LUCAS BROWNE is ‘more than willing’ to welcome Tyson Fury back to the UK in December amid the Deontay Wilder trilogy facing the axe.
Fury has grown frustrated waiting for a date to face Wilder for a third time, and has announced his plan to move on from the immediate rematch.
With UK promoter Frank Warren under instructions to find the WBC champion an opponent for the end of the year, Browne has thrown his name into the hat.
He said on Twitter: “Wake up this morning to the awesome news that Tyson Fury is possibly looking at myself as the number one candidate for a fight in December.
“The Fury and Wilder fight is no longer happening and he wants some kind of warm up fight for the Joshua fight.
“Now, if that is me, I’d be more than willing to jump in, it would be an absolute honour to jump in the ring with the Gypsy King, who I believe is one of the best heavyweights on the planet at the moment.
“In saying that, wouldn’t it be awesome for me to knock him out and have all these fans hate me at the same time. That’s something I’d love to happen.
“As I said, it would be an absolute honour to share the ring with him, I would be going in there to knock him out, that would be the plan.
“I could be losing 11 rounds and still knock you out with one punch in the 12th and that’s why I am always going to be dangerous no matter what.”
Browne, 41, continued: “Tyson Fury, thank you very much for the consideration, I do hope it comes off.
“I am training and waiting for a fight. Covid has obviously put a stop to a lot of things at the moment and hopefully this could be something that really changes my life as well.”
The humble call out follows news Fury, 32, is ready to move on from a trilogy bout against Wilder, 34, having dethroned the American in February.
They had been set to fight once more before the year’s out, but with the coronavirus pandemic preventing live crowds, it has so far failed to materialise.
Wilder did enact his right to a contractual rematch, but the delay may force the stipulation to expire.
Fury has already agreed a two-fight deal with unified champion Anthony Joshua, 30, who faces Kubrat Pulev, 39, in December.
The Gypsy King wants a homecoming the same month before focussing his plans on an undisputed title decider with AJ.
But, SunSport understands neither Fury nor Wilder has informed the WBC of any plans to cancel their third showdown.
Fury and WBC boss Maurico Sulaiman appear to have a close friendship, following emotional meetings in the ring after each Wilder clash.
Wilder’s co-promoter Al Haymon also appears to have a close working relationship with the organisation, with a number of his high-profile talents holding their honours.
