While celebrating Nathan Gorman’s first professional championship victory on Friday, Tyson Fury was forced to shove an overly passionate fan away.
The 33-year-old Tyson Fury was in attendance at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool. He was there for his cousin Gorman’s heavyweight match against Tomas Salek.
After knocking out Salek, his Czech opponent, in the first round, the 25-year-old Nathan Gorman won the IBF International Heavyweight title. Fury celebrated the win ringside with his cousin.
However, an overly enthusiastic fan leaped at Fury. Before exiting, flanked by security personnel, Tyson shoved the fan aside.
This happened only days after Fury decided to come back to boxing after announcing his retirement.
Fury had announced his retirement in April after KOing Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium. However, he is now willing to battle once again if the price is right.
Fury said, “I will be back in the ring 100 per cent, just like in the movie when Jerry Maguire shouted, ‘Show me the money!’”
“If anyone can show me the money then it’s Frank Warren. I call him the Magic Man and we are going to make some big, big things happen.”
In a possible match, Fury said he would fight former heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua. However, he would only fight him for “half a billion pounds.”
Fury also did not rule out a professional boxing return. For the time being, though, he is looking for exhibition matches with famous 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.”
