Tyson Fury could make a return to fighting… but in a different capacity than usual as Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship president David Feldman has declared the Gypsy King is on his ‘radar’.

Fury announced his retirement from professional boxing after knocking out his heavyweight rival Dillian Whyte during their blockbuster bout at Wembley Stadium on April 23.

However, Fury has fluctuated in and out of retirement ever since – calling out Derek Chisora for a trilogy bout and strongman Hafthor Bjornsson for a showpiece fight before performing a sudden U-turn.

However, Fury could be set for a sensational return to fighting as Feldman has identified him as one of the athletes they are looking to recruit.

Speaking to TalkSPORT, Feldman said: ‘I think it [signing Tyson Fury] is definitely possible, if they take us seriously because we are the new kid on the block, they might not listen to us. If they listen to us, then absolutely I think we can get a deal done.

‘He absolutely is on our radar; he would take this sport to a whole different level. You just saw it at Wembley Stadium with almost 100,000 people in there.

He went on to add: ‘I think Tyson Fury would take this to a whole other level and we would absolutely love to make a play for him.’

Fury could be open to Feldman’s proposal as he previously flirted with the idea of taking part in a bare knuckle fight with UFC star Francis Ngannou.

Fury had been exchanging verbals with Ngannou in the build-up to his fight against Deontay Wilder in July 2021.

The Gypsy King said he had no interest of having an MMA fight but revealed he would take Ngannou on in a boxing match or a bare knuckle fight.

Speaking to TalkSPORT, he said: ‘In a stand-up fight, with small gloves on, I will fight him – no problem.

‘In a cage or a ring, it doesn’t matter; he can have four ounce gloves or bare knuckle if he wants.

‘It doesn’t really matter to me; I’m heavyweight champion of the world, it is one connection and it is goodnight Vienna.

‘He’s a big puncher too though. He’s a big, strong guy full of muscles and he is very accurate and a very big puncher. So it would definitely make for an interesting brawl, that is for sure.

‘The fact that I have never had any four ounce gloves on and the fact that he has never been punched by a world class heavyweight before, you’ve got to take that all into play.

Ngannou exchanged verbals with Fury earlier this year and hinted at a possible future fight

‘It would be a very exciting fight. He’s a big old beast, but I have been brought up from a child fighting big old beasts.’

Fury and Ngannou’s rivalry began earlier this year when the Brit said the UFC champion would be ‘easy work’ after he had dealt with Anthony Joshua.

Ngannou, who’s primary dream was to become a boxer before he focused on a career in MMA, called out Fury back in April and taunted him over the wounds he sustained in the Otto Wallin fight after he needed 47 stitches to sew up his damaged eye.

The pair then continued to taunt each other over social media before Fury hung up his boxing gloves in April.
