The fairytale of the Tyson Fury comeback continues after the Englishman delivered a knockout performance against Tom Schwarz to wow Las Vegas.
Since his return, the ‘Gypsy King’ has become an inspiration to millions around the world and is now leading the way in trying to help those suffering with mental illness.
And Fury, who has stated the age-old strap is the only title he’s concerned about, revealed boxing has played a huge factor in keeping him fit and healthy inside and out of the ring.
He said: “I box because I like to keep happy and it keeps me happy to fight. I plan to box until I can’t box anymore.
“I feel fantastic at the minute. Boxing keeps me really happy. And I’m very happy with where I am in my life at the minute.
“I want to box on. I don’t see myself retiring. Also, I just turned 30 years old. I’ve got over 10 years left in this game. So you’ll have to keep seeing me for the next 10 years, I’m afraid. Keep entertaining, keep putting on great shows.”
On his current moniker following the likes of Lennox Lewis, Jack Dempsey and Muhammad Ali, Fury added: “The only title that I care about is the lineal championship of the world.
“It goes back a long, long way, and that’s the one I’m defending with pride and honor.”
“If you look at the Ring Magazine ratings, I think they get it quite right. I think that’s the official ratings of today, the most fair, the most accurate.”
Fury, who was awarded Fighter of the Year in 2018 by WBN due to a readers poll, reflected on THAT 12th round against Deontay Wilder.
Furthermore, how he miraculously climbed up from the canvas.
“I think it was a higher power that brought me to my feet to spread the word on mental health. To help other people.
“I hope it inspired many people as I enjoyed getting up off that canvas and fighting on. And it takes more than a punch to knock me down. To make me stay down.”
