Fury hits back at ‘insulting’ question ahead of boxing return against Ngannou
TYSON FURY has hit back at an “insulting” question about his physique ahead of his boxing return.
The WBC heavyweight world champion is set to take on UFC legend Francis Ngannou next month.
It will mark the first time Fury has fought in 10 months, having last entered the ring in December 2022.
Speaking to Barstool ahead of the bout, Fury was asked whether he will “ever get in shape” for a fight.
“Nope, never,” the Gypsy King snapped back. “That’s insulting to say that, ‘Get in shape’.
“All these fighters, they want to be like bodybuilders, ripped and that.
“But I always rocks the dad bod, bald head, fat, white as anything look absolutely disgusting with my top off and then when I knock out a good looking six pack it’s like, ‘What the f***, dude. What the f*** just happened?”
Fury has previously faced claims he looks “out of shape” between fights, including at the start of last year.
However, he later hit back at his critics and their fears over his physique before going on to beat Dillian Whyte and Derek Chisora in 2022.
The 10th round technical knockout defeat of Chisora last December was Fury’s last fight, but he remains the WBC heavyweight champion.

His belt will not be on the line against Ngannou, though, despite their clash being an official bout.
The pair are set to meet in the ring on October 28 in Saudi Arabia, with the former UFC heavyweight champion making his boxing debut.
