Frank Warren is sitting in a great position in the heavyweight division
The entire boxing community is still talking about the trilogy fight between WBC heavyweight champion Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury (31-0-1, 22ko) and Alabaman power puncher Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder (42-2-1, 41ko). However, Queensberry Promotions head honcho Frank Warren is all smiles when looking at the future of the heavyweight division.
WARREN IS IN A GOOD POSITION
Warren has a reason to be in a very good mood when looking at the rankings in the heavyweight division. Of course, he has the top dog in the heavyweight division in Fury. Additionally, he promotes WBA #1 ranked figher Daniel “Dynamite” Dubois, and WBO #2 “Juggernaut” Joe Joyce. Consequently, Warren has positioned himself to be involved in big championship fights in the heavyweight division in 2022. Fans may not remember, but after dethroning unified champion Wladimir Klitschko back in 2015, Fury had a mental breakdown while dealing with a failed test for cocaine.
The Gypsy King would go on a three-year hiatus. In that time, he blew up to over 300lbs, and he was in a serious depressive mental state. Things started getting so bad that some believed that his career was over. During an interview on iFL TV, Warren expressed how taking a gamble on Tyson Fury has paid off.
“I’ve always liked Tyson, but more importantly, it was good for him, and it was good for me. It worked for me, and it worked for him, and it worked for BT (sports). When I went to BT (Sports), I said, ‘in three or four years, we will have the best boxers.’ We have the best heavyweight on the planet, bar none.”
LOOKING TOWARD THE FUTURE
When looking at the future of the heavyweight division, all roads lead to Warren in one way or the other. The British promoter expressed his excitement when looking at what the company has achieved.
“It’s what we have built up over the last few years…Britain is in a great position…We are in a good spot, and I am pleased where we are at. We’ve done everything we said we would do…We don’t share as much as a lot of people do, but we just carried on with our business, and at the end of the day, we delivered.”
