Tyson Fury Reveals Why He Is Not Taking His Second Covid-19 Vaccine Before His Fight With Deontay Wilder On October 9, 2021
WBC heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury prevalently known as the ”Gypsy King” has uncovered he won’t get his second Coronavirus jab until after his arranged battle with Deontay Wilder on October 9 as he would not like to ‘face challenges’ with his performance on the day of the bout.
Tyson Fury delayed his unique July 24 set of three bout with American adversary Deontay Wilder after he tried positive for Covid-19 after a flare-up in his camp. The whole covid drama arose after the bout that he turned during his second vaccine because of worries about getting ordinary infection from the jab.
Tyson Fury had his first jab over the late spring yet has now asserted he would not like to risk his vocation and his family’s income by taking the immunization ahead of October’s bout.
This is what Tyson Fury had to say;
”You never can tell. There’s so much bullsh*** with all this, stories that go around, you never know what’s the truth and what’s not. So, I’m not in the risk-taking game. I’m in a serious, life threatening job, where you can get your lights knocked out with one punch. And if a second dose was to affect me in any way, then I’d never live with myself before a big fight.
But when the fight’s over, and it hasn’t affected me, I’ll have time to recover from it all. But I wouldn’t go now and have my injection, not knowing what’s gonna happen next week, because I’ve got much business on. And it not only would affect my career, but affect my family’s future earnings and taking food out of my family’s mouth.
So when the boxing’s over in the minute, I can go and get my vaccine, second shot, and we’ll see how we go from there. But yeah, for now, I’m just gonna stick with one until after the fight.
It’s killed a lot of people in the world and if the vaccine helps, then get it done, you know? I had my first vaccine back in I think July or June in Miami. And I was supposed to go back and have another one after the Wilder fight.”
