Fury could quit boxing

Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury revealed he is struggling to get motivated and could walk away from the sport altogether. 

Fury upset Wladimir Klitschko in Germany in November, taking all his belts in the process.

The Ukrainian then activated his rematch clause and the duo are set to meet again in mid-year. However, the controversial Englishman is battling to get in the right mental state.

“I’m struggling to get motivated,” quipped the undefeated fighter on BBC.

“I could walk away. I could just sail into the sunset unbeaten with all the belts and live a normal life.

“All that I would be boxing for is money and I always thought to myself I never want to let sport become about money.”

“I’ve accomplished a dream. It’s about how much motivation I have to keep going on.

“There is life after boxing and I don’t know what I’m going to do at the moment. I haven’t even cemented I am going to fight in a rematch.”

Fury added that his win over Klitshcko will remain the highlight of his career, no matter what he goes on to achieve.

“If I win another 50 fights, it’s not going to mean as much,” added the 27-year-old

“I believe I’ll be frozen in 2015 for the next 40 years, or however long I live for. Nothing’s going to outdo that achievement.”
