A few days back, the news of Tyson Fury testing positive for COVID-19 broke the morale of the fans as they were eager to see him in an action against Deontay Wilder. The rivalry between the two was set to end on July 24th. Unfortunately, since the ongoing pandemic came in like a dark cloud, it halted the progress of this fight, thus pushing it further.

Fury, who hammered Wilder in their second meeting in February 2020, was eager to secure another win. Also, he was already involved in some extensive training regimes for this trilogy. However, he’ll have to hit the reset button and train for war for another day later in the year.

Fury became a hot topic in the fight universe as he went out for a stroll in Las Vegas. Royalty Exotic Cars shared a picture of ‘The Gypsy King’ on its social handle, in which fans can see the WBC champion posing with his fists up. At first glance, he certainly looked fine in terms of physical stature.

However, this left the fans angered and they couldn’t hold themselves from taking a jibe at Fury.

A fan wrote on his Twitter handle, “Covid positive Tyson Fury out and about car shopping in Vegas? What in the hell is going on.”

Another fan wrote, “Not that this can be gauged entirely from a picture, but he doesn’t LOOK sick either. Like pale, or flushed or anything”

“Lol fury delayed the fight to buy a exotic car,” wrote another boxing lover.

Not only these, but many others expressed their notions on this sighting.

Is Tyson Fury really ready for a fight against Deontay Wilder?

Fury, in his last two meetings with the Alabama native, showed the world what he’s made of. That said, based on his training clips and his confidence in his interviews, he seemed extremely ready for the third war against Wilder.

However, the above picture is undoubtedly staggering for fans and fighters around the world, as they would have expected Tyson Fury to be resting and recovering. Moreover, the sight of the WBC champion car shopping was something no one would have expected.
