Tyson Fury is planning a move into coaching after he hangs up his gloves, as he believes he has a maximum of five fights left in his professional career.
“When I finish as champion after maybe four or five more fights Sugar and I are going into business together,” Fury told the Daily Mail. “We will train a few fighters. We’ve set the wheels in motion already by contacting a few young hopefuls around the world.
“Hopefully we will find a new world heavyweight champion. That would be incredible — maybe even more of an achievement than me winning all the belts.
“For me, more difficult. Inside the ring I know exactly what I’ve got to do to win. But when it’s someone else you don’t have that control. It will be a huge challenge.
“I’m really looking forward to it. I’ve been around boxing all my life and I know the game inside out but with this I can still be in big-time boxing, without getting my face smashed.”
Fury was preparing to face Anthony Joshua in Saudi Arabia on August 14 before a retired judge ruled he had to instead face Deontay Wilder. The rivals will meet in Las Vegas on July 24 while Joshua will take on mandatory challenger Oleksandr Usyk on September 25.
