“As a family, this was good for us,” said Fury ESPN. “We can take positive situations out of any negative situation because you spend a lot of time together. More time than I would have had if the lock had not been enabled.
“We did a lot of training together and everything. The family has come closer. ‘
Fury only needed seven rounds to dismantle Wilder in Las Vegas, and he thought he was contractually bound to have a trilogy fight with the Bronze Bomber when boxing returns to normal.

However, Anthony Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, has revealed that negotiations to settle an undisputed fight with Fury are officially underway.
“I’m not really positive,” Fury said when asked who he would prefer to fight with, “because none of these fights are really relevant right now, are they? Since there is no boxing, there is no sport, nothing. There is nothing to worry about. So to talk about boxing or dream fighting, you might as well fight past fighters because none of it is real. ‘
“I’m not really interested in boxing at the moment,” he said, “because the most important thing is to stay alive. There have been many pandemics throughout history that have killed many people. It has already killed many people.
This is bigger than me, this is bigger than boxing, bigger than sport. So when the world comes back to life, we’ll be talking about entertaining the customers and fans. ‘
