A former world champion said why WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury might never fight again.
Boxing fans are currently disappointed that the undisputed world heavyweight title bout expected to happen on February 17 was moved to May 18 because Tyson Fury got wounded on the brow.
Many think that Fury might dodge the fight, and among them is former world boxing champion George Groves.
Groves and Hall of Famer Carl Froch have vocalized their doubts on whether Fury will fight Oleksander Usyk who holds the WBA, WBO, and IBF heavyweight titles.
Speaking to IFL TV, Groves said:
‘There are all these stories Fury’s had a terrible camp, he’s been dropped in camp, he’s past it, the 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 rounding day, so we might never see Fury fight again, who knows.’
However, Fury has announced that there is no cause for alarm since he had few fights on his rader.
Fury said the following on his Instagram post:
‘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.’
Fans only have to prepare for anything while waiting to see what happens next.See Dollar(USD) to Naira Black Market Exchange Rate Today!
