Tyson Fury is the WBC World Heavyweight Champion and he competed against Deontay Wilder on October 9th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Tyson Fury was also possibly caught cheating using gloves.
After a very long back and forth boxing match that featured Deontay Wilder knocking Tyson Fury down twice during the fourth round, it was Tyson Fury who won the boxing match after he defeated Deontay Wilder in the 11th round. He then retired recently as well.
Everyone keeps asking about this fight with this Ukrainian guy,” Tyson Fury told talkSPORT. “I’ve made it quite clear that I’ve retired from boxing and I’m very happy. However, I will come back, but it has to be an obscene amount of money.
Let’s face it, it’s not Anthony Joshua, it’s some foreigner who nobody really cares about and that’s it. I don’t mind chucking a dog a bone, but I don’t want to chuck him the whole dog’s home. If they want me to fight this unknown quantity and give him an opportunity of legendary status, then they’ve got to pay for that. They’ve got a week, it’s August 24 today.
“This fight is purely about money. I’m happily retired. If they want the Gypsy King to fight, they’ve got to pay an obscene amount of money. [Floyd] Mayweather got £400m for [fighting Manny] Pacquiao, I want £500m for Usyk. There you go. I know they’ve got the money. They’ve offered Tiger Woods £1billion before.
I have no real interest in Usyk, a pumped-up middleweight who just beat AJ. It ain’t my fault that it’s happened twice in a row. However, there’s only ever been one and it’s me. There’s no disrespect to Joshua because he’s a 24-3 fighter, but at top level boxing he just can’t cut it. People can say what they want, this fight is purely about business.”
