Eddie Hearn Claims Tyson Fury Is 'Packing Up' From Boxing
Tyson Fury's 'head's gone' and he is 'packing up' from boxing, instead concentrating on WWE and his music career, that's according to Matchroom Boxing chief Eddie Hearn.
The lineal heavyweight boxing champion is set to make his competitive debut for WWE in 11 days when he faces Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel but has continued to talk about his rematch with Deontay Wilder.
However Hearn has now questioned Fury's future in boxing. Speaking to iFL TV, Hearn said, "Listen Tyson's [Fury] on a roll right now, he's going for it. He's got a Christmas single coming out, he's doing WWE wrestling - his heads gone completely but he's absolutely living life, so good luck to him.
"I think he's packing up boxing, I really think that he's looking at it and thinking 'I've made a nice few quid over the last few fights, I'm enjoying life.'
"I just think he's looking at this other world and going 'do you know what, this is a lot more fun than getting my head punched and going into camp.'
"I'm sure he'll fight again but I don't think he's got the hunger.
"It's hard, look, all of a sudden he's earned some great money, he's prancing around in Los Angeles getting in the ring doing all this cringey stuff with the WWE guys everyone's loving it - it's brilliant for him.
"He's got the Robbie Williams thing, good luck to him.
"I don't believe he has the same hunger, that he had, well certainly pre-Klitschko, but even pre-Wilder."
Fury fought to a controversial draw with Wilder last December and the Gypsy King reportedly has a deal in place with the Bronze Bomber for their rematch in February.
Before that he faces Strowman whilst the WBC champion takes on Luis Ortiz next month, in another rematch, with the title on the line.
Should they both get through their next fights, be it in the boxing or wrestling ring, then they are expected to face twice more.
On top of his WWE match the undefeated British heavyweight is also set to feature on Robbie Williams Christmas album 'The Christmas Present' on the song 'Bad Sharon.'
Fury certainly isn't focusing solely on his boxing career right now but should he face Wilder again then the American would be foolish to underestimate his opponent, as he arguably did in the first fight.
