Mick Hennessy: Tyson Fury is not retired, he just wants a massive fight!
Promoter Mick Hennessy has confirmed that Tyson Fury will be back in the ring again soon and that his retirement statement is solely down to frustration over the David Haye saga, as previously predicted on WBN.
“Tyson is frustrated, he’s been to hell and back with this, it’s been ridiculous for him,” Hennessy told talkSPORT Drivetime.
“He’s wanted David Haye since he turned pro, it was personal to him, he always felt like he could do a job on him.
“He moved mountains to make that fight and he even gave up a final eliminator for the right to fight Klitschko.
“But he’s sting young – he’s only 25 – and right now I need to find the right motivation for him because he wants to be in a massive fight.
Hennessy is trying desperately to secure that big clash 25 year-old Fury craves, with his first choice being a huge undefeated encounter with American puncher Deontay Wilder in the first half of 2014.
“He wants to fight the best and I’m trying hard in the background to do that,” said Hennessy. “He wants this fight against Wilder.
“There were a lot of rumours going around that Wilder had knocked Haye out in the gym. He’s a serious contender and it’s a much bigger fight, for me, than the David Haye fight.
“This is a recipe for a superfight, so bring on Deontay Wilder, bring on the Klitschko’s – Tyson will beat any of them, his time will come.
“Tyson Fury is a fighting man, he was given that name, this is his destiny, we just need to put the right fight in front of him that motivates him.”
