Tyson Fury's son wants to be like Deontay Wilder

Tyson Fury’s son Adonis, 6, has been filmed telling his dad that he wants to be like arch-rival Deontay Wilder when he’s older, much to the horror of his old man.

After a draw in their first encounter, Fury defeated Wilder in 2020 to become the new heavyweight champion.

Tyson was then able to knock Wilder out once again in the trilogy showdown back in 2021.

‘The Gypsy King’ was last seen in action last month, when he defeated Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium in convincing fashion.

Following the win over Whyte, Fury announced his retirement from the sport of boxing.

Recently, Fury posted a video on Instagram asking his son what his name is and how old he is. He then asks Adonis what he wants to be when he grows up, to which he answers: “A boxer.”

Fury then asks which boxer he aspires to be, and Adonis says: “Deontay Wilder.”

Much to his surprise, Tyson responds with: “No way… he’s a dosser!”

After announcing his retirement, Tyson said he plans to spend time with his wife Paris and family.

Speaking to Piers Morgan, Tyson said: “This is the truth, the gospel truth, nothing but the truth – I’m done. 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.”
