Tyson Fury insists if he can beat Oleksandr Usyk he can fulfill his dream of becoming a psychologist when he retires – The Sun
Tyson Fury plans to do a master’s degree in psychology – but only after unifying the heavyweight division.
The Gypsy King has announced his retirement from boxing after beating Deontay Wilder in their trilogy fight.
But he has apparently confirmed that he will come out of retirement to fight ‘Ukrainian dosser’ Oleksandr Usyk.
Usyk beat Anthony Joshua for the second time in Saudi Arabia over the weekend and is now in line for a unification bout with Fury.
Fury has previously claimed he will become a psychologist once he achieves everything he is aiming for in the ring.
Speaking in 2020, the Gypsy King said: “When I was a kid I dreamed of being the heavyweight champion of the world and everyone said to me, ‘it’s not gonna happen, it’s not gonna happen , It will not arrive ” .
“They were called dream killers. There are a lot of dream killers out there, even today they are still trying to crush my dreams.
“I dream of becoming a doctor, a psychologist. I want to get a master’s degree in psychology after I finish boxing.
“If I can become the undefeated, undisputed world heavyweight champion from a child, I can become a psychologist and get a master’s degree.
“Everything is possible.”
Fury has been very open about his own career-derailing mental health issues following his win over Wladimir Klitschko.
The 6ft 9in powerhouse has ballooned up to 27 stone during his battle with depression, alcohol and drug addiction.
But he proved to his fans that anything is possible as he bounced back to claim his place at the top of heavyweight boxing.
He now holds the WBC title after beating Deontay Wilder twice.
And he aims to add the rest of the belts to his collection that Usyk currently holds.
