LONDON — World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury was struggling for motivation and could quit boxing, the controversial fighter told the BBC on Thursday.
The 27-year-old Briton, who stunned Vladimir Klitschko to claim the world heavyweight crown with a points win in Germany in November, may even hang up his gloves before a rematch scheduled for May or June.
“I’m struggling to get motivated. I could walk away. I could just sail into the sunset unbeaten with all the belts and live a normal life.”
Fury (25-0) said he would rather spend more time with his family than chase money or try to secure a legacy.
“All that I would be boxing for is money and I always thought to myself I never want to let sport become about money.
“It’s about how much motivation I have to keep going on.”
