WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury says he has boxed “over” but may be tempted to return to the ring for মিল 500 million ($ 611.20 million).
Fury fired his colleague British Dillian White in April to retain his title before telling fans he would stick to his wife’s promise to retire.
“I’ve won everything, so a fighter can do whatever he wants,” Fury told the Daily Telegraph on Saturday. “But real people are done with fights.
“Boxing – and professional fighting – I’ve got a lot more on it … I’ve done what I was asked to do, I’ve beaten every opponent and been able to make a living after that – isn’t that amazing and one? Nice thing? “
Asked how much money would be needed to persuade him to return, Fury said “500 million pounds”.
“So if anyone wants to give it, I’m sure there are a lot more people out there, then I’ll come back. But until that day, Kaput, I’m out. And if anyone wants to waste half a billion, I think my morality will be tested.
In April, Fury’s wife Paris said Anthony Joshua could return to the undisputed world title fight against the winner of the rematch with 33-year-old Alexander Yusik.
