Tyson Fury, the undefeated WBC heavyweight champion, is not just an in-ring attraction for the boxing fans. His moves away from the squared circle also garner attention, and Tyson Fury never hesitates to showcase his championship mindset.

While he seems to hunt for victory inside the squared circle, a table tennis game would not change Fury’s perspective over his performance. That said, he recently played a game of table tennis with a reporter and departed with a win.

Andre McCart, IFL TV’s journalist, faced Tyson Fury in the match and the light-hearted contest saw Fury dominate. While the reporter made a few mistakes, ‘The Gypsy King’ continued giving him trials. However, Fury flexed his A-game and bagged the win by the end.

What’s next for Tyson Fury?

Following a lopsided 7 round TKO over Deontay Wilder in February 2020, Tyson Fury hasn’t fought yet. He was rumored to face Wilder in a trilogy, but the matchup faded away with some minimal turmoils.

Meanwhile, talks are in progress for an ultimate heavyweight title unification clash between WBC champion, Fury, and unified champion, Anthony Joshua. Although it is still not confirmed, the title unification heavyweight battle is most likely to be next for ‘The Gypsy King’.

Boasting a record of 30-0-1, Fury is one of the biggest stars of boxing at this stage. As his fight against Joshua can see him earn up to $100 million in one night, it is safe to say that ‘The Gypsy King’ has a lucrative future ahead.

Apart from that, he also has an unparalleled legacy at stake. So, we can see him bring some ‘high-voltage’ action when he steps through the ropes.

His hunger hasn’t diminished, which was evident in an impromptu table tennis match, and fans will hope it is the same when he straps on his gloves too.
