Tyson Fury just earned one of the biggest paychecks of his entire life. In front of an attendance of almost ninety-thousand people, The Gypsy King fought former sparring partner Dillian Whyte on April 23 at Wembley. Following this epic battle in the history of British boxing, Fury hung his gloves and, as of now has retired from the game.

However, for some, it is still hard to consume that The Gypsy King is bidding goodbye. Before the event even went down, Paris Fury, wife of Tyson Fury, talked about hypothetical scenarios that might call The Gypsy King back.

So, for sure, I feel like retirement doesn’t mean that you’ve completely given up and you’re on the beach clicking your phone drinking a bottle of Corona. I feel he’s still ticking over and he’ll come back if the right fight is presented to him,” added Joshua.

Anthony Joshua firmly believes that Fury can return. As much as his words fill fight fans with hope, they poke the retired champion to announce a comeback. Of course, who would not want a fight against Fury who has the potential to bring in over ninety-thousand people?
