Tyson Fury backs himself to reign again

By David Banner | Boxing | Published:

Tyson Fury vowed to get everything he wants from boxing following a special appearance at a charity event in Wolverhampton.

Former world heavyweight champ Tyson Fury fields questions last night – including from our man Joseph Masi.

The controversial fighter held a question and answer session at the Ramada Park Hotel last night to help raise funds for the DB Foundation – the charity launched by Wolves skipper Danny Batth.

Tyson’s appearance came just 24 hours after he was given two-year backdated ban for testing positive – meaning the former world heavyweight boxing champion is free to box again once he receives a licence – which is likely to be granted next month.

Fury previously held the WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight belts by famously beating Wladimir Klitschko.

And last night the boxer – who goes by the nicknames ‘The Mac and The Gypsy King’ said he couldn’t wait to step back into the ring with fight fans desperate to see him take on heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

“All anyone needs to know is The Mac is back baby, The Mac is back,” he said.

“I’m knocking out all bombs. All bombs are getting knocked out.

“All bombs, one after another they are going down.

“You heard it here first, I will get everything I want. You will all see, on whatever channel they show it on, that Tyson Fury was right. Yet again, Tyson was right.”


Fury said he hopes the first fight on his comeback will be in April or may next year. But he insisted his eyes are I feel fantastic. I feel very, very good. I’m training hard. I’m eating well.

“I feel very, very happy - I am over the moon,” he added.

“I am just looking forward to getting back in that ring. I’m losing weight very quickly and hopefully I will be out early next year, around April or May.

“Joshua isn’t top of the tree. I am the angel at the top of the Christmas tree. Everything is going to be on my time and on my say so. And everything I want I will get.”
