TYSON Fury, world heavyweight boxing champion, does not seem to get enough motivation and threatened to quit boxing.
Fury, a controversial fighter bared his mind to the BBC on Thursday, February 4.
The 27-old Briton, who stunned Vladimir Klitschko to win the world heavyweight crown in Germany in November, last year, said he might hang up his gloves before facing the Ukrainian in a rematch scheduled for May or June.
“I’m struggling to get motivated,” he told the BBC radio. “I could walk away. I could just sail into the sunset unbeaten with all the belts and live a normal life.”
Fury has recently been drawing flak for his offensive comments about women, homosexuality and abortion late last year, said he would rather spend more time with his family than chase money or try to secure a legacy.
“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.”
Qatar and Abu Dhabi are reportedly among the five possible venues for the rematch but Fury said he had yet to start training for his next bout.
Fury previously threatened to retire after David Haye, a fellow Briton, twice withdrew from bouts against him through injury in 2013. (Reuters/NAN).
