‘The Gypsy King’ Tyson Fury tested positive for the deadly Covid-19 a few days back. This news shook the entire fight fraternity to the core. But a couple of days back, Fury, who was seen taking a stroll in Las Vegas, seemed fit and fine. Although the British boxer seemed alright, the boxing fans were still left disheartened because they wished to see his trilogy with Deontay Wilder come to fruition on July 24.

Recently, Fury’s father, John Fury, gave his take on this full controversy.

Speaking to Boxing Social, he said, “I can’t comment because I just don’t know. It’s bizarre, always bizarre. I made a video a few months ago explaining why I felt about the job. My feelings ain’t changed. The devil’s playground, where he’s at there now, anything can happen. Nothing surprised me over there.”

Will inactivity hamper Tyson Fury by any means for this trilogy?

Fury hasn’t stepped inside the ring since his last meeting with Wilder in February 2020. That said, he’s unquestionably developed some ring rust.
