Canadian Yvon Michel, the main promoter of Colombian heavyweight contender Oscar Rivas (26-1-0, 18 KO), believes that his player would be an excellent opponent for the WBC champion, Briton Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KO), intending to compete in December.
“Oscar is fit and ready to fight. He is ranked 8th on the WBC rankings, so he would gladly take up the challenge,” Michelle told Sky Sports. “I think Oscar would be the logical choice to defend Fury in December. We know he loves challenges.
Fury has had the best history for a champion-turned-heavyweight fighter, and I’m sure he’s heard of Oscar Rivas. It would be fun to see my boyfriend beat Dillian White in the title race. “
