Tyson Fury Reveals His His Three-Fight Plan Before Retirement

Tyson Fury Reveals His His Three-Fight Plan Before Retirement

Tyson Fury has revealed he only plans to three more fights before he calls time on his illustrious boxing career.

The Gypsy King aims to usurp Deontay Wilder in their WBC world heavyweight title rematch in Los Angeles on February 22 and doesn't believe the Bronze Bomber will want a third encounter.

From then on, the 31-year old is targeting an eagerly anticipated all-British slugfest with two-time unified heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua.

But he wants to sign off against fellow Brit Dereck Chisora for a third time, only this time he's desperate to have it at Old Trafford.

Speaking to BT Sport, he said: "I'm happy just doing what I'm doing, ticking along nice and slowly and just take a few more scalps before I hang the gloves up. Three more.

"I'm going to knock Wilder out, and he's not going to want a rematch, I'm going to fight Joshua, I'm going to beat him too, and then I've always said to my old pal Dereck Chisora I'd have a farewell fight with him.

"Maybe we can get the Old Trafford fight with old Del Boy. And then it's curtains on a fantastic career."

The lineal heavyweight champion will no doubt have plenty of other projects that will take up his time once he decides never to box again.

One such opportunity could be a return to the wonderful world of WWE, where debuted following on from his last bout against Otto Wallin in September

He squared off against 6ft8,420 lb monster Braun Strowman at the Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia in a winning effort and has been tipped to provide more entertainment inside the squared circle in the future.

"Having done a lot of the promotion for the last time he worked with us, there's thoughts out of there for a lot of things with Tyson Fury, Triple H, executive vice president of WWE's talent, live events and creative, said last month.

"He had a blast and one of the things I learned doing press with him for the other time he worked with us was that as a kid he saw himself becoming a WWE superstar, not a boxer.

"The entertainment side of it, that showmanship side of him is in front so I think he would love to do something more with us and [it be] a bigger thing.

"I think he understands the entertainment value and the door is open. The door is open on our side and the door is open on his side but there's a lot of things in between now and then.

"That fight on February 22nd will be huge for him as to what his next steps are in all of this. We're open to that but it needs to be right for everybody."
