Fury’s son Adonis was filmed telling his dad he wants to be a boxer when he’s older – and more specifically Fury’s former opponent Wilder
TYSON FURY’S young son Prince Adonis has revealed he wants to follow in his dad’s footsteps and become a boxer… to be like Deontay Wilder.
The three-year-old hilariously stated he dreams of becoming the next Bronze Bomber.
And the Gypsy King was shocked by his revelation.
Fury, 33, ripped the WBC heavyweight title away from the American in their February 2020 rematch after stopping him in the seventh round.
He then brutally knocked the Alabama banger out in their epic trilogy encounter after the pair hit the deck five times between them in October.
And it appears that Wilder‘s aggressive and explosive style has caught the eye of Fury’s son.
In an adorable video Fury shared on Twitter, he asked his young child: “Who are you?”
To which the toddler, who was sitting on Fury’s shoulders, replied: “Prince Adonis Amaziah.”
Fury then asked: “How old are you?”
Prince stated: “Three.”
The unbeaten Mancunian then said: “What do you want to be when you’re older?”
His kid answered: “A boxer.”
Hoping he wants to follow in his footsteps, Fury then asked: “Which boxer are you going to be like?”
Breaking his dad’s heart, Prince said: “Deontay Wilder.”
A shocked Fury then quipped: “No way! He’s a big dosser.”
Fury and wife Paris have six children together with former world champion Carl Froch claiming the couple are expecting a seventh later this year. Fury plans to spend his retirement with his family and insists he has no interest stepping back into the ring.
“This is the truth, the gospel truth, nothing but the truth – I’m done,” Fury told Piers Morgan. “Every good dog has its day and like the great Roman leader said, there will always be somebody else to fight. When is enough enough? I’m happy, I’m healthy, I’ve still got my brains and I can still talk. I’ve got a beautiful wife, six kids, I’ve got umpteen belts, plenty of money, success, fame, glory – what more am I doing it for?
“Boxing is a very dangerous sport. You can be taken out with one punch as we’ve seen on Saturday and it’s one unlucky blow and you may not get up off that canvas. I’m quitting while I’m ahead, I’m undefeated and only the second man in history to retire as undefeated heavyweight champion. I’m very, very happy, very content in my heart with what I’ve done and what I’ve achieved.”
Fury insists he will not be tempted into a comeback against the winner of Anthony Joshua’s rematch with Oleksandr Usyk which is penciled in for July 23 in Saudi Arabia. Such a fight would crown the first undisputed heavyweight world champion since Lennox Lewis in 1999.
