Everyone knows we are able to by no means probably anticipate what Tyson Fury will say subsequent, the reigning WBC heavyweight champ having lately said he’s retired, then altering his thoughts, saying he’ll combat Oleksandr Usyk, then Deontay Wilder a fourth time, then saying he’ll combat Joe Joyce at Wembley “if the middleweight (Usyk) don’t need no smoke in February.”
Now, forward of this Saturday’s unnecessary trilogy combat with Derek Chisora, Fury has laid out one other sport plan. Talking with Sky Sports activities, 34-year-old Fury says he desires to have a minimum of a dozen fights subsequent 12 months, the fights to be staged all around the world. Fury has as soon as once more spoken of his want to interact in a “bum-a-month” marketing campaign (Fury has spoken about this earlier than, with him wishing to comply with the trail the good Joe Louis marched on again within the Nineteen Thirties/’40s.)
“I feel I want to do 12 fights subsequent 12 months, do like a bum-a-month marketing campaign all around the world,” the consistently unpredictable Fury stated in the present day. “I’m going to sit down down with Frank Warren after this combat and see what we are able to do, see if we are able to do a bum-a-month marketing campaign and go to random locations and combat somebody. Go to India, go to China, go to Australia, go to Indonesia, go to Africa, simply combat native individuals.”
Fury says his plan is to emulate the fictional ‘Apollo Creed,’ in ‘Rocky,’ who gave a neighborhood slugger a shot on the largest prize in sports activities. The unhealthy information is, Fury says he’ll “most likely not” combat Oleksandr Usyk subsequent 12 months – “we are going to see,” Fury stated.
Nonetheless, the factor with Fury is that this: he’s so simply capable of change his thoughts that, earlier than even writing an article on Fury, there’s each likelihood “The Gypsy King” could have had one other brainwave and one other thought/plan will likely be in place in his head. Who is aware of what Fury is de facto considering, what he actually desires to do?
There actually isn’t any want for Fury to go on a bum-a-month marketing campaign; not when Fury has very actual opposition on the market within the type of Usyk, Anthony Joshua, Andy Ruiz, Joe Joyce, Frank Sanchez, Filip Hrgovic, Wilder once more, and one or two others. However, in mild of Fury preventing Chisora once more, the query of how a lot urge for food Fury nonetheless has for actual and real fights has been requested.
Once more, who can probably know with Fury? It is perhaps value declaring, although, how NO reigning heavyweight champion has ever had 12 fights inside one calendar 12 months. Not even shut.
