Tyson fury has been thinking about his legacy today, and, despite being heavyweight champion of the world, one belt that evaded him on the way there is playing on his mind.
‘The Gypsy King’ is undefeated in the sport of boxing. He’s collected all of the heavyweight titles – albeit some on separate occasions – and even held the Ring Magazine title twice. He’s taken part in a fight of the year, and beaten two long-reigning champions in their backyards.
And yet, one thing in the sport eludes him. The British Central Area Heavyweight title. He took to social media today to demand a shot at the belt.
“Right, guys. Just been thinking … I’ve won every single belt in boxing, apart from one belt – and that belt is the Central Area Heavyweight Championship of Britain. So I’m calling out whoever’s the Central Area Heavyweight Champion. I’m calling you out, cause that’s my belt! I want it! I haven’t got it! It’s the only belt that I haven’t won and I want it. I’m coming for whoever you are. Come on!”

As per the British Boxing Board of Control’s website, Chris Healey currently holds the Central Area Heavyweight Title. The man from Stockport has 9 wins and 12 losses. He has fought an impressive four times in 2022, with losses to Jay MacFarlane, Chuckwudi Ndidi, Fabio Wardley and David Adeleye.
Given his latest efforts, checking social media and finding a call out from the heavyweight champ will come as a surprise. Still, stranger things have happened in boxing, and although Fury is likely doing it all in jest, if there’s one man to go through with this plan, it’s him.
