Tyson Fury claims he will call it a day from boxing following his fight with Dillian Whyte.
Fury is set to defend his WBC heavyweight title against Whyte on April 23 at Wembley Stadium in London, England.
The winner of the fight is not only in store for a huge payday, but could also go on to face the winner of the planned Oleksandr Usyk vs. Anthony Joshua rematch and potentially unify the heavyweight division.
However, Fury has no such plans at the moment.
In fact, “The Gypsy King” revealed in a recent press conference that he would be retiring after the Whyte fight in what would be the final fight of his professional career (via Michael Benson).
“This is the final fight of my career, I’m retiring after this,” Fury said. “$150million in the bank, healthy, young, I’m gonna buy a massive yacht abroad.
“I’m retiring, I’m out, this is my final fight, I’m done.”
Is Tyson Fury Retiring?
Whether this is just pre-fight talk or if Fury is genuinely serious remains to be seen for the moment.
But with that said, he can certainly retire today and be well off for the rest of his life with all the earnings he has made since his comeback to the sport in 2018.
