Tyson Fury Has Three Fights Left
Former unified heavyweight champion Tyson “Gyspy” Fury (29-0-1, 20ko) is always just a punchline away from a social media platinum article. While focusing on the upcoming blockbuster rematch with WBC champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder, the always-vocal boxer took to social media to clap back at promoter Lou DiBella.
DiBella was promoting his promising heavyweight prospect, hard-punching 2016 Olympian Bakhodir Jalolov (6-0, 6ko). The Tweet prompted a little back-and-forth with the self-proclaimed lineal champion. The New York promoter would then poke a little jab at the former unified champion.
Like everything in the social media universe, the reply from the charismatic former unified champion should raised some serious eyebrows.
This is where it just got real.
Fury is right about not waiting around for the undefeated prospect to be built up to the championship level. However, looking deeper, there is a time frame that the 31-year-old British fighter has set before leaving the sport.
Furthermore, this means that win or lose in the rematch against the WBC champion, Fury realizes that the mileage is wearing down the tread on those old boxing tires.
Looking at the heavyweight landscape, there are still plenty of good fights that can be made featuring the British boxer. The former unified champion is excellent at marketing himself. In 2019, teaming up with the Top Rank organization marked a great job building his marketable profile.
Fury is looking at the front door, and with that being said, be on the lookout for some major moves being made in 2020 before the Gypsy King hangs up the gloves again.
