He recently revealed this to the press ahead of his fight vs Deontay Wilder, and the world has been reacting.
According to him, he could walk away from professional boxing at any time and he wouldn’t be bothered if his fight with Wilder is his last.
He added that people would always remember him for being the enigmatic and crazy boxer who fought everyone.
His words, “Listen I could walk away today and never look at boxing again and I’ve done what I’ve done and it can never be taken away.”
“People would always remember the enigmatic Tyson Fury, the crazy man who fought everybody. Wasn’t bothered about nobody. Even the biggest punchers in our generation didn’t faze him. Went across the pond, fought Klitschko in Germany.”
“No-one can say anything about me other than I did what I did and that’s it and be proud of it.”
“If I never had another fight, I wouldn’t regret it at all. Not interested. Whoever I fight now, from now on, I’m not fighting to become the greatest of all time, I’m not fighting to become a legend in the game.”
“I’m not fighting for anything. I’m not fighting for a few more quid because it won’t benefit me at all to earn another £50m or another £250m.”
“You could live my lifestyle if you had 10 grand. You don’t need to be rich to live how I live. I just live a normal lifestyle, I’m just a normal person who happens to be very good at boxing and a very special chosen person.”
