Fury Thinks He Has Three Fights Left
Tyson Fury is set to challenge for the WBC heavyweight championship in his next fight, but it appears he thinks that he won’t be sticking around boxing for much longer.
Fury is currently taking part in WWE programming, scheduled to face Braun Strowman at the professional wrestling promotion’s Crown Jewel event on Halloween. He is currently waiting on the result of the November 23 WBC title fight between Deontay Wilder and Luis Ortiz. With a Wilder win, Fury and Wilder will have a rematch of their December 2018 controversial split draw — a fight which plenty felt Fury won.
But regardless of what happens in the Wilder rematch, should it happen, Fury feels he has only his next fight and two others after in the tank before he calls it a career.
“I don’t think I will have many more fights. Maybe another three maximum. That’s it,” Fury told PA Sport.
In November 2015, Fury, the current undefeated lineal heavyweight champion, upset Wladimir Klitschko to claim the WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight championships. A contractual rematch with Klitschko forced him to surrender the IBF title after just 10 days and he surrendered the WBA and WBO titles after losing his boxing license thanks to his struggles with drugs, alcohol and depression.
Fury, 31, has gone 4-0-1 in his comeback, while Klitschko went on to get stopped by Anthony Joshua in a title fight before retiring at the age of 41.
“I don’t know what Klitschko’s motivation was,” Fury said. “I think I am coming to the tail end of my boxing career at the ripe old age of 31.
It’s a young man’s game. I’ve had my time in the sun. A few more fights and I will relax on the beach somewhere.
