The fight is set to take place under boxing rules, with the 35-year-old expected to win comfortably.

Afterwards, fans have been calling for him to take on WBA, WBO and IBF champ Usyk in a clash for the undisputed heavyweight world titles, but Fury does not seem interested.

“Has it ever been my priority? Did I ever say I wanted undisputed?” Fury told Fight Hub TV.

“It’s always been some other little b****’s dream.

“If he takes a small percentage we might make it happen. But if he wants a large bag I’m gonna say, ‘No thank you’…

“I think Francis Ngannou is gonna be a tougher challenge than these other guys. These other guys are just boxers, this guy’s more than that.”

Instead, Fury wants to try his hand at MMA and fight either Ngannou or UFC heavyweight champ Jon Jones in the octagon.

“I’d like to fight Ngannou in the cage,” Fury said. “I think I can beat him for sure.

“He’s not a good wrestler, he’s known for striking and I’m a better striker than him.

“In little gloves, I’d knock him out in seconds.

“I’d fight Jon Jones also in the cage, if the money was right.”

And speaking to The Sun, Fury revealed that he had received an offer from the UFC’s parent company WME-IMG over a potential fight against ‘Bones’.

He remarked: “That’s 100 per cent true [that I received an offer to fight Jones].

“I’ve had an offer from the UFC, from [WME] IMG, to fight Jon Jones.”
