Tyson Fury had ‘short-term memory loss’ making him ‘frightened’ after Wilder win

Tyson Fury has spoken out about the ‘short-term’ memory loss he had following his win over Deontay Wilder that left him ‘frightened.’

The Gypsy King faced off against the American last October for their third bout, winning via an eleventh-round knockout. The fight is widely regarded as the best of the year and even one of the greatest heavyweight bouts there has ever been.

But Tyson revealed in his new autobiography, serialised by The Sun, that there is a price to pay. He said: “I even experienced short-­term memory loss following that bruising encounter with Wilder in 2021, when, in the hours after the win, my head covered in tennis ball-­sized lumps, it was impossible to remember how many times I’d gone down.

“Everything was foggy, and the experience frightened me.”

Fury and Wilder clashed three times in some memorable encounters, with the Brit winning twice and one ending in a controversial draw.

Despite talks about retiring from the sport, Fury has confirmed his next fight will be against Derek Chisora on December 3 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.

The bout has been agreed upon following rumours that the Gypsy King was going to face off against Anthony Joshua this year.

Discussions broke down and now Fury's promotional team are now targeting an undisputed world title clash with Oleksandr Usyk in early 2023.

"Whenever Tyson Fury fights, it is a major event, and I expect him to once again put on a spectacular show for the fans," Top Rank chairman Bob Arum said.

“There are talks about what's next for Tyson, but the first order of business is a battle against an extraordinarily tough fighter in Derek Chisora."

Fury has boxed Chisora twice before, where he beat the Londoner on points in a 2011 British title fight – and then he defeated Chisora in a European championship bout three years after that.
