Former world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury says he’s now a former fighter turned-journalist after posting his first interview online.
Fury, 27, has had his fair share of gripes with the media since becoming a big name in the sport but has now entered (tongue-in-cheek) the very domain he butts heads with constantly.
‘2 Fast’ even posted his first ‘interview’ with European featherweight title challenger and friend Isaac Lowe via his Instagram account as Fury brushes up on his technique.
There would be plenty of takers if Fury was serious about embarking on a new career as no end of tabloids and everyday newspapers would jump at the chance to have a column with the lineal king.
Earlier, the Klitschko-conqueror had made one of his famous u-turns by stating he’s happily retired following a series of rants against his divisional rivals.
The current Ring Magazine ruler had been on a considerable warpath recently but has now confirmed his contentment away from boxing.
“Enjoying my retirement. You know it’s not all about money and fame,” said Fury. “It’s about having a great family and friends. I achieved my dreams, (it’s) your turn.”
Judging by his first chat with Lowe, there could soon be more to come from Fury in the question and answer stakes.
