Tyson Fury opens up about the reasons for his retirement at a recent event in the UK
WBC & Ring Magazine Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury (32-0-1) is back in the news as he recently attended an event at the Rainton Arena in Houghton-le-Spring, England. The event was called “Fury Fest – The Official After Party Tour” and celebrated his KO victory over Dillian Whytewhich took place in April in front of a record crowd at Wembley Stadium.
At the event, Fury had the following to say to those in attendance as to why he decided to do it retire. “People say, ‘One more, two more.’ But if I were in a wheelchair and I said, ‘I had four more fights and I got brain damage.’ I’m the one getting hit on the head by these giant men. I’m serious folks. I’ve had enough and I don’t want to fight anymore.”
Interestingly, on other occasions, Fury mentioned waiting for the winner of Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk 2 to see if he will lace up the gloves for an undisputed fight. Fury has changed his mind about things he’s mentioned in the past, so that’s no surprise. WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman exclusively told FanSided after Fury’s win over Whyte that “Fury deserved to have some quality time with his family after an incredible event. Whyte was the duty, so there’s no obligation.”
Tyson Fury cites injuries sustained in the Deontay Wilder trilogy as the reason for his retirement.
In the meantime, while Fury’s boxing future is up in the air, the entertainment side is in full swing as rumors swirl that he will be part of another WWE event titled slated for September “Clash at the Castle”, which will be live from the UK. This wouldn’t be Fury’s first engagement in WWE as he had a match with Braun Strauman for the event called Crown Jewel back in 2019. Fury has been very vocal about doing business with WWE in the future and we may see him at a wrestling event this year.
Looking at his comments on the event, one cannot ignore what he has said and only hope that he is treated for anything related to the head injuries he mentioned.
