Tyson Fury is scheduled to fight Deontay Wilder February 22nd in one of the most highly anticipated rematches in recent years. After the first fight Fury sent the internet into meltdown when he looked to be knocked out cold in the 12th round before suddenly climbing off the canvas in dramatic Undertaker fashion and going on to dominate the rest of the round.
Since the first fight Fury’s star power has gone through the roof. However, boxing fans may want to embrace and appreciate the lineal Heavyweight champ while he’s still fighting as it seems he has his eyes set on retirement after his next three fights. During an interview with IFL TV released on YouTube earlier today, Tyson Fury was asked how long he thinks he has left in the game, Fury responded saying:
‘I’ve got three more fights left, I expect Wilder next, Joshua then Dillian Whyte then I’m out’
Fury is only 31 years old which is relatively young for a Heavyweight. It would be a shame to see Fury retire with so many good young prospects coming through and potential match up’s with the likes of Daniel Dubois, Filip Hrgovic, Efe Ajagba and so many more. Not to mention Fury is without doubt one of boxing s most entertaining characters. However boxing is a dangerous sport and fighters put their health and lives on the line every time they step in the ring so decisions to retire must be respected.
So what do you think? Will the fights mentioned get made? Will Fury really hang up his gloves?
