Comeback KO? Tyson Fury
FORMER heavyweight champ Tyson Fury has said that he could RETIRE.
The 28-year-old hasn’t had a fight since November 2015 due to a series of personal issues including mental health issues, drug addiction and ballooning weight.
The Gypsy King is waiting for a rescheduled Anti-Doping hearing in October after allegations he took performance-enhancing drugs last year.
But Fury has cast doubt on the likelihood of a comeback.
He told BoxNation: “I don’t like talking about myself anymore, especially that I’m not involved in boxing.
“I’ve not been involved in the sport for nearly two years, so I don’t think it’s fair to try and dampen the lads as it’s their big time to shine.
“My time was two years ago.
“If I come back there will be an announcement, but if I don’t then goodbye.
“For this game, you’ve got to really love it and want it – you’ve got to be very, very hungry.”
And Fury even compared himself to Rocky Marciano, the boxing great who retired with a record of 49 wins and zero losses in 1955.
“I’m undefeated – second in history of heavyweight champions to retire unbeaten behind Rocky Marciano,” added Fury.
“I’ve unified the full division, beat the man who couldn’t be beaten – do I need to do any more?”
After that stunning win over Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015, Fury has not stepped back in the ring.
A rematch with Klitschko was postponed then cancelled after Fury tested positive for cocaine.
He eventually vacated his world titles and had his boxing license suspended.
