Fury Retracts Statements

London (16 January) Undefeated heavyweight sensation Tyson Fury would like to apologise to the WBC for any offence they may have taken regarding his recent comments.

"I would like to apologise to the WBC for the comments I made and any implications that resulted from them," Tyson said.

"Through no fault of my own I have been unable to fight since April with fights in September and February being cancelled.

"The entire situation and inactivity has left me extremely frustrated.

"The WBC title has meant a lot to me since I was a kid and I always wanted to fight for that green WBC belt and put my name with the greats like Ali, Leonard, Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis who have held it.

"That passion to hold that belt and the frustration of being forced to be inactive for so long sometimes leads me to say things that I shouldn’t and I would like to take this opportunity to retract those comments I made.

"I do not believe that the WBC or any of its members acted improperly in the heavyweight division, but having fought a WBC eliminator (which I know and understand was not a final eliminator), and with the title being vacated, I genuinely believe I am the best heavyweight and deserving of a shot."
