TYSON FURY has been offered a route back into fighting after Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship president David Feldman declared he is on his “radar”.
The Gypsy King announced his retirement from boxing following his knockout victory against heavyweight rival Dillian Whyte in April at Wembley.
But he was willing to return to the squared circle having entered talks with British compatriot Derek Chisora over a trilogy bout later this year.
However the domestic dust-up fell through, leading the unbeaten Mancunian to double down on his decision to hang up his gloves on his 34th birthday last week.
And while Fury‘s glistening boxing career has come to an end, he has been offered the chance to continue fighting in BKFC.
A number of high-profile stars have signed deals with the American company in recent years, with former UFC ace Paige VanZant snapped up on a long-term contract in 2020.
Meanwhile ex-boxing world champion Paulie Malignaggi fought once in 2019 where he was outpointed by MMA ace Artem Lobov.
And Fury could be the next to make the move to BKFC after he vacated the prestigious Ring magazine heavyweight title.
Speaking to talkSPORT, BKFC chief 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.
“I think Tyson Fury would take this to a whole other level and we would absolutely love to make a play for him.”
Feldman added: “I just wanna get some more of these boxers. We are going to make a play for some of these really good boxers.
“I can’t mention their names right now because it’s not done but we have two of the top 10 in the world we are negotiating with right now.”
