Dismissing the issue of retirement, Tyson Fury announces five duels against three boxers

Jakarta - British boxer Tyson Fury dismissed rumors of retirement by announcing five duels against three boxers that will take place throughout 2024, AFP reported on Thursday.

The WBC heavyweight boxing champion will step into the ring to fight fellow British boxer Anthony Joshua twice this year. Fury will also fight Oleksandr Usyk twice, and once against Francis Ngannou.

"I keep hearing talk of people saying I have to retire or I will retire soon or whatever," via social media Instagram, while showing a photo of the stitch scar above his eye temple, Wednesday (7/2) local time.

"I'm not going to retire. I had two fights with Usyk for the undisputed, twice," he said.

Fury, who has never fought Anthony Joshua, added: "I will fight AJ (Joshua) at least once, maybe twice, if there is a rematch or if he wants it after the first fight, I am ready to give it to him."

Fury has won 34 fights with one draw since turning professional in 2008.

His last fight was a controversial victory over former UFC mixed martial arts world champion Francis Ngannou, who was making his professional boxing debut.

At that time, Ngannou managed to knock Fury out, but it was Fury who took home the win with a split points decision.

"I will fight Ngannou again. That's just the beginning. There are five fights. I'm not going anywhere. I'm still 35 years old and at the peak of my career," said Tyson Fury.


Revealing UEFA’s position on Russia’s possible move to the AFC

The Secretary General of the Russian Football Federation, Maxim Mitrofanov, revealed the position of the European Football Association (UEFA) on Russia's possible move to the Asian Confederation.
In statements reported by the “Sports Express” website, Mitrofanov said that the European Football Association does not want to allow Russia to move to Asia.

He stated: "They told us: We are not ready to let you leave."

He continued: “After some time passed, they declared unequivocally (Russia’s loss is what we do not want).

Mitrofanov pointed to the positive position of UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin, who personally does not want Russia to move.

Mitrofanov described the issue of Russia's return to the international arena as a purely political problem.

The Secretary General of the Russian Federation said that during the negotiations, football federations do not oppose Russia’s appearance in international tournaments, but after consulting with governments, their position changes.

On February 28, 2022, the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) and UEFA suspended Russian national teams from participating in international tournaments and European competitions, and the Russian national team lost the opportunity to compete in order to reach the finals of the World and European Championships.
