Tyson Fury Meets Deadline, Will Resume Boxing Career

Tyson Fury isn’t done just yet.

Fury has told his promoters to inform the WBC that he intends to continue fighting, Sky Sports reported.

WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman had extended Fury’s deadline to next Friday, September 2, due to the news that Fury’s cousin was stabbed to death earlier this week.

The news comes after months of Fury going in and out of retirement talk, which first started after he defeated Dillian Whyte by knockout in April.

Fury then began to self-promote a crossover bout with UFC heavyweight Francis Ngannou, which would possibly happen next year. Promoters have said they are interested in making it happen, but Ngannou must first heal from an injury he sustained in January as well as straighten out his contract with the UFC.

Fury then teased returns to the ring, but in the form of exhibition matches.

More recently, Fury announced that he wanted another fight with Derek Chisora, but that didn’t happen.

Fury continued to leave the door open when Oleksandr Usyk won in his rematch against Anthony Joshua, retaining the WBA, WBO and IBF titles. Fury posted a video on social media saying that he would “annihilate” Usyk.

Usyk said a fight with Fury is all he wants.

“Both fighters want it,” Frank Warren, Fury’s co-promoter has said.

“I’m confident we can make it happen and crown Tyson Fury as the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.

“It will be the biggest heavyweight fight in my time in boxing.”
