Tyson Fury Explains Why He Almost Quit His Career During Deontay Wilder Fight

WBC heavyweight title holder Tyson Fury has fought many memorable battles throughout the course of his career. However, there is one match which almost put a full stop on his professional career for good.

The 33-year-old states that he almost retired during the match against Deontay Wilder last year. In front of a packed group of people at Las Vegas, it was the “Gypsy King” who retained his title in the 11th round knockout of Wilder.
Fury said he was not looking forward to seeing Wilder punches coming at him. After the match, he thought he may have have suffered a brain injury in the process.

“I knocked him out in round 11, but it wasn’t just hunky dory and let’s all skip back to the changing rooms. I was feeling the back of my head and I had lumps on the back of my head like fists. I didn’t know if I had brain damage, I didn’t know what was up with me,” Fury said, according to The Sun.

“I was very frightened because I had these massive swellings on the back of my head. I was thinking, ‘I could end up with brain damage.’ I was concussed, I didn’t remember anything. I suppose when you get knocked down like that you don’t remember a lot. I was thinking, ‘Did I get put down four times?’ I actually got put down twice. I thought to myself, ‘You know what? I think it’s time to call it a day.’ That was after Wilder 3.”
