He added: “He has nothing more to prove. I got this opportunity on July 2 to put this exhibition bout on, and you have got to keep setting yourself goals… There is Anthony Joshua, Oleksandr Usyk. Tyson has proved he is number one but them two, everyone is saying ‘who would win out of the three of them’ and I don’t think Tyson will want to retire until he ticks both of them boxes.”

As Hatton mentioned, he will make a return to the ring later this year for an exhibition fight with Marco Antonio Barrera, an avenue Fury admitted he could follow against UFC legend Francis Ngannou. With Ngannou ringside, the Gypsy King revealed last Saturday: “I will not rule out exhibitions for sure, Big Francis Ngannou was here today, he’s on my hit list in an exhibition fight, either in a cage, in a boxing ring, boxing gloves, UFC gloves, we can make it happen.”
