Tyson Fury promises to return


Share This Article:

Having not fought since 2015 and faced battles with depression and drug abuse since, Tyson Fury has now reversed his latest decision to retire.

In a recent public appearance Fury said: “When I get my license back and I get fit again and I get this five stone off – what did Schwarzenegger say? 'I'll be back’.”

Given how massively lucrative his next match could be, were he to face Anthony Joshua or Deontay Wilder, as he has said he would like to, it’s tempting to take Fury at his word. However Fury is notoriously erratic and has been repeatedly changing his mind on the issue of his retirement over the last few months.

The British Boxing Board of Control and the UK Anti-Doping Agency are preparing an independent hearing for the former world champion. Currently, without a license, it’s impossible for him to fight Joshua or Wilder for their titles.

Speaking on the prospect of taking on one of the current world champions, Fury said “I think they are all bums… I reckon personally on my night in the heavyweight division I think I'm capable of beating anybody… I don’t fear nobody – and especially not some pumped up weightlifter. That’s for sure”.
