Tyson Fury Shows His Class Again During Meeting With Young Cancer Patient River Rhodes

Tyson Fury showed what a class act he is after some heartwarming moments with young cancer patient River Rhodes. 

Fury has always been regarded as a champion in and out of the ring and he has showed people why again. 

The unbeaten heavyweight champion has been spotted meeting with the seven-year-old, who suffers from bone cancer.



The footage emerged online showing Fury playing football with River, who nutmegs him in the hallway. 

Later, the boxer was seen embracing River, and he prayed with and for him as River continues his own fight with cancer. 

The Brit declared after his convincing win over fellow countryman Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium that he is to hang up his gloves.

Fury’s career has had its ups and downs both in and out of the ring, despite all his troubles, he was a master in the ring as he ended his career unbeaten with a record of 32 wins and one draw from 33 fights. 

Despite him being adamant that the fight against Whyte in April last year was his last, many boxing fans around the world still have hope that Fury can be tempted back into the ring. 

And it will depend on whether Anthony Joshua can win his rematch against Oleksandr Usyk. Joshua and Fury has been having war of words for a long time but a fight between the pair never materialised. 

They came close to agreeing a fight but Fury was then ordered to fight American Deontay Wilder for the third time. 


Usyk gave Joshua a lesson in boxing when the pair met at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September 2021, the Ukrainian showed his class as he dominated from start to finish and ripped the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles away from Joshua. 

Fury is believed to be continuing his training and keeping himself in good shape, which has led fans to believe he hasn’t completely shut the door on his boxing career. 

He will surely keep a close eye on the rematch between Joshua and Usyk which is due to take place in August in the Middle East. 


Will Fury get back in the ring? Only time will tell.
