British boxing champion Tyson Fury has fired back at a question about his physique as he prepares to make his highly anticipated return to the ring. The WBC heavyweight world champion is scheduled to face UFC legend Francis Ngannou next month in what is being hailed as a monumental event in combat sports.
Absurd Question About His Physique
During an interview with Barstool, Fury was asked whether he plans to "get in shape" for his upcoming fight. The Gypsy King responded emphatically, stating that it was an "insulting" question to ask. He went on to explain that while other fighters strive for a muscular physique, he embraces his "dad bod" and believes in knocking out opponents regardless of his appearance. With his trademark confidence, Fury assured his fans that they can expect nothing short of a jaw-dropping performance from him.
This isn’t the first time Fury has faced criticism over his physical appearance. In the past, he has been accused of looking "out of shape" between fights. However, the British boxer has always dismissed these claims and proved his doubters wrong. After beating Dillian Whyte and Derek Chisora in 2022, Fury silenced his critics and reaffirmed his status as the WBC heavyweight champion.
Upcoming Fight and Boxing Debut
With a 10-month hiatus from the ring, Fury is eager to make a comeback and prove his dominance once again. His fight against Francis Ngannou on October 28 in Saudi Arabia will not put his WBC heavyweight title at stake. Despite this, the clash between the two iconic fighters has generated enormous attention and excitement within the combat sports community.
