Tyson Fury: “I have three more fights left in Britain”


WBC heavyweight champion Briton Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) is confident that he has three box office fights left in his homeland. But at the same time, one of the current heavyweight leaders for some reason forgot about his promise to fight compatriot Joe Joyce.

Another funny moment is that two of the “Fury list” have already hung up gloves on a nail a long time ago. First Tyson
remembered Olympic medalist David Price: “I’m wondering if we would be able to fill the whole stadium now if we agreed on a duel? Yes, I’m talking about big old Price. I remember that he is retired. But I think he would have come out to fight for the WBC title. Unless, of course, such a fight is sanctioned. And if not, then we could fight for the belt of the champion of the Northwestern district or for the champion of Britain. I’m sure we’d fill the arena Old Trafford (Manchester) or Anfield (Liverpool)”.

The whole point is that “at one time we had a real feud, because this dude is the only one in Britain who has ever beaten me as an amateur or a pro. What other fight am I interested in? Of course with “Mr Broken Finger” by David Haye. Do you think we would fill the stadium with him? I now think that in Britain I have only three really big confrontations left. Even though two of them are retired. Only three – Price, Hay and Anthony Joshua. Dudes, you appear sometimes in the hall, right? Yes, that’s exactly what I’m talking about. But it’s all from the “What if” series of conversations, right?”

In the same interview, Fury told what he would do if it were not for boxing and recalled Wladimir Klitschko: “I hope he understands this now.”
