Tyson Fury’s wife Paris admits he’d change retirement plans for one fight

Tyson Fury has publicly claimed that he’s retired from boxing, but his wife knows him better than most, and she’s not convinced.

On April 23, ‘The Gypsy King’ produced a spectacular performance to retain his WBC Heavyweight Championship. Fury dazzled the 94,000 spectators in attendance and the millions watching worldwide. The 6 ft 9 giant left Dillian Whyte chasing shadows until he launched a brutal uppercut to render his opponent unconscious.

Although Fury entered the bout as a heavy favourite, most expected him to have a difficult night. Popular pundits like Tony Bellew and Spencer Oliver even claimed that the sporting icon would have to rise from the canvas to get the decision. But how wrong they were—Fury couldn’t have made it look any easier.

In the aftermath, the heavyweight treated the crowd to a rendition of ‘American Pie’. However, as the dust settled, the Brit’s retirement claims attracted mass media attention. Having reached the pinnacle of the sport, there’s not much left to achieve. He schooled long-reigning champion Wladimir Klitschko, before spiralling into the dark depths of depression.

However, he conquered the odds to return to the ring and relieve Deontay Wilder of his title. Although defeating Whyte was a nice cherry on the top of the cake, Fury’s arc of zero to hero had already reached its climax. Therefore, some of his fans want him to call it a day. However, his better half believes there’s one last dance in the tank.

Who does Tyson Fury’s wife think he would return to boxing for?

After the contest, the victor welcomed UFC heavyweight king Francis Ngannou into the ring. The pair hyped up a potential exhibition match, in which the Cameroonian would have to swing from the hills to try and catch his opponent.

But he’s not the man Fury’s wife believes her husband would come back for. She explained he’d only return to the squared circle should every belt be on the line.

As per The Daily Mail, she said: “I know that in my heart the only reason Tyson would come back is for a unification fight as he has nothing left to prove. To keep boxing on, there’s nothing there for him.

Although Fury has virtually completed boxing, no one can deny that potential collisions with Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua make the mouth water.

Usyk and Joshua are scheduled to fight in a rematch later this year.

For his last outing, the sporting icon took home $33.6 million. But a bout with either of his two heavyweight rivals could earn him in excess of $100 million.
