Tyson Fury has admitted not only that he plans to stay in the boxing ring for a long time to come, but also that he is finished with making appearances in WWE.
‘I’m looking to sign another 10-fight deal after this, so I don’t know, I’m going to put my feelers out there and see who I can get the best deal off for another 10 fights,’ said Fury, speaking to ESPN.
Fury previously signed a multi-fight deal with Top Rank back in 2019 and is currently preparing to fight former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou on Oct. 28 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Following that match he is already set for a undisputed heavyweight championship fight with Oleksandr Usyk.
‘What else is there? I retire, plenty of money, plenty of achievement, whatever — 35 [years old]. What am I going to do? … This makes me f—ing happy fighting,’ said Fury.

The ‘Gypsy King’ previously competed in a WWE match against Braun Strowman in 2019
‘This is all I’ve ever done and all that’s ever made me happy. So it’d be stupid now to walk away from it when I’m making millions of dollars and getting loads of joy from it as well.’
Some had wondered if Fury’s post-boxing career would involve him doing more work in the WWE seeing that he has already wrestled a high-profile Pay-Per-View match for the company against Braun Strowman in 2019, but the man known as the ‘Gyspy King’ said a future in professional wrestling is not in his cards.
‘WWE’s too hard for me,’ Fury said. ‘Boxing is much easier than WWE. It’s very physical and taxing on the body. WWE, getting slammed on the floor and all that sort of stuff. I’d rather move around the ring and dodge punches.’
He also mentioned that his injury history and ability to avoiding worsening those issues also has factored in his decision to stay in the boxing ring rather than more time in the wrestling ring.
‘I’m going to be prone to injuries, you know, elbows, knees, shoulders, ankles, everything that can go wrong on somebody usually at our age now that goes wrong,’ he added.
