Tyson Fury backtracks from retirement talk

Tyson Fury appears to be demonstrating manic behavior.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

Shortly after announcing to the world that he was done with boxing and retiring, Tyson Fury took to Twitter to follow that up with a couple of statements that expressed the exact opposite sentiment.

Whatever you make of all this, it seems pretty clear to me that he's displaying some manic behavior which would be indicative of the mental issues which forced him out of his scheduled rematch with Wladimir Klitschko. His mind seems to be quite all over the place and speaking simply as a person with common decency, I hope whatever issues he has receive their proper attention.

In the meantime, it's looking increasingly clear that the heavyweight champion will soon become a former one, with his world titles likely to be stripped from him.
