Tyson Fury plans to have an exhibition against Mike Tyson

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has broken the silence on his comeback. Despite announcing his retirement 8 weeks ago, he’s now saying that he is “never say never” to a unification against the winner of Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua.

‘The Gypsy King’ last fought when he knocked out Dillian Whyte in his homecoming bout in April. Following the win, he declared to the 94,000 attending fans in Wembley that this fight will be his last.

However, recently his promoter Bob Arum had announced that he’s looking to make another fight for Fury. And now, the champion himself shed a light on the rumor.

In an interview with Mirror Sport, Fury announced some of his plans for this year, including some exhibition fights.

“Every time you wake up it’s a fight because you’re fighting to survive. Every day I get out of bed it’s a fight, whether I’m fighting in the boxing ring or fighting in life. Whatever you’re fighting for, whatever your cause is, it’s never easy. I’m hoping to do some exhibitions and things like that, I’ve got some big stuff coming up at the end of the year, so we’re looking forward to that.”

He also did not rule out a comeback to professional boxing. However, for the time being, he is seeking to do some exhibition fights with big names like Mike Tyson and the Klitschko brothers.

“But you never say never to getting back into the ring — it’s not like I’m 52. I’m 33 years old, I can come back whenever if I wanted to. For now, I’m happily contented, and I might do a few exhibitions, Mike Tyson or one of the Klitschkos, someone like that, the showbiz and entertainment stuff. It’s something people are interested these days.”

Despite announcing his retirement, Fury still holds the WBC heavyweight belt. While the holder of the other three belts, Oleksandr Usyk, is now set to rematch against the former titleholder Anthony Joshua. Their rematch is rumored to take place on August 20 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

If Fury is serious about his comeback to pro boxing, we will see the first undisputed heavyweight showdown in the last two decades soon.
