The reigning WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury recently spoke about undefeated boxing great Floyd Mayweather.
Tyson Fury opens up on Floyd Mayweather
‘The Gypsy King’ made an appearance on The MMA Hour on Monday. It has been noted that he was looking forward to dedicating more time to domestic life. Despite his retirement, he is once again set to return to the ring and he said that the itch to fight never left and he eventually gave in. He also recently spoke about ‘Money’ fighting YouTubers and he believes Mayweather also could not let go the opportunity to fight in the ring:
“I was at home, I did everything I wanted to do,” Fury said. “I wanted to spend some time with my family. I wanted to be that father. The kids, the school runs and all that, the dog, I wanted to do all that sort of stuff. Then I realized that’s for normal people and I’m anything but a normal person. I’m like an abnormal alien. I only thrive when I’m in training camp for a fight. I really don’t know what’s going to happen in the future when that is not an option anymore. I’m pretty f***** up, I think.
“I’m very worried because I can’t let go just like most of the great champions throughout history. Look at Floyd Mayweather. The guy’s 45 years old taking f****** fights against YouTubers and stuff because he can’t let it go. It’s a very difficult thing to let it go. Very difficult.”
Eight months after his most recent fight and four months after announcing his retirement from competition, the heavyweight boxing star returns to the ring to fight Derek Chisora in a trilogy bout that takes place Saturday at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.
