The ‘Gypsy King’ returns to the ring on Saturday in his first fight since drawing with Deontay Wilder back in December.
Tyson Fury will take on Tom Schwarz in a 12-round heavyweight contest at the MGM Grand in his first ever outing in Las Vegas.
His next fight is also set to take place in America, after he signed a lucrative deal with ESPN to broadcast his fights in the United States.
Fury has fought around the world in his career, having boxed in Canada, Ireland, America and Germany.
But he revealed on Wednesday that he has bigger aspirations for a fight later in his career.
Despite temperatures in Antarctica dropping as low as -60 degrees, Fury told iFL TV that he wanted to take boxing to the polar south.
“Frank, before we go, before I end my career, I want me and you to go to Antarctica and do a fight there,” he said while in conversation with promoter Frank Warren.
“I know there’s a lot of money out there and a lot of oil, and there’s nothing for them to spend it on.
”Emanuel Steward told me that’s a place fighters must go and fight.
“There’s never been a fight there, can you imagine the Gypsy King goes to Antarctica?
“The number one heavyweight on the world goes to Antarctica for a fight (claps hands) we must go there, Frank.”
Many UK-based boxing fans had feared that Fury would take the remainder of his career to America, due to the ESPN deal.
However, promoter Frank Warren dispelled those fears, saying there was no need for him to desert his home country.
“He’s going to have a couple of fights here, that was always the deal,” Warren said.
“That was the idea, to build ‘Brand Tyson’ in the States on the biggest sports channel. That’s what he’s doing, but he’s not deserting the UK.
“Why would he want to do that? That’s where he’s made his name, and that’s where he’s done it.
“This is a big platform, everybody has to come to America, all the big fighters come to America, and that’s why he’s here.”
