Tyson Fury claims he has no plans to retire and has named nine heavyweights he would like to fight after facing Anthony Joshua. Fury beat Deontay Wilder in February to win the WBC heavyweight title but the Bronze Bomber has indicated that he wants to activate his rematch clause. Speaking in March, Fury revealed that he is ready to retire once he faces Wilder for a third time and then Joshua for a potential unification fight. But Fury has now reconsidered his plans and wants to extend his career in the heavyweight division with fights against Dillian Whyte, Andy Ruiz Jr and the unbeaten 22-year-old British heavyweight Daniel Dubois.
Fury also has his sights set on the 26-year-old unbeaten Nigerian heavyweight, Efe Ajagba, and Tony Yoka, the French heavyweight who won a gold medal at the 2016 Olympics and is unbeaten in seven professional fights. ‘I’ve been thinking about it and initially I had three fights left on my contract, I’ve got two fights left on it now, I’ve got Wilder and Joshua, but I’m just going to keep going because there’s nothing else to do is there really?’ Fury said during a live Instagram video on Thursday.
‘For me, I’m 31 years old, fit as a fiddle, in great mental spirits, I train three or four times a day for bants, and it’s like, ‘what else am I going to do with my life?’. ‘You know, there’s plenty of other fighters out there for me to beat up on. You’ve got Dillian Whyte, Jarrell Miller, [Kubrat] Pulev, [Andy] Ruiz, [Luis] Ortiz, [Daniel] Dubois, [Joe] Joyce, there’s loads. ‘There’s Efe Ajagba, the big Nigerian Olympian, there’s Tony Yoka the French Olympic gold medallist.’
