Tyson Fury reaffirms his retirement from boxing with social media post | Boxing News

Tyson Fury has reaffirmed his retirement from boxing in a statement on his social media accounts, saying “bon voyage” to the sport on his 34th birthday.

Fury said after his win over Dillian Whyte to retain his WBC title at London’s Wembley Stadium in April that he was retiring from the sport.

But in June he announced he would “100 per cent” return to the ring, but stressed “big pockets” are required for a potential unification bout against Anthony Joshua or Oleksandr Usyk.

And on Wednesday, Fury announced a return to boxing and has his sights set on a third bout against Derek Chisora.

However, Fury now seems to have called it a day for good, posting: “Massive thanks to everyone who had an input in my career over the years & after long hard conversations I’ve finally decided to walk away & on my 34th birthday I say Bon voyage.”
