From inside the ring, Tyson Fury has already been on top of the world. However, when the WBC heavyweight champion puts down his gloves and steps out of it, he wants to step into the endless space.
The undefeated ‘Gypsy King’ is set to mark his 13th year of professional boxing, but Tyson Fury has already etched out his wish after his career and picks space travel as his post-retirement dream.
Since clinching the WBC and The Ring magazine belts back in February this year against Deontay Wilder, Fury is yet to step back into the ring with the rematch clause still hanging in limbo.
Meanwhile, the English pugilist has taken the time to pen his autobiography “The Furious Method”, where he opened up about his plans following boxing, which emphasises on becoming a space tourist.
Tyson Fury dreams of “floating through the cabin of a spaceship”
In his autobiography, Tyson Fury revealed that he’s already making preparations for his dream of going to space.
“It’s my dream to go to space as one of the first space tourists and I’m already focusing on this and making it happen,” Fury wrote.
The 32-year-old has been revered to be fearless inside the ring, taking down some of the biggest names in the heavyweight division in his career- from dethroning Wladimir Klitschko to marking Wilder’s first career defeat earlier this year.
“Don’t let anybody tell you that you can’t achieve your goals or dreams. You can,” Fury continues to reiterate his goal of space travelling, “I see myself unstrapping myself from a comfy chair and floating through the cabin of a spaceship to stare through a large window in awe of the beautiful blue place we call home.”
The undefeated boxing superstar is a prime example of what it means to dream big and achieve them, and Fury himself credits the legendary Muhammad Ali for being the inspiration.
Fury further wrote, “Muhammad Ali once said: ‘Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”
“What a man Ali was, and what a thought that is. People are achieving their true goals all the time, every day. Who is to say that you can’t be one of them?” entreats Fury.
