Bob Arum, co-promoter of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KO), has named another candidate for the fight with his ward.
According to Arum, this is French ex-challenger Carlos Takam (39-5-1, 28 KO), who is also a Top Rank fighter.
“Tyson is choosing right now. Not sure if we’ll do it on ESPN given the football schedule. But until I have an opponent’s name, I’m not going to ESPN.
I’m not going to play with you. Fury will beat Takama, but he is at least famous and has performed on ESPN. And he looked good in his last fight, “said Arum.
Recall that in his last performance in December, Takam outboxed American Jesse Forrest (26-4-0, 20 KO) after ten rounds, making his debut in the promotion.
