Fury Would Retire If He Thought He Couldn’t Beat Wilder
Tyson Fury insists that pride and not money is what motivates him as he heads towards a fight against Deontay Wilder this November in Las Vegas.
Fury cruised to victory against Francesco Pianeta on Saturday in Belfast, and would go face to face with Wilder setting their showdown in stone.
“I’m not going into this for a pay check. I wouldn’t lose for £100 million; you can’t pay any amount of money for me to go to Vegas to get sparked out,” he said.
“If I didn’t believe I could win I’d pack up and retire. I don’t box to be second best or to make the numbers up, I box to be the best I can be… I’ll go to Vegas for free and fight Wilder. I’d rather have no money and win than £200 billion and lose.
This will be the second fight of 2018 for Wilder who knocked out undefeated Luis Ortiz at Barclays Center in March. In the mean time, Fury will take his family for a brief holiday.
“I promised the wife and kids we’re going to go on a gypsy holiday, so I’ll get the trailer washed down tomorrow, put it on the road and away we go,” he joked.
