‘The Gypsy King’ Tyson Fury is the reigning WBC world champion and boasts an undefeated professional record of 33-0-1. Fury’s charismatic nature has garnered him a massive following, but it’s ultimately his ability to back up his brash trash talk that has kept him in the limelight.
Tyson Fury is the biggest name in heavyweight boxing right now, and arguably the biggest name in the sport overall.
Tyson Fury is set to take on Francis Ngannou on October 28 in a crossover clash for the ages, before he turns his attention to Oleksandr Usyk, who he is expected to face later this year.
Ahead of his clash with ‘The Predator’ this month, Fury was interviewed by former professional soccer star Rio Ferdinand for TNT Sports. ‘The Gypsy King’ opened up about the mindset he maintains in order to stay undefeated, and to continue finding success in both boxing and life.
Tyson Fury said this:
“What separates champions from greats is mentality. I’m never happy with where I am in my life, I’m never happy with winning the world title, or doing a trilogy. I’m not happy with goals, like, I hit a target but I’m always looking for one better. It never makes me fulfilled, and whatever I’ve done – at the beginning it was amateur boxing, I wanted to be ABA champion. Senior ABA champion? That is unbelievable. When I did it, it was like, ‘No this isn’t what I want.'”
Tyson Fury continued:
“British champion, that ain’t good enough. I want to be world champion, that’s not good enough. I want to lose it all and comeback again, that ain’t good enough. So I’m obsessed with chasing greatness.”
