Tyson Fury hung up his gloves for the umpteenth time as the WBC heavyweight champion turned 34 on his birthday.
“The Gypsy King,” who unretired last week after retiring last year, says he’s fought his last fight. The decision comes after Fury offered to fight Derek Chisora for the third time.
The reaction from fans was underwhelming. Fury had previously pummeled Chisora twice.
Tyson Fury retires again
Instead of awaiting the outcome of Oleksandr Usyk vs Anthony Joshua next week and opening up the possibility of an undisputed unification, Fury decided to go now.
“Massive thanks to everyone who had an input in my career over the year. After long hard conversations, I’ve finally decided to walk away,” said Fury.
“On my 34th birthday, I say bon voyage.”
“Here are a few who made it special along the way. Frank Warren, Sugarhill Steward, BT Sport, John Fury, Spencer Brown of Goldstar, Steve Egan, ESPN, World Boxing Council, Top Rank, Jimmy Harrington, Andy Lee, and Isaac Lowe.
He continued: “Ben Davison, Kristian Blacklock, Matt Massage, Timothy Allcock, Robert Davis, Shane Fury, Hughie Fury, and James Ward.
“Sorry if I missed you. There are too many to name!
“Massive shoutout to Paris Fury, who helped me more than anyone. Most of all, Thank You, God.
“See you all on the other side, you big dossers – 2008-2022.”
Before retiring again, Fury had fired trainer Sugarhill Steward out of nowhere. The shock happening led to fans questioning if Fury was trolling.
“I’ve decided to come back to boxing because I can be the first heavyweight champion in history to have two trilogies. One with Deontay Wilder and the second with Derek Chisora,” Fury explained.
“I always said I’d fight Derek Chisora at the end of my career. Here we are, breaking all records again, setting precedents.”
On leaving Steward to team up with friend Isaac Lowe, Fury added: “Issac’s always been there. He’s always given me information.
“He knows me better than anyone on the planet. We make a great team.
“We’ve always been together. We’re going to finish this out together. We have always been together, and here we are about to take on a massive, massive event.”
Sadly, Lowe will not get the chance to be a 28-year-old boxer/coach of the top division ruler as Tyson Fury retires again.
He walks away will millions of dollars in the bank but more questions than answers over a potential clash with Usyk or Joshua for all four titles.
