After announcing his retirement after his last fight at the end of April, boxer Tyson Fury has already opened the door to a return to the rings to challenge the winner of the fight between Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua.
What if Tyson Fury finally gets back in the ring? While the Briton had announced his retirement at the end of April, after beating Dillian Whyte by KO at Wembley, the interested party has already hinted that he could fight again… but that he would have to take out the checkbook for that. Indeed, the “Gypsy King” would try to unify the four belts in his category, he who is currently the WBC-The Ring heavyweight champion. Thus, the 33-year-old boxer could challenge Oleksandr Usyk, holder of the IBF-WBA-WBO titles, if the Ukrainian beats before Anthony Joshua in their second confrontation, scheduled for August 20. In any case, that’s what Fury has been implying lately. ” When this middleweight knocks out this bodybuilder again, there will only be one man left to settle this whole circus. What I say to people who want to see this fight is that you’re going to have to have a big checkbook. Because to get the big “Gypsy King” out of retirement to go back to fighting, to once again save the honor of this country, it will be expensive”, initially explained the person concerned.
“I fight for money”
“I’m a prize fighter, I fight for the money. And it’s gonna be expensive if you want me to go on a mission against this guy, this middleweight, to show you what a real heavyweight can do to him. It will be very expensive. They’re going to have to have deep pockets for us to start discussing this. (…) The second fight between Joshua and Usyk must already take place. For the moment, talking about all this is useless, later explained Fury, during the emission The Lowdown, a program in connection with the promoter Frank Warren. If I was ready to fight tomorrow, the two couldn’t because they have to face each other first. We are there. Until then, the ‘Big Mack’ will stay in Morecambe and train like crazy. As a reminder, the Briton had received more than 30 million dollars against Whyte and would therefore like to receive even more for his possible return. The “Gypsy King” even mentioned the sum of half a billion. Ambitious…
