WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has rejected the idea of retiring from the sport in the near future.
Fury came out on social media and mapped out a five-fight plan for his career.
The 'Gypsy King' is scheduled to face WBO, IBF, IBO, WBA champion Oleksandr Usyk in an undisputed fight on May 18 in Saudi Arabia. Fury indicates that a second fight with Usyk will happen. There is talk of a two-way rematch clause, with either man capable of exercising that option.
Then Fury plans to target a potential two-fight series with British rival Anthony Joshua. And ultimately, he intends to pursue a rematch with former UFC champion Francis Ngannou.
"I keep hearing talk of people saying I should retire or I'm going to retire soon or whatever," Fury said on social media. "I ain't retiring -- I've got two fights with Usyk for the undisputed, twice.
"Then I'm going to fight AJ at least once, maybe twice, if there's a rematch - if he wants one after the first battering I give him. Then I'm going to fight Ngannou again. That's just the start. There's five fights for you to whet your appetite. I ain't going nowhere. I'm 35 years old and in the prime of my life."
In most recent ring appearance, Fury struggled to win a razor-close ten round split decision over Ngannou in October of 2023.
The fight with Usyk was initially set down to take place on February 17, but it was pushed back last week after Fury sustained a severe cut above his right eye. Fury suffered the injury from an accidental elbow during a sparring session.
