"With ESPN and BT Sport behind me, the biggest sports platforms in the world are now linked up with the best heavyweight in the world!”
Hall of Fame boxing promoter Frank Warren said: “This is a great move for Tyson Fury and a great move for Queensberry Promotions.
"By partnering up with ESPN and Top Rank in America, we’re giving Tyson the opportunity to perform on the biggest and most powerful platforms on both sides of the Atlantic and become a truly global star.”
