I’m a former boxing world champion… Tyson Fury is past it and we might NEVER see Gypsy King fight again

TYSON FURY may never fight again after his dream match with Oleksandr Usyk was pushed back.

That is according to former boxing world champion George Groves, who suggested Fury may be close to the end of his glittering career.

The Gypsy King was set for an undisputed title showdown against Usyk on February 17 in Saudi Arabia.

However, the heavyweight bout was called off after the undefeated Mancunian suffered a horror cut during a sparring session.

A new date has been announced with the two rivals now set to square off on May 18 in Riyadh.

If either fighter pulls out of the fight on that date, they will be fined a massive £10million.

But former WBA super-middleweight champion Groves doubts even that will guarantee Fury, 35, will step into the ring.

Groves told IFL TV: “There are all these stories Fury’s had a terrible camp, he’s been dropped in camp, he’s past it, the [Francis] Ngannou fight shows where he’s at.

“Well, what if he’s had a great camp, he’s high flying, he’s going to show the world what he’s capable of and beat this Ukrainian guy to get the belts, then he gets cut.

“That’s going to be even harder to get over mentally and emotionally than having a stinker of a camp and trying to turn it round, so we might never see Fury fight again, who knows.”


Fury, though, insists he has still got a lot left in the tank and is not planning to retire any time soon.

In fact, the British superstar is eyeing two fights with Usyk, a dream match with Anthony Joshua and a rematch with UFC legend Francis Ngannou.

Fury said: “I’m hearing talk of people saying that I should retire or I’m gonna retire soon, or whatever. I ain’t retiring anywhere.

“I’ve got two fights with Usyk, for the undisputed twice. Then I’m gonna fight AJ at least once.

“Maybe twice if there’s a rematch, if he wants one after the first battering I give him. And then I’m gonna fight Ngannou again.

“And that’s just to start. So there’s five little fights for you to whet your appetite with.

“I ain’t going nowhere. Nowhere. I’m 35-year-old in the prime of my life.”
