Despite announcing his retirement last week, Tyson Fury's U.S. promoter Bob Arum expects the 34-year-old to come out of retirement following the conclusion on Saturday's world heavyweight championship rematch. 

Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua meet once more the IBF, WBA and WBO world heavyweight titles, and fans will be hoping the winner will then go onto face WBC champion Fury in an undisputed fight. 

Speaking to Sky Sports, Arum believes a fight with the winner of Usyk's rematch with Joshua will be enough to tempt Fury back into the ring. 

"Absolutely - it's really the only fight that makes sense for Tyson Fury," Arum said.

"I've discussed this with my co-promoter of Fury, Frank Warren, and once this fight is over we're going to put together a total unification match between the winner and Tyson Fury.

"Now, if Usyk wins the fight, which I expect, that will be quite easy to do because we're very close to the Usyk people as they're the same people who manage Vasyl Lomachenko who fights for us.

"If Joshua wins, Eddie Hearn is his promoter. We've talked many times with Hearn about various matches and I'm sure we'll be able to come together on this one."
