WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury explained why he returned to boxing after announcing his retirement.
After knocking out Dillian Whyte at Wembley on April 23 this year, the “Gypsy King” said that this was his last professional boxing match, but his position soon changed.
Interview with Tyson Fury
“I can’t quit the sport. Psychologist might be needed. I think I definitely need psychological help because I can’t get rid of all this in any other way. If you ask me why I keep fighting, I’ll answer that I no longer have goals and ambitions in boxing. I fight only because I feel, I need boxing to stay sane. I fight to survive every day. I’m not sure if I can live without professional boxing. I spent 4 months out of the ring, but I train 7 times weekly, twice a day.”
The undefeated world champion also spoke about the unarranged confrontation with Anthony Joshua:
“They had a contract for 2 weeks, but they didn’t sign it, they mentioned some commercial reasons. I don’t blame you, Joshua will always find an excuse to avoid a fight with me. I have 3-4 rounds to knock him out. According to the contract, there are 8 weeks left before the fight, but they don’t agree. . . . It doesn’t matter if you give me 2 years, they won’t sign the contract because they know I’ll go through it like a hot knife through butter,” Fury said.
34-year-old Tyson Fury played 33 matches in the professional ring, won 32, and ended with one draw. After defeating Wladimir Klitschko in 2015, the Manchester boxer struggled with depression for 3 years, gained significant weight, and started taking drugs. However, later he overcame the problem and returned to active boxing.
