Tyson Fury, the WBC heavyweight champion, is presently on vacation in Florida with his family as he prepares for a busy 2022.

Fury last fought in October against Deontay Wilder, in what many believed to be one of the best heavyweight battles in recent years.

In the eleventh round of their trilogy battle at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, he had to withstand two knockdowns to defeat Deontay Wilder by knockout.

Wilder was knocked down three times during the fight, for a total of five knockdowns in the fight.

During an interview with Daily Mail, Fury said

This will take years off our lives. We will feel the effects of this in our later days. I fear only God.

Never worry about fighting any man. And I always expect every heavyweight to carry a massive punch. So no. But I was aware that there was a champion with the special capacity to switch off any human with just one hit.

Perhaps the heaviest puncher of all time. Some boxers have fantastic chins. But my powers of recovery are unique. Deontay’s not the first to put me down.

But like the others, he’s found out that I always get up. Always. I am proud to have shared a very special time with Deontay in the ring which has brought us both more fame and respect.

Neither of us will ever forget being part of what people are calling one of the greatest of all heavyweight fights. Nor will the people who watched it. Coming through that fire has been good for me as a person. And for Deontay.

This was an educating journey for both of us. We survived and for that I thank God. As I do for everything in my life. My wife, my family, my mental health, my boxing.

Fury would like to spend some time with his old rival to bury the hatchet and ruminate on their trilogy of encounters now that Wilder is contemplating retirement from the sport.

I hear he’s beginning to think about retiring. If so we need to spend time together. We didn’t take in the enormity of it all after our third fight. I still don’t think we realize everything it means.

Maybe, in years to come, we will be sitting with our family and friends and reminisce quietly about the fight of our lives.
