World-renowned boxing heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has signalled that his foray into professional wrestling may end. Known for his indomitable spirit and charisma in and out of the boxing ring, Fury has attracted a global following across disciplines.
However, in a recent exclusive interview with ESPN, the World Council Boxing Heavyweight Champion firmly stated that his primary focus remains his boxing legacy, thereby shutting down speculation about his return to WWE. Fury is not new to WWE; he made a splash nearly four years ago in a headline feud with Braun Strowman that culminated in his wrestling debut at WWE's Crown Jewel event on October 31, 2019.
Tyson Fury emerged victorious in that about, defeating Strowman by countout. His subsequent appearances in WWE have only fueled anticipation about his wrestling future. Most recently, he made a surprise interruption at WWE Clash At The Castle on September 3, 2022, thwarting Austin Theory's Money in the Bank cash-in during the Roman Reigns vs Drew McIntyre match.
Fury's WWE Farewell
Yet despite the allure of the squared circle, Fury is closing that chapter. The boxing champion, known as "The Gypsy King," cited the gruelling physical demands of professional wrestling as a primary factor in his decision.
"WWE's too hard for me," he admitted. "Boxing is much easier than WWE. It's very physical and taxing on the body. WWE is getting slammed on the floor and all that sort of stuff. I'd rather move around the ring and dodge punches." As he prepares for an electrifying crossover dream fight against former UFC Heavyweight Champion Francis Ngannou slated for October 28, the message is clear: Tyson Fury is doubling down on his boxing career.
With numerous challengers vying for his heavyweight title, he seems intent on cementing his legacy where he made his name—inside the boxing ring. This revelation may disappoint some WWE fans, but for boxing enthusiasts, it signals an undivided commitment from one of the sport's most dynamic figures.
Given the upcoming about against Ngannou and the allure of other high-profile fights in the boxing world, Tyson Fury's attention appears unswervingly set on mastering his original craft.
