Tyson Fury makes U-turn over retirement and reveals he is ‘100 percent going to fight again’
‘Show me the money!’: Tyson Fury makes a dramatic U-turn after retirement, revealing he’s ‘going to fight 100% again’ for the right price, with a massive heavyweight unification in the pipeline
- Tyson Fury said he was retiring after knocking out Dillian Whyte in a domestic match
- But the heavyweight superstar has now admitted he will reverse the decision
- Fury said ‘I’ll be back in the ring 100 percent’ but only for the right price
- He can take on the winner of Anthony Joshua’s clash with Oleksandr Usyk
Tyson Fury has made a dramatic change in his boxing future, confirming that he will be ‘100 per cent fighting again’, if the price is right.
Fury made the decision to hang up his gloves after knocking out Dillian Whyte in front of a packed Wembley crowd in April.
Many had doubts about the credibility of his claim and they have been proven correct, with the gypsy king already talking about a return to action.

Fury expected to face the winner of Oleksandr Usyk’s clash with Anthony Joshua
He told Queensberry Promotions: ‘We have very exciting news coming up. I think the world has been waiting for a plan of action.
‘Last week we had a nice Italian in London and a long talk about everything.
“I’ll be 100 percent back in the ring, just like in the movie when Jerry Maguire ‘Show Me The Money!’ called out.

“If anyone can show me the money, it’s Frank Warren. I’ll call him the Magic Man and we’re going to make some big, big things happen.”
Sportsmail previously revealed that Fury is in negotiations to defeat the winner of Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk in Saudi Arabia in December for the undisputed world heavyweight title.
The Middle Austria is poised to invest even more extravagantly in the Gypsy King’s return from a brief retirement for a spectacle they consider to be ‘the next Rumble In The Jungle’.
Joshua is about to take on Usyk in their highly anticipated rematch on August 20. Usyk defeated AJ to claim his WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO titles.
Fury says the money must be good to come back for a reunion fight
Fury stated that he was “set for good and ready to dedicate my time to my family,” but it was always likely that he would be tempted back into the ring.
He continued: “If this middleweight knocks out this bodybuilder, there will only be one man to pick this absolute circus.
“What I would say to the people who want this fight to take place is, you better have a big checkbook.
Because taking the big GK out of retirement to redeem this country – again – it’s going to cost money.
“I’m a prize fighter and I fight for prizes, but it’s going to cost me if you want me to do a mission on this middleweight and show what a real heavyweight does to them.
“And that will be expensive, they need deep pockets and then we can talk.
“But NOT before the fight between Usyk and Joshua takes place first, because before that it makes no sense.”
The Gypsy King could become the undisputed world heavyweight champion
Fury added: “And if Frank makes a deal with the Saudis, hopefully he can give me free fuel for life because I spend a fortune on petrol and diesel every day.
Frank and I have something spectacular coming up, but it’s not about Usyk or Joshua right now.
“I will make a decision on this, but I only fought three months ago.
“I wouldn’t fight until October, November, December anyway.”
Fury has spoken of a potential showdown with UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou, who is at odds over a new deal with the MMA promotion.
If he decides to become a free agent by the end of the year, a high-profile event with Fury may be on the agenda.
