WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has drawn out a hitlist of four fighters he wants to conquer before retiring from boxing. The Gypsy King is eyeing some monumental encounters over the next couple of years ahead of his trilogy fight against Deontay Wilder next month.
Wilder will look to avenge his defeat against Fury last time out when the two behemoths face off at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on October 9.
After defeating Wilder via TKO in February, Fury pushed for a fight against WBA, IBF and WBO champion Anthony Joshua.
But the Bronze Bomber scuppered those plans by demanding the contracted third showdown with Fury.
The Brit is still confident of a bout against Joshua but expects it to come no earlier than 2022 with another opponent in his sights later this year.

Fury recently outlined a star-studded hitlist he wants to get through before hanging up his boxing gloves for good, starting with Wilder.
He told BT Sport: “I have a bucket list and my next four fights. I am going to have a December fight because Joshua won’t happen then.
“It is Wilder on October 9, Whyte in December in a stadium, and I will shut him up.
“Then Joshua in March in Saudi Arabia and then a rematch back here in Wembley.

“Then I will fight Chisora in my fifth and final fight. It’s been a long time since I boxed here, and I want to do a stadium fight.
“Let’s hope AJ does not start asking for silly money that doesn’t exist because he will lose the fight.
“Wilder on October 9, Whyte in December, AJ in March in Saudi, a rematch in September and then good old Del Boy to finish it off.
“Then I might take two years off and go nuts again and then come back at 37 and do it all again. Because you cannot write me off.”

Fury has been detailed about his fighting plans in the future, with Dillian Whyte in his sights for December.
To finish his career, the 33-year-old wants to then face Joshua not once but twice before squaring off against Derek Chisora – who he has already beaten twice.
He will have to get past Wilder again first, though, with the American currently a thorn in his plans.
