Tyson Fury claims he was ‘bored with retirement’ and has confessed that no one really believed he would stay out of the ring while plotting a massive clash with fellow Briton Anthony Joshua.

The reigning world heavyweight boxer announced his retirement from the sport after knocking out Dillian Whyte at Wembley in April earlier this year.

Fury held onto his retirement for a few months until Anthony Joshua’s defeat to Oleksandr Usyk, when he announced he would be coming out of retirement to fight the Ukrainian.

But the following week, his mind changed – largely due to Usyk’s end-of-season injury – when he gave Joshua the chance to fight him.

The Gypsy King offered Joshua a fight in Cardiff in November with a 40 percent share of the purse.

Joshua’s camp has accepted the offer of the fight against Fury on the condition that the fight be postponed to December, a date touted as December 17.

The willingness to take on Joshua and Usyk came when he has now revealed that he was bored during his five-month absence from the sport.

He told The Ring Magazine: I was bored in retirement. I had five months out of the ring and changed my mind. Nobody believed me, right?

‘It was amazing. But nothing will ever compare to being a heavyweight world champion. I like boxing. I absolutely love it.’

Fury believes he would be the favorite in the fight against Joshua and the beltless heavyweight fighter would now be in a ‘win-win’ situation.

He said: ‘He would be a huge underdog, so he’s in a win-win situation.

“If everyone expects him to lose and he beats me, then he’s back on top and bigger than ever.

“And if he’s lost three, what difference does it make if he loses four?

“Four defeats means nothing. Look at Derek Chisora, he has suffered 12 losses and he is still fighting.”

Joshua has lost his last two fights after back-to-back battles against Usyk. His other defeat in his career came when he lost to Mexican Andy Ruiz Jr in 2019.
