Being the champion was all the pieces Tyson Fury wished, till it wasn’t.
Fury, the 34-year-old two-time heavyweight boxing champ, opened as much as Ariel Helwani about how defeating Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 was turning level in his life – for the more severe.
“I believe it was a s–t evening, to be sincere. I believe it was like a curse,” Fury stated. “It’s been a reasonably s–tty seven years since. It was a reasonably improbable 27 years resulting in it.”
Helwani was floored. How might that be when Fury had achieved all the pieces he’s ever wished?
“You say I acquired all the pieces I ever wished. I by no means actually wished all the celebrity and all of the hype that comes with being the champion,” Fury responded. “That wasn’t what I used to be about. I acquired all the pieces I wished by beating Klitschko – simply getting that victory over him. You don’t personal your individual life anymore. You possibly can’t go wherever. You possibly can’t stay a traditional life.
“So, it’s not what I wished. And it’s not an awesome life. It sucks d–ok. It’s not good since you don’t have your individual life anymore. I’m caught the place I’ve to be talked to individuals wherever I am going. It’s not what I wished. I didn’t know what I used to be getting myself into, to be honest.”
Fury introduced his retirement from boxing in April, after defeating Dillian Whyte to retain the WBC heavyweight championship.
Nevertheless, the retirement was short-lived, and Fury will struggle Derek Chisora for the third time on Dec. 3 in London. Chisora defeated Fury in 2011, however Fury returned the favor in 2014.
