Fury Claims WWE Tougher Than Boxing, Eyes Wrestling Opportunities Moving Forward

Tyson Fury has spoken about the possibility of entering into the world of wrestling. 

The ‘Gypsy King’ will square off against Francis Ngannou on October 28th, 2023, in the hope of then facing Oleksandr Usyk for the undisputed heavyweight championship. That could cap off an unbeaten career, provided that results go his way, with all the belts under the boxer’s disposal, with nothing left to prove in the sport. That could pave the way for further bouts in WWE, given Fury’s history. The heavyweight beat Braun Strowman in 2019 on his WWE debut. This was followed up by a knockout of Austin Theory in 2022 while Fury was sitting ringside. With that being said, this is what Fury had to say. 

“I’ve been [boxing] for 15 years, which is a long time. I know it won’t last forever. And it’s true, I’ve had a few good stints in WWE. There is still a lot of opportunity there. It’s an amazing experience there. At the moment, I’m very busy with boxing. I’m still active and on top of my chosen profession, so this is where my focus will be. After that, we’ll see,” Fury said

Nevertheless, such a move would take some work in light of the following comments. The boxer recognised that the transition into WWE would not be smooth sailing. However, given that Fury is entering into the latter part of his boxing career, a move away from the sport is inevitable. And yet, when it came to WWE, the boxer admitted he would face some struggles.

“WWE’s too hard for me, Boxing is much easier than WWE. It’s very physical and taxing on the body. WWE, getting slammed on the floor and all that sort of stuff. I’d rather move around the ring and dodge punches,” Fury
