Dealing with depression, alcohol addiction, and drug addiction, The Gypsy King had almost succumbed to the unfortunate perils that surrounded him. Yet, his warrior spirit called to him, and Fury paid heed.

Fury returned to the Boxing world with a bang and continued to keep his record blotless. He then met Deontay Wilder in December 2018 for a matchup that is considered to be one of the greatest of our generation.

The epic duel ended in a controversial draw. Both fighters gave in all they could for the complete length of 12 rounds. During that fight too, Fury rose up after being knocked down in the very last round. Truly, the spirit Fury holds is unmatchable.

Meanwhile, the draw between the two led to the result reading “unfinished business”. Well, the business remains unfinished no longer. Tyson Fury came back stronger than ever to fight Wilder in Las Vegas this Saturday. He truly seemed supernatural in the ring, and completely dominated the fight. He won via TKO and now holds the WBC World Heavyweight championship in addition to being the lineal champion of boxing.

What’s next for Tyson Fury?

Fury looks stronger, more agile and more determined than ever. At this point in time, there seems to be no one who can stop him. Thus, it only seems logical for Fury to further his legacy.

The most spoken-about possibilities at the moment are a title unification match with Anthony Joshua and a trilogy with Deontay Wilder. While the former will definitely add more glory to Fury’s name, the latter will be just what the boxing world wants. A final showdown to an epic in-ring rivalry. The final battle in a war of the best.

Yet, Fury’s father, John Fury feels that it is time for him to let boxing go. According to John, Tyson has been through enough in his life and must look forward to things other than boxing.
