You may recall that pretty recently, former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury indicated that he was done with boxing. The 29-year-old fighter hasn’t been in the ring since a November 2015 win over Wladimir Klitschko, his license is still suspended, and he’s had a lot of trouble outside of the ring.
But Fury is now indicating that he’ll be back, and that it’s Anthony Joshua that he’s gunning for if and when he does return to action:
"They call me 'the boomerang', I always come back. It's a fight [against Joshua] people want to see and an easy one for me with my boxing skills. ... I've really turned my life around and done a U-turn on everything and I'm feeling a lot better than I did before. I'm starting to get everything great again. I'm back enjoying the gym work and that's how it's supposed to be. I'm a long way from entering back in the ring but I'm on the right path."
Fury (25-0, 18 KO) and Joshua (19-0, 19 KO) would certainly be the biggest money fight possible in the heavyweight division, but there’s a lot to wonder about with Fury, namely where he’s really at physically and, more importantly, mentally going forward.
But if he does fight again, it’s absolutely Anthony Joshua that people will want to see him face.
