Speaking to Sky Sports, he said, “I can tell you this. He just said to us, I want to fight by March. I want to fight in March, you know that’s. And I think he really doesn’t care who he fights, and I saw him post on social media. He had a list of a bunch of guys that he wanted to take care of and how it was gonna go.”

After settling his feud with Wilder, Fury hinted at retirement multiple times. However, ‘The Gypsy King’ knows that he has a few exuberant opponents in the big division. If he beats them, he undoubtedly will cement his legacy.

That said, Fury might have dissed his retirement plans for now. He’s fully focused on getting a stern opponent for his 2022 boxing return. Among all the other names, ‘The Body Snatcher’ seems to be a frontrunner to lock horns with Fury. But will a fight between the two really come into existence?
