Tyson Fury reveals retirement U-turn in video with promoter Frank Warren – ‘Show me the money!’ | boxing news

Tyson Fury said he would “100%” return to the ring, but stressed “big pockets” are needed for a potential unification bout against Anthony Joshua or Oleksandr Usyk.

The 33-year-old has repeatedly declared he is retiring after successfully defending his WBC world heavyweight crown in April in a sixth-round stoppage of Dillian Whyte at Wembley.

Rumors have since swirled about a potential return, however, and Fury – who has yet to vacate his WBC belt – hinted that a big reveal was coming shortly after speaking to promoter Frank Warren last week. .

“We have some very exciting news coming up, I think the world is waiting for our action plan,” Fury told Queensberry’s YouTube channel.

“We had a great time speaking Italian in London, we had a long chat about a lot of things and…Frank, do you want to pick it up from here?”

Warren then added: “We looked at a few scenarios. I spoke to Tyson again today, and we hope to find something that Tyson wants to do. We talked about various scenarios.

As he prepares to make his Las Vegas debut on Saturday night, Muhammad Ali’s grandson Nico Ali Walsh has declared Tyson Fury to be one of the greatest heavyweights of all time.

“Maybe an exhibition fight, we don’t know. Something will come out of it. Once Tyson is happy, then I’ll be happy, and whatever happens will be.

“There’s obviously a lot to talk about, and the public will want to see Tyson Fury back in the ring, where he’s king. I want to see that.

“I get where Tyson is and what he said, people retire and come back in a few years, I like guys fighting when they’re at their peak, and to me, Tyson Fury isn’t at its peak [yet]. That performance last time was something else, but we’re going to have a good conversation and I’m sure we’re going to have some good news that we can announce soon enough.”

Asked if that meant he would return in some form, Fury replied: “One hundred percent, like Jerry Maguire said, Frank, ‘Show me the money!’

“If anybody can show me the money, I gave Frank Warren a nickname years ago, I called him the ‘Magic Man.’ absolutely dead, like he did with me, he must have magic.

“We’re going to do something big, big.”

Warren added: “We did this together. This man is amazing to work with.”

EXCLUSIVE: Dillian Whyte was frustrated by what he considered an ‘illegal push’ in his loss to Tyson Fury, but insists he can come back strong to challenge for world titles again.

The prospect of Fury facing the winner of Joshua’s rematch with Usyk in a unification bout was mooted, but Fury said it would be costly to face the “middleweight” or “bodybuilder” next.

“There’s something to be really excited about, but it doesn’t involve Usyk or Joshua at the moment,” Fury said.

“I will make a decision on all of this. I just fought, not even three months ago. You wouldn’t expect me to fight until October, November, December anyway.

“I have no upcoming mandates. No one is pressing me to do anything.

“When that middleweight knocks out that bodybuilder again, there’s only going to be one man to settle this absolute circus, right?

“What I would say to people who want this fight to happen, you better have a big checkbook, because bringing the great ‘GK’ (Gypsy King) out of retirement, buying this country back again, it’s going to cost .

“I’m a fighter and I’m fighting for awards, but it’s going to be expensive if you want me to do a mission on this middleweight and show you what a real heavyweight does to him.

“It’s going to be expensive, you’re going to have to have big pockets, and we can even talk then. Until [they fight]I’m going to stay in Morecambe, train like crazy.”

Asked about his training schedule, Fury said: “I train every day twice a day. I run in the morning and do weights and boxing at night. It’s not for any particular reason. , it’s just to keep me fit, healthy and mentally well. .

“I enjoyed my life, ran and fought, that’s my way of enjoying life. I’ll have a few beers once in a while. I acted like a fool overseas like we all do , in Miami, I’m very happy and keeping myself busy.”
