Tyson Fury’s father had threatened to not talk to him if he fought Deontay Wilder

A tough decision from his father did not make Tyson Fury give up his famous “crazy” personality.

John Fury, the father of the WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, recently said he threatened to never talk to his son if Tyson Furry dared to fight Wilder.

Tyson Fury returned to the ring in 2018, after more than three years fighting alcohol, drug addiction and depression that made him overweight and weighed 177 kg. Tyson Fury’s return journey is ups and downs enough to make a film in depth.

When he just returned, Tyson Fury quickly won 2 warm-up victories in just 2 months and then immediately entered the controversial draw with Deontay Wilder at the end of 2018. In that match, Tyson Fury despite being overwhelming, he was still seen by Deontay Wilder twice on the floor.

“Tyson came to me and said he was going to fight Wilder. I told him, if you do, Dad won’t talk to you until you die. Because you will be beaten up. Just lost more than 60kg in a few months, I’m not ready. I told him to quit that game, have a few warm-ups because he hasn’t reached its level yet. My strength is very weak, I can’t fight. And he told me that he was a martial artist, if he was beaten it wouldn’t be. He said” I’ll do what Joshua wouldn’t dare do. If he (Wilder) gradually has a child, it can’t be helped. The best will win” – Mr. John Fury shared.

Mr. John proudly: “Just that and the rest is history. It’s one of the greatest comebacks in history. Who can do that when you’ve been knocked down twice?”

Then, at the 2020 rematch, Tyson Fury took an overwhelming TKO win over Deontay Wilder. The new WBC heavyweight king is also expected to play Anthony Joshua in 2021.

Franchise champion – the new joke of WBC

If you’ve ever heard of franchised chains, franchised cafes, then with WBC, you’ll have a “Franchise Champion”.

Recently, WBC shocked the Boxing world by honoring the defending champion Canelo Alvarez with the new title: “Franchise Champion”. It would probably not be worth anything if WBC didn’t decide to bring Jermall Charlo from the position of interim champion to the official WBC champion – the position that belongs to Canelo Alvarez. It can be said that WBC has stripped Canelo Alvarez of the championship with a new title that makes no sense.

Franchise champion is a new initiative, a special position that WBC is for current world champion. Franchise champion is an outstanding martial artist who has achieved much success as well as devoted to Boxing.

The WBC side added: “With 2/3 of the votes agreed from the WBC board, WBC can assign a weight champion to each class. The franchise champion will benefit. and responsibility for WBC, the franchise champion will also hold many titles, and the upper house to compete for the championship of other organizations, as well as be able to take a position on the board. of WBC. WBC chose Alvarez for his achievements”.

WBC also said that this is not an unilateral decision of this organization, but it has received a consensus from Canelo’s side, regardless of this decision, Canelo from the position of having 3 championship belts. MBA (Super), WBC and IBF, currently only have 2 championship titles, namely WBA (Super) and IBF.

More importantly, the title of the franchise champion is also not in contention, meaning that Canelo will always be the WBC champion without having to defend his title. But with the new title more noble than the world championship, the bonuses of title competitions in WBC may also change significantly. Specifically, if a fighter defeated Canelo, WBC could promise them a world title match – a belt less valuable than the current Canelo franchise title.

This can be considered as a tricky and greedy game of WBC. Not only is the move to keep Canelo, cases like Andy Ruiz defeated Anthony Joshua and destroyed the entire sharing system, the organization’s broadcast communication will not happen to WBC, at least when Canelo is no longer Hold the championship belt.

The challengers around Canelo’s golden egg-laying chicken no longer had any reason to touch the franchise champion when Canelo gave up the WBC belt. No matter where you win or not, at CanCBC, Canelo is completely protected. Now at WBC, Canelo only has to pay attention to big games, matches that really benefit WBC.

To be fair, this is the move of WBC to hold Canelo in promoting the image of the organization. This is also a good move for Canelo when WBC also hinted that Canelo can hold important positions in the WBC organization. Meaning that even when retired, Canelo can affect Boxing to a certain extent.
