“The Gypsy King” is set to defend his crown against “The Body Snatcher” on Saturday Night. “I’m walking away”, win, lose or draw.
Tyson Fury is full of surprises. One of the most prolific boxers of our generation, Fury is a true champion inside and outside of the ring. A true entertainer with the skills to back up his gift of gab.
Fury vs. Whyte
The champ is set to defend his title against top contender Dillian “The Body Snatcher” Whyte on Saturday.
The bout takes place at Wembley Stadium in London and is expected to garner 85-95,000 in attendance. This will be Fury’s first fight back in the UK since 2018.
Fury is coming off dominant back to back wins over Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder. Solidifying his place atop the Heavyweight division.
WBC interim title holder Dillian Whyte has heavy hands and a great boxing pedigree. He finally gets his long deserved shot to touch the ring. This is a better fight than the odds make it seem. Whyte is coming off a redemption KO over Alexander Povetkin.
Win, Lose or Draw
Tyson Fury is adamant that this will be his final walk. Speaking to Adam Smith of Top Rank, Fury stated “I’m walking away. I have nothing to prove to nobody. I’ve done what I had to do. That’s it. Win, lose, or draw on Saturday night, we put up a good fight and we go home. That’s it.”
Fury also added, “The great Julius Caesar said, ‘There will always be somebody else to fight.’ There will be. There’s a million young guys coming up. I can’t go on forever, just like Wladimir (Klitschko) couldn’t, Joe Louis and Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis before me. Every good dog has his day and that’s it.”
All Hail The Gypsy King 🤴
As disappointing this might for us to hear, I’d be happy to see him ride off into the sunset. Anthony Joshua’s aura of invincibility is long gone. And if no other match ups excite The Gypsy King, he should walk.
If this is the last showing for Fury, I expect nothing less than what we’ve seen. A slick boxer with immaculate defense. And a much improved bully style since training with SugarHill Steward.
