Tyson Fury, 34, compares himself to a FORD ESCORT with miles on him after being beaten to pieces during his career | Rare Techy
TYSON FURY has admitted his speedway career has left him feeling like a FORD ESCORT with miles on it and “beaten to bits”.
The luxury motor loving WBC heavyweight champion is approaching his 34th pro fight.
Fury, 34, will return to action on December 3 in a trilogy fight against Derek Chisora, 38, whom he defeated one-sidedly in 2011 and 2014.
And after years of physical wear and tear on his body, the King of Gypsies opened up about the raunchiness and swagger.
Speaking on BT Sport’s Chatterbox, Fury said: “I’m like an old banger, a Ford Escort with 250,000 miles on the clock.
“And every part of me is absolutely battered. Joints, elbows, knees, back, I’ve got a lot of mileage on the clock.
“Imagine being a heavyweight being beaten to pieces for years and years and years, go on and on and on day after day and just take the pain.
“It’s like Rocky said, ‘It’s not how much pain you can give out, it’s how much pain you can take and move on.’
Fury has completed the double over Chisora in three years.
He is a two-time reigning world champion and finds himself in an undisputed showdown next year against 35-year-old Oleksandr Usyk.

But Chisora sensationally claimed that Fury is on the BACK after the pair’s fight.
He said: “I think he was a better fighter the last time I boxed him. The last time I fought him he was better, he was good, he was on point.”
Fury will defend his title against Chisora at Tottenham Stadium and is already in talks to join Usyk next year.
