Tyson Fury has revealed he is starring in his own Netflix series which will begin filming next week.
The world heavyweight champion, 33, announced his retirement from boxing with a perfect 32-0 record after knocking out Dillian Whyte in brutal fashion back in April. And he is now looking to keep busy by agreeing a 10-part “fly-on-the-wall” docu-series with the streaming giant.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain on Wednesday (June 15), the Gypsy King revealed he has signed a contract which will see a Netflix film crew take to his Morecambe home in an attempt to get an insight into his fascinating life.
He told Richard Madeley and Susanna Reid: “I have just signed [a contract for] a 10-part documentary with Netflix.
“It is a fly-on-the wall documentary which we will start filming next week. That’s going to be fantastic as well and will keep me busy.”
Few people believe Fury will remain retired with even his wife and dad admitting they expect to see him in the ring again. And he claimed on Tuesday that he would be open to facing the winner of Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk, who face off in a rematch on July 23, for a hefty price.
Do you think Tyson Fury will make a professional return to boxing? Let us know in the comments section.
He said: "I will be back in the ring 100 per-cent, just like in the movie when Jerry Maguire shouted 'Show Me The Money! If anyone can show me the money then it's Frank Warren, I call him the Magic Man and we are going to make some big, big things happen.
"When this middleweight [Usyk] knocks out this bodybuilder [Joshua] there will only be one man to sort this absolute circus out. What I would say to the people who want this fight to happen is: you better have a big cheque book."
But the undefeated icon back-tracked just a day later on Good Morning Britain by saying he would only be open to exhibition fights. He went on to name Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis, and even Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson as potential exhibition match-ups.
Fury explained: “I am going to do some exhibition matches so not ‘real fights’. This is not professional boxing, this is pure entertainment nothing more nothing less.
“You aren’t there to win or lose, you’re there to put on a good show for fans. You can fight old timers, famous people, whoever you want.”
