He's already conquered the world.
Now Tyson Fury wants to try his hand at conquering space.
Heavyweight boxing champ Fury has revealed his bold plans to leave planet earth some day and travel into space.
The 32-year-old, who has clearly grown tired of waiting for Deontay Wilder to activate the rematch clause after their second bout, has decided to release an autobiography.
In the book, simply titled The Furious Method, Fury discusses his plans for the future after he finally hangs up the gloves.
"It's my dream to go to space as one of the first space tourists and I'm already focusing on this and making it happen," he wrote.
"Don't let anybody tell you that you can't achieve your goals or dreams. You can.
"I see myself unstrapping myself from a comfy chair and floating through the cabin of a spaceship to stare through a large window in awe of the beautiful blue place we call home."
But this vision doesn't just stem from nothing.
Fury credits one man and one man only for giving him the belief to dream big.
In the book, Fury adds: "Muhammad Ali once said: 'Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing'.
"What a man Ali was, and what a thought that is. People are achieving their true goals all the time, every day. Who is to say that you can't be one of them?
"Often it can be those close to us who make us doubt ourselves because they want to guide us to take the safe route, the well-travelled path through life.
"But for some of us that's not what we're after."
And that "safe route" adopted by many boxers isn't something Fury is all too familiar with himself.
The undefeated Brit has gone toe-to-toe with some of the baddest boxers on the planet.
He dethroned Wladimir Klitschko in his own backyard, handed Deontay Wilder his first professional defeat with ease and has transformed his life around after a long battle with depression.
So far, that "safe route" Fury refers to has definitely been avoided.
And a quick trip into space would further solidify that the 'Gyspy King' is one of the most fearless men to ever step foot in a ring.
