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.
