Tyson Fury insists he doesn’t want to come out of retirement and is ‘all out of getting punched in the face for a few quid’… though admits that ‘everyone has a price’ and would return to the ring against anyone for £500million
- Tyson Fury announced his retirement after knocking out Dillian Whyte in April
- The Gypsy King still doesn’t want to come out of retirement two months on
- He has insisted though that he would fight anyone if offered £500million
Tyson Fury has no plans to make a U-turn on his decision to retire from boxing, but has admitted he would consider returning to the ring if he was to receive a whopping £500million.
The Gypsy King made the decision to hang up his gloves after knocking out Dillian Whyte in front of a packed Wembley crowd in April.
Many are dubious over Fury’s claims that he is done with the sport, and since his victory over Whyte, has been asked on several occasions whether he would return to the ring.
Tyson Fury doesn’t want to come out of retirement but would consider it for the right price
The Gypsy King says he is ‘all out of being punched in the head for a few quid’
In an interview with iFL TV, Fury has hit out at people who have criticised him for retiring from the sport.
He said: ‘I’m all out of getting punched in the face for a few quid.
‘Got plenty of money, still got my faculties and brains about me. Six kids and a wife to look after.
‘So if anyone wants to criticise me for that, they can go suck my balls basically.’
Fury insisted he doesn’t want to return to the ring, but would step back in if he was offered £500million.
Fury said he would fight the winner of Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua for £500m
He said: ‘Everything is for sale, everything has a price. At £500million, is my price.
‘If anyone’s willing to pay that, then I will gladly give them what they want. But I don’t want to come out of retirement and I have put a massive number on it.
‘If anyone wants to pay it, then they know where to come. Contact me, holla at your boy.’
Fury recently told Good Morning Britain that he would want £500million to fight the winner of Anthony Joshua’s rematch with Oleksandr Usyk.
The rematch has been confirmed as taking place in Saudi Arabia on August 20.

When asked it would depend on who the opponent is for him to make his comeback, Fury responded: ‘It’s not ‘who’ it’s ‘how much’ and that’s £500million.’
He then joked: ‘If I was a multi-billionaire and I wanted to put Tyson Fury on versus Pudsey the Bear in my front garden, on a Tuesday afternoon, then guess what, I’d do it.
‘There’s people out there with that type of money and if they want to do that they can. I’ll fight their cousin’s best friend’s goldfishes’ daughter. I don’t care.’
