That fight saw him earn a whopping £150million as he remains undefeated. But he has confirmed that he’s already training like a ‘lunatic’ and will come out of retirement for mega pay to fight Joshua.

Fury, whose promoter Frank Warren is honing a secret deal said as per SunSport:

“I will be back in the ring 100 per cent, just like in the movie when Jerry Maguire shouted, ‘Show me the money!’
“If anyone can show me the money then it’s Frank Warren. I call him the Magic Man and we are going to make some big, big things happen.”

The 33-year-old also narrated how he has been managing his boxing training with his domestic routine at home. He added via The Guardian:

“I train twice a day, every day, running in the morning and weights and boxing in the evening. I have been enjoying myself, running a minimum of four miles and maximum six and I am sparring and boxing.
“I am a prize fighter and I do fight for prizes but it is going to cost if you want me. Until then, the Big Mac is going to stay in Morecambe, training like a lunatic, getting haircuts and shaves on Mondays, car valets on Tuesdays, bin days on Wednesdays and training every day.”

Anthony Joshua signs partnership deal with DAZN

Meanwhile, Sports Brief earlier reported that heavyweight boxer Anthony Joshua has secured a lucrative deal with streaming service DAZN, as he prepares for his crucial rematch against Oleksandr Usyk this summer.

The England boxer of Nigerian descent has fought on Sky Sports for the entirety of his career, with his promoter Eddie Hearn previously having an exclusive deal with the broadcaster to stage his fights.

The new agreement means all of Joshua’s future bouts will now be broadcast in the UK on DAZN, likely via the pay-per-view (PPV) platform the media company launched last year.
