WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has announced his retirement after a big win against Dillian Whyte but left room for exhibition fights. Although he has recently been seen training up to twice a day, and some information is circulating every now and then about returning to professional boxing, Tyson Fury has started talking about exhibition fights again.
But this time he was not looking at UFC champion Francis Ngannou but at former world champion Mike Tyson, and at Ukrainian giants; the Klitschko brothers. He gave a very interesting interview for Mirror Sport in which he informs boxing audiences around the world that he is still young enough to be able to retire and return at any time without any problems.
“I’m hoping to do some exhibitions and things like that, I’ve got some big stuff coming up at the end of the year, so we’re looking forward to that. But you never say never to getting back into the ring – it’s not like I’m 52.
I’m 33 years old – I can come back whenever if I wanted to." “For now, I’m happily contented, and I might do a few exhibitions, Mike Tyson or one of the Klitschkos, someone like that, the showbiz and entertainment stuff.
It’s something people are interested in these days”.
He also commented on the spectacle against Dillian Whyte.
“It was right up there. It was one of the biggest crowds ever recorded at Wembley, 94,000, the only person who has come close to me was Adele with 92,000.
To get an epic knockout over some guy nobody wanted to fight, it was just a really one-sided beatdown, it was fantastic." It has been speculated for a long time that Tyson Fury will change his mind about retiring from boxing, and there are several reasons for that.
Fury continues to train daily and recently had a verbal altercation with Joe Joyce. It has also been rumored that Fury is awaiting the outcome of the match between Joshua and Usyk to finally decide whether to retire or not.
Information circulating is that Fury should fight with the winner to unite all the titles in Saudi Arabia on December 17 in Saudi Arabia and that the news will be officially announced next week.
