WBC heavyweight king Tyson Fury [who previously said his career was limited to three more fights, now says he] has no desire to slow down. Fury revealed his current plans to continue boxing until the age of 40. Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) was last in action in February, when he knocked out Deontay Wilder in seven rounds at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas to win the WBC heavyweight title That win saw Fury cement himself as the best heavyweight on the planet, and the 31 year-old has made his future intentions perfectly clear.
Fury told ESPN: “I’m going to fight on until I’m 40 years old. I’ve been thinking about it, and there isn’t much else to do anyways. So yeah, I may as well keep fighting. I don’t see anyone out there that can challenge me anyway. I just flattened the best one out there, the toughest opponent out there is Deontay Wilder, and we all saw what happened to him the last time out.”
Along with the triumph over Wilder, Fury has recorded a number of fantastic wins in his career, including victories over Wladimir Klitschko, Derek Chisora [and to a lesser extent] Christian Hammer, Otto Wallin and Tom Schwarz.
Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) spends a lot of time in training camps in America, with the most recent of those coming up in the build up to when he knocked out Deontay Wilder in seven rounds at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas to win the WBC heavyweight title.
The current lockdown has led to families spending more time together, and Fury is one of those that is relishing the time with his loved ones. Fury told ESPN: “As a family, this has been good for us. We can take positives out of any negative situation because you get to spend a lot of time with each other. More time than I would’ve been able to if the lockdown hadn’t been on. We’ve done a lot of training workouts together and stuff. It’s grown the family closer. I’m not really interested in boxing right now because the most important thing is staying alive. There’s been a lot of pandemics like this throughout history that have killed a lot of people. It’s killed a lot of people already. This is bigger than me, this is bigger than boxing, bigger than sports. So when the world gets back right, again, then we’ll talk about entertaining the customers and the fans.”
