Tyson Fury says he’s in no rush to announce if he will come back.
Ever since Fury knocked out Dillian Whyte to defend his belts, he announced his retirement from the sport. However, many didn’t think that would be the case as there still is the massive fight against the winner of Oleksandr Usyk vs. Anthony Joshua 2 and for Fury, he doesn’t understand why people are already nagging him about when and if he will box again.
“I’ve seen the Daily Mail, idiots that they are, that I’m in deep negotiations with the Saudis and Usyk’s team,” Fury noted during a 35-minute in-house interview that premiered on Queensberry Promotions’ YouTube channel on Tuesday (via BoxingScene). “Frank Warren’s my team. If anyone is going to be doing any sort of dealings with anybody for any fight, it’s Frank. I know Frank doesn’t know anything, unless he’s got those big numbers under his sleeve and he’s going to whip them out during this interview. Just the Daily Mail talking s**t. Nothing as of yet. Something will come out, but it doesn’t involve Usyk or Joshua. I will make a decision on all of this. I’m the one who just fought, it wasn’t even three months ago. I wouldn’t be coming back until October or November, December anyway.”
Not only is Tyson Fury frustrated people want a decision given he just fought, along with the fact he doesn’t have any mandatory challengers. With that, he says he has no rush on his decision and will continue to watch the heavyweight division and see what happens.
“Ever since I said I was retired, everyone’s been on me going, ‘Are you really retiring? Have a couple more fights.’ This has been going on every day,” admitted Fury. “I’ve got no mandatories coming up. I took care of two mandatories back-to-back, [Deontay] Wilder and Whyte. I could have two voluntaries if I want. No one’s pushing me to do anything. I’ve got no rush to make a decision.”
