Boxing Star Tyson Fury Signs New Promotional Deal With Top Rank on ESPN
Tyson Fury and Hall of Fame promoter Frank Warren are joining forces with Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum’s Top Rank. The agreement will mean that Fury will be a headline part of the boxing lineup under the historic, long-term Top Rank on ESPN relationship.
Since announcing the Top Rank on ESPN agreement in 2017, and expanding it in August 2018, the comprehensive alliance has showcased blockbuster Top Rank fights and content across ESPN networks and ESPN+.
All the parties will work closely to set and announce the details of Fury’s debut soon.
BT Sport will continue to be the television home in the United Kingdom for all of Fury’s fights.
Top Rank, Fury’s management team MTK Global, and Queensberry Promotions, worked seamlessly to close the groundbreaking deal.
“Top Rank is very excited to enter into the promotional arrangement along with Queensberry Promotions for the lineal heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury,” says Arum. “He is a generational heavyweight talent at the peak of his powers. We also look forward to our growing relationship with MTK Global, which represents so many world-class fighters.”
“I’m delighted that Frank and Queensberry Promotions have teamed up with Top Rank to promote my fights in America,” says Fury. “With ESPN and BT Sport behind me, the biggest sports platforms in the world are now linked up with the best heavyweight in the world!”
“This is a great move for Tyson Fury and a great move for Queensberry Promotions,” says Warren. “By partnering with ESPN and Top Rank in America, we’re giving our boxers, including Tyson, the opportunity to perform on the biggest and most powerful platforms on both sides of the Atlantic and become truly global stars.”
“MTK Global are thrilled to have played a role in what can only be described as a monumental partnership, no doubt the biggest one in the boxing industry, and we’re looking forward to working more closely with the teams at Top Rank and ESPN well into the future,” says Sandra Vaughan, CEO MTK Global.
