WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KO) has stated that he doesn't intend to retire after his upcoming bout with Ngannu or a following his potential showdown with Oleksander Usyk. Fury said:
"After the fights with Ngannu and Usyk, I plan to sign a contract for 10 more fights. I want to continue and see who I can secure the best deals with for another 10 matches. What else? I will retire eventually, I have plenty of money, lots of achievements, but I'm only 35. What else do I intend to do? When I'm boxing, I feel incredibly happy.
It’s what truly makes me happy. So it would be silly to step away from it now when I'm earning millions of dollars and having so much fun. I've been a professional boxer for 15 years. You know, I'm prone to injuries. Boxing is undoubtedly more exciting when I'm in it. What will happen to boxing when I retire?" - Fury said in an ESPN interview.
On October 28th, Fury will face off against Ngannu. Additionally, the British fighter has signed a contract for a fight against Oleksandr Usyk, although the exact date for the fight has not yet been confirmed.
Previously, Usyk discussed the possibility of the fight with Fury happening in December 2023.
