British heavyweight Tyson Fury has shown off his new shirt which is covered by faces of boxing legends, including himself as he prepares for his Las Vegas debut against German Tom Schwarz on 15 June.
The 30-year-old, who makes his fourth comeback fight following three years out of the ring, admitted that he made a promise to himself as a child that he would only step foot in Vegas if there was a fight on the line. And he is ready to make the most of it.
Wearing a tailored shirt covered in legendary heavyweight icons including Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, George Foreman and himself.
Fury, who beat Wladimir Klitschko to win the WBA, IBF and WBO world titles in 2015 and claims to be the lineal champion, said he loves boxing more than ever and lives his life like a training camp. “It is something I am enjoying as an athlete, a person and boxer, I really love my job at the minute, more than I have ever done before. I used to think boxing was a chore, a job to go to.”
“I trained hard for a fight and then put a ton of weight back on. Now I enjoy what I do, keep fit even when I am not boxing. I almost live my life as a routine training camp now.”
Fury is unbeaten in his 28 fights, while 24-year-old Schwarz – ranked number two in the world with the WBO – has 24 wins from 24 bouts.
