Tyson Fury has yet again retired from boxing, just a mere 72 hours after announcing his comeback.
Just three days ago, ‘The Gypsy King’ revealed to his Twitter followers that he was chasing a Derek Chisora trilogy bout and announced featherweight contender Isaac Lowe as his new trainer.
After plenty of back and forth with ‘Del Boy’, talks seemingly fell apart with Fury claiming Chisora had “moved the goalposts” on a potential deal.
The next target for the WBC champion was the strongman competitor, Thor Bjornsson, an opponent which Tyson has repeatedly mentioned for a possible exhibition bout later this year.
The Morecambe-based fighter even travelled to Iceland with his dad, John, in search of the man mountain, yet in typical Fury fashion ended up in a pub having a beer.
After a whirlwind three days for the heavyweight champ, he has again decided to call it quits, announcing his retirement to his nearly six million Instagram followers on his 34th birthday.
Posting a picture with himself and trainer SugarHill Steward, Fury said:
“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.
Fury then went onto tag many of the people who influenced his journey along the way, with the likes of Frank Warren, Ben Davison and Andy Lee making the list.
With the ever-changing mind of the 34-yer-old, it’s hard to see this being the final retirement announcement we see from the heavyweight king, especially with the lure of competing for the undisputed crown against the winner of the Oleksandr Usyk-Anthony Joshua rematch later this month.
However, in the small chance that it is, then congratulations Tyson Fury and good luck in retirement.
