Tyson Fury had more stories, as a meeting with Jason Statham showed that the heavyweight division was heading to Hollywood earlier this year in the Vance Diary edition.
Somewhere all night he lost his shoes, his mouthpiece was at home, there was no headguard, and he didn’t care about bandages. No one shot it, no one made songs and dances, it was like the afternoon of the 50’s. The ring had a new kid, a fighting pro, and a hype kid, who had a hard and hard sparring session with Huey Fury. He was dangerous, he wanted it. At a glance, Tyson Fury forgot his shoes, shields, bandages and headguards and found old gloves. “I had to do, that was what I was doing … and did I say 26 stones? No matter what you weigh, you won’t lose.”
Spar was the darkest of his miserable days, with a 13 pint lager sitting in his system. I think this explains the loss of shoes. It was a classic Fury story that gradually improved with age.
The kid in the ring that afternoon Daniel Dubois And [on August 29] At BT Studio Fury was there for his latest fight. Although it was a rigorous business deal in the ring on Saturday night, Dubois’s true boxing education was primarily done in the sparring ring. It all started with hundreds of gigabytes at Sheffield’s GB camp with Anthony Joshua, Joe Joyce and Fraser Clark. It’s been going on ever since, and the round with Huey is part of the story. Rounds with Tyson are usually not added to the list. Fury had to think about that afternoon in the ring. “Daniel has the utmost respect for Fury,” said a witness who is a member of Dubois’s touring party.
“I will retire when he becomes the champion,” Fury said at the end of last Saturday’s fight. It was a moment of truth lost in the evening of a quality Fury statement. He was in an interesting overdrive with his “duster” for the fist story. He looks like a real puzzle when asked if his duster may have knocked out Wilder. On a Las Vegas night, there were many people asking the same question, not just Deontay Wilder’s business.
His appearance at BT Studio was Fury’s first suitable boxing cameo since his victory against Wilder in February. It seems to belong to another time and place. He told me he wasn’t seeing a counterattack, but before I introduced him, I was watching every second some clips we performed as teasing. He tells the truth – there was a mysterious look on his face when his punch rolled Wilder all over the ring and down a few times. I saw many boxers lost the moment I watched the previous battle carefully. Rather than being surrounded by a dozen backslap buddies, they just stand or sit silently, incorporating what they have done. It was one of the happiness, Fury’s facial expression. He seemed impressed with himself.
“Before that fight, I knew exactly what I was trying to do,” he told me. “Sometimes you just have to fight, and that’s what I knew I had to do.” When did he know it would work? “In the 12th round of the first fight. I continued from the end of the first fight. I knew that was my plan.”
Inside BT Studio, away from the crowd, Fury relaxed. He was wearing a modern tailored suit covered with boxing icons, his body was ready to fight “now”, and at some point he was chatting with Frank Warren. They were calling Sherry Finkel, who works with Wilder. When I asked Finkel what I said, “Find me a venue and make me a venue,” he told me. It’s clear that finding a venue is an important and elusive part of achieving the third battle. There’s Wilder, there’s Fury, there’s money, there’s a date, but the ring is still in the clouds. “Now everyone is working on it.”
He talked about wrestling, gym addicts, big paperwork, other rivals, his training methods, his mental state, and great days with his family during the blockade. “I had no media commitment. It was only my family.” There were always a few Tyson Fury when it came to interviewing and pulling things out of him. His bad days are difficult days and his good days are great, but I like calm and personal ones. The story of taking off your shoes and the story of just laughing at the memory of the absurdity that happened.
Currently of interest from Hollywood, not a biography, he starred as an apprentice action hero. He met Jason Statham the day after the Battle of Dubois. Stasam was the ringside of Las Vegas for the Battle of Wilder – Stasam turned a decent diving career into box office. Fury doesn’t even think of being just a heavy, lurking guy in the background.
My fifth favorite British heavyweight is Nosher Powell, who played a thousand roles in movies and television. In credit, he was variously known as Knuckles, Mr. Knuckles, Hardman on the left, and Hardman on the right. He once rode a Laurence Olivier horse as a stunt double and fired 100 guns for Roger Moore at the age of 007. Why did you fire the gun? “Well, Log hated banging. That’s why he’s deaf now.” Nosher could also fight a slightly weird guy, and he would have loved Fury’s old-style method.
“Fury has it all,” Stasam told me that night in Las Vegas. “He is already a hero.”
Fury watched the fight with his friends in the BT studio, thumbs up the winners and losers, and laughed warmly. “This is what I like,” he said. And it looked like it.
Thank you for that, muddy.
