Tyson Fury He has admitted that the decision, not definitive for many, to abandon boxing was not a whim, nor a bravado nor a media maneuver.

Fury faced the tremendous puncher three times Deontay Wilderbeing the first and third fights especially hard with several falls for the Briton, who is still the WBC world heavyweight champion.

In the third fight, Fury has acknowledged having several contusions on the back of his head, which made him fear permanent brain damage. He has also stated that he barely remembers the match, and that he considered retiring immediately.

However, the Gypsy King finally chose to stay active in boxing and had a boxing date with Dillian Whyte last April, which expired without much trouble. After her, he did announce that he would probably never get into a ring professionally again.
