Tyson Fury in talks with unbeaten heavyweight Demsey McKean over fight in Australia

“If Tyson Fury wants to fight in Australia, the logical option is to fight an Aussie fighter, and talking to Fury’s people, they don’t want to fight a small heavyweight. Demsey and Justis [Huni] are Australia’s best heavyweights, but Demsey is 6ft 6in and – being a southpaw – he would present a real test for Tyson.

“We’ve been given a possible date to fight Fury in August, so hopefully we can make it happen […] Demsey has said, ‘Let’s make this fight happen.’ For Demsey to get the chance to jump in the ring with Tyson Fury, it would be the biggest fight in Australian history […] This would be a dream come true, all the greatest heavyweights are chasing Fury; Anthony Joshua, Usyk, Andy Ruiz, Deontay Wilder – they all would love a piece of Fury.

“Demsey is unbeaten and he is awkward enough to give any heavyweight problems. Being a southpaw makes him tricky to fight, and he has the youth and hunger to be competitive against Fury. Tyson cannot underestimate Demsey, because he has the size and power to pull off an upset.”

McKean, 32, has a professional record of 22-0 (14 knockouts) and was linked with Anthony Joshua earlier this year.


The Briton, however, went on to fight Jermaine Franklin instead. Joshua outpointed the American in London in April.
