On October 3rd, 2016, Tyson Fury announced that he is tired of boxing after he pulled out of his proposed rematch with Vladimir Klitschko, the Ukrainian superstar and said,
“Boxing is the saddest thing I ever took part in. I’m the greatest and I’m also retired”
Shortly after that, he announced that he had a change of heart and that he is not giving up his gloves by saying that ‘he is here to stay’ and tweeted:
“Hahahaha u think you will get rid of the GYPSYKING that easy!!! I’m here to stay. #TheGreatest just shows u what the Medea are like. Tut tut”
The reason behind him pulling himself out of the match just a day before is considered to be the failed urine test which tested positive for the substance benzoylecgonine, a central compound of cocaine.
Fury made a lot of headlines in the sports world by offending many people with his sexist, homophobic and anti-Semitic comments but he apologized later. According to him now, he just needs to get back in shape and he will be good to fight in no time. According to WBC’s number 8th heavyweight contender, Gerald Washington,
“I know he put himself in a bad position right now, but he still has a brain and the skills to fight. If he can whip himself back into shape, I’d love to see him give it another go”
While fury is proud of his unbeaten record, David Haye expects to see him in the ring because according to him,
“I think heavyweight boxing is more fun with him in it than not in it”
Return of Fury is exciting, obviously, people would love to see him and David fight. Their war of words has raised the anticipation of many boxing critics and fans. David also said,
“I always want what’s best for boxing and he’s a big character. He’s always screaming and shouting all kinds of nonsense, so it’s better if he’s in boxing.”
Whether David gets a chance to beat Fury or not, that is the question that might get answered after his grudge match against Tony Bellew next month.
