Tyson Fury is a man of principle who happens to be very good as a boxer. While his principles were tested during the darkest time of his life, he has come out on the other side and become a champion once again.

Fury has been clear about what motivates and drives him for a long time. It has never been about the money, something Anthony Joshua found out quite abrasively.

Joshua asked Fury to switch management, inviting him to his agency to maximize his star potential. Fury seemed very slighted at that, telling everyone that he will smash AJ’s face.

Fury is currently managed by MN2S, an international booking, and talent agency. They boast of an impressive roster with the likes of Antonio Conte, Chris Eubanks Jr., and many live musicians from across the world.

However, they are in no way an agency dedicated to promoting boxers, having a wide clientele.

Tyson Fury is easily the biggest name in boxing right now. However, you can always be bigger than what you think you are. Fighters like Conor McGregor are a testament to the same. But Fury evidently never cared about being the biggest star. He has always focused on being the best inside the ring.

Despite that, it doesn’t mean you have to trade one for the other. Fury has no interest in the material gain he can get from his position in the world, he seems more content on getting results. However, that doesn’t mean Fury would settle for less than what he deserves if he and AJ were to meet.
