Tyson Fury Unretires On One Condition
It took just 52 days for Tyson Fury to say he’s not done with boxing just yet – and for the right amount.
Fury revealed that he’s willing to return to the ring and fight Oleksandr Usyk for a big pay day, if the Ukrainian defeats Anthony Joshua in their rematch.
“When this middleweight knocks out this bodybuilder again, there’s only gonna be one man to sort this out, Fury told Dev Sahni on the Unibet Lowdown.
“What I would say to these people who want this fight to happen is – you better have a big check book. Because to bring the big GK out of retirement for active battle duty, to redeem this country yet again, it’s gonna cost.”
After Fury scored a sixth-round TKO over mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte, he insisted that his retirement was real.
Instead, the next time fans would see him in action would be a crossover bout against UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou.
Then there was dilemma on whether or not Fury had to get scheduled for his next title defense, but WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman said that he and the sanctioning body won’t be rushing Fury for another fight until next year, which is his next mandatory defense.
“I am a prize fighter and I do fight for prizes, but it’s gonna cost if you want me to do a mission on this guy, this middleweight, I’ll show you what a real heavyweight does to them,” Fury added.
