Tyson Fury wants to go to ‘Antarctica’ after defending Heavyweight titles

Posted by

Tyson Fury has said that he wants to travel the world after his next two fights.

Fury will face off against his old rival, Derek Chisora, on Saturday night at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium. This will be the third meeting between the two, with the Gypsy King winning both previous fights handily.

Fury was talking to the press ahead of his title defence and reminisced over the past few years.

“In the last seven years I had three years out due to my downfall, my mental health breakdown, and then I had just under two years out with Covid so just under five years. I have only had two years of activity in the last seven years, which is not great,” Fury said.

He expressed his interest in travelling around the world but only after he dispatches the next two contenders.

“After I beat Chisora and after I beat Oleksandr Usyk next year, I am going to try and go on a massive campaign all over the world.

“Emanuel Steward spoke to me about this years ago and said ‘wouldn’t it be good if a heavyweight champion of the world could go to places where no one else wants to go and get the Government to put the money up to put it on?’

“Like go to Antarctica, they have nothing else on there. Fire out places like one a month, a Tyson Fury roadshow, where were you for that? That is what I want to do. Frank (Warren) and Bob together could do that.”

Although Fury is tipped as the massive favourite against Chisora, a mouth-watering fight against Usyk could be a lot more competitive.

The Ukrainian made short work of Anthony Joshua in both of their fights and has demonstrated a technical ability that only the Gypsy King could match.
