The ticking, clocking Tweet that Fury posted on Wednesday means that he’s considering of strolling away from the Joshua combat regardless of all the cash and acclaim he’ll get by taking it.
Sadly, Fury hasn’t confirmed that he’s the boss of the heavyweight division, and there’s quite a lot of doubt whether or not he’ll have the ability to make it out of his two fights with Joshua together with his conceal intact.
There’s a real chance that Fury’s profession might be within the dumpster after his two fights with Joshua (24-1, 22 KOs) in 2021, significantly if he will get knocked out in each of them.
You possibly can argue that Fury’s profession is likely to be as unhealthy off as Alexander Povetkin’s is correct now after his loss to Dillian Whyte. Regardless that it was just one loss, some really feel that Povetkin ought to retire.
If Fury will get knocked out twice by Joshua, it’s truthful to say that the followers can be saying that he’s “performed” and he ought to retire posthaste.

If you wish to be technical about it, Fury doesn’t price being the Ring Journal Championship standing for these 4 causes:
