On Monday, Britain’s world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury announced on Twitter that his boxing career is over, but later, he had a change of heart and said he was ‘here to stay’.
Tweets of Fury made a buzz over the Internet, especially on his take about how his career in boxing made him. He said on Twitter that “Boxing is the saddest thing I ever took part in,” before claiming it was “all a pile of shit”. In the same tweet, he then apparently hung up his gloves: “I’m the greatest, & I’m also retired, so go suck a dick, happy days”.
Apparently, hours later, he had to change his decision and said he was just showing what the media is like. “Hahahaha u think you will get rid of the GYPSYKING that easy!!! I’m here to stay. #TheGreatest just shows u what the Medea are like. Tut tut,” he wrote on Twitter.
In a report by The Guardian, Peter Fury, the uncle and trainer of Tyson, confirmed on Sunday that the boxer has been receiving professional help for issues. He also shared that Tyson was ‘almost at breaking point’ as the reason for the medical help.
The boxing star Fury was said to defend his titles against Wladimir Klitschko in July but he pulled out due to ankle injury. It was rescheduled for this month but Tyson pulled out again a day for an unknown medical reason.
It was reported recently by ESPN that Tyson failed a drug test after a random urine test. He was tested positive for the substance benzoylecgonine, a compound found in cocaine.
As per the rematch scheduled this month, Tyson pulled out after having the drug test where he tested positive.
