As previously reported, WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is not planning to retire any time soon.
A few months back, Fury had mentioned the plan of retiring after two to three more fights, but now he wants to continue fighting for much longer than that.
He captured the WBC crown back in February with a seven round stoppage over Deontay Wilder at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
A trilogy fight is being planned for the fall, after Wilder exercised an immediate rematch clause, but due to the coronavirus pandemic there is no telling when or where that contest will happen.
After the third fight with Wilder, Fury wants to collide with IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO world champion Anthony Joshua.
The earliest the Joshua fight could take place is in 2021.
Beyond Joshua, Fury named off several boxers that he wants to face at the weight – including Dillian Whyte, Andy Ruiz, Daniel Dubois, Efe Ajagba, and Tony Yoka.
“I’ve been thinking about it and initially I had three fights left on my contract, I’ve got two fights left on it now, I’ve got Wilder and Joshua, but I’m just going to keep going because there’s nothing else to do is there really?” Fury said during a live Instagram video.
“For me, I’m 31 years old, fit as a fiddle, in great mental spirits, I train three or four times a day for bants, and it’s like, ‘what else am I going to do with my life?’ You know, there’s plenty of other fighters out there for me to beat up on. You’ve got Dillian Whyte, Jarrell Miller, [Kubrat] Pulev, [Andy] Ruiz, [Luis] Ortiz, [Daniel] Dubois, [Joe] Joyce, there’s loads. There’s Efe Ajagba, the big Nigerian Olympian, there’s Tony Yoka the French Olympic gold medallist.”
