Will This Be The Last Fight For The “Gypsy King” Tyson Fury?

There has been a lot of speculation surrounding the “Gypsy King” Tyson Fury regarding this upcoming fight against Dillian Whyte this Saturday. All eyes will be pointed toward this Heavyweight bout taking place at Wembley Stadium in London. The question that has led the promotion of this fight, really, is that is this going to be the last time we see Fury step inside a boxing ring? Only 33, fans believe Fury still has a lot in the tank. But if this does end up being his swan song, boxing fans around the world should be thankful they got to witness greatness.

What a promo. That’s all.

Let’s start with all he has had to overcome to get back into the boxing world. We all know the story, Fury ballooned up well over 400 lbs, was a constant drinker and battled with mental health issues, even considered committing suicide. But Fury understood that not only was he living for himself, but he was also living for others as well. He went on a courageous journey to get back healthy, but also to get back into fighting shape because he knew he could still go out there and put on a show. To show the world he was the greatest Heavyweight boxer on planet earth. Fury off this story alone is enough to inspire people, but it is what he did after he got back into shape that has people talking.

After 31 months away from the sport he loved, Tyson Fury returned in June of 2018 against Sefer Seferi and finished him in four rounds. It was his first fight back since upsetting Wladimir Klitschko on points for three world heavyweight titles in November 2015. From June 2018 until now, the only blemish on his record was the famous split decision draw in the first fight against Deontay Wilder in December of 2018. Of course, we all remember the viral clip of that night.

Tyson Fury has dazzled fans all over the world with his incredible skills inside the ring, but the man can shoot one hell of a promo on the microphone. I can’t remember a boxer with better mic skills since Ali, and that isn’t to discredit any boxer since, but Fury is simply the best. He knows how to sell fights, and he uses snarky comebacks and witty banter to reel you in. Plus who doesn’t love a shit talker with a British accent?

I am not a huge boxing fan. Admittedly, I am much more into MMA than I am boxing. But I know a big deal when I see it, and I always make sure I know what is happening with Tyson Fury. I have seen him fight his last two fights, and I honestly wish I had started watching him fight earlier than this. Highlights on YouTube can only do so much. I am forever grateful for what Fury has done for the sport of boxing, and if this does prove to be his last fight, I am glad he gets to go out at home in England in front of his friends and family. If this is the end, we should all raise a glass to one of the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time and thank him for entertaining us all over the years. Thank you, Tyson.
