Tyson Fury reaffirms boxing retirement with social media post | boxing news

Tyson Fury 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 beating Dillian Whyte to retain his WBC title at Wembley Stadium in London in April that he was retiring from the sport.

But in June he announced he would be “100%” returning to the ring, but underlined “big pockets” are needed for a potential unification bout against Anthony Joshua or Oleksandr Usyk.

And on Wednesday, Fury announced a return to boxing and is targeting a third fight against Derek Chisora.

However, Fury now appears to have called it a day for good, posting: “A big thank you to everyone who has contributed to my career over the years and after long difficult conversations I have finally decided to go and on my 34th birthday, I say bon voyage.”
