Tyson Fury has vowed to pay Piers Morgan and his wife Paris £1million if he fights in a professional boxing match again.
The WBC champion retired after knocking out Dillian Whyte in a title defence in April. But he reignited talks of a return against the winner of Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk earlier this week in a reunification bout.
Fury has since backtracked on his comments on Good Morning Britain, where he claimed he would only return if he was offered £500million. And he was lured into an expensive bet by Piers Morgan on his Talk TV show on Wednesday night.
Morgan said: “How about if you do fight again you have to give me a million pounds.”
Fury immediately replied with: “How about that’s a deal,” to which a surprised Morgan said: “Really?”
Wife Paris then asked: “Can I join in on that?” which Fury responded to with: “If I’m getting half a billion, I’ll give you a million quid and I’ll give Paris one too. Yep 100%”
Do you think Tyson Fury will actually fight the winner of Joshua vs Usyk? Let us know in the comments section.
It came after Paris voiced concerns about her husband actually being able to hang up his gloves for good. She admitted she asked him to stop fighting as far back as his first clash with Deontay Wilder, after which Fury has gone on to fight five times.
She told Morgan: “I'd like him to retire. But there's something in the back of my mind saying he's itching for another fight. It's there – woman's instinct, there's something still calling him out there.
“As the wife, I just look and wonder ‘are you done?’ I hope he is. I hope he chooses another path but honestly, I think there is a question mark there.'
“After the first fight with Deontay Wilder I begged him not to fight again. And then he fought again and now he's saying he's quit again. I just don't think it's the end. I just wonder. You never know, we'll wait and see.”
