After big hopes of a comeback later this year, Tyson Fury hangs them up for good.
‘The Gypsy King’ posted on his Instagram account and confirmed that he has retired from boxing.
“Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. THE END,” wrote Fury.
With Fury retiring, the heavyweight division won’t see its most anticipated British fight in recent history. All the talk about Anthony Joshua facing Fury next year can be put to bed. The two went at each other verbally on countless occasions but the hype is now dead.
Fury also had to battle the British Boxing Board of Control and the UK Anti-Doping Agency to get his official license back but that struggle is also now over.
The famous win against Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 will be remembered as Fury’s final and his greatest career fight. He leaves professional boxing with a respectable record of 25 wins and zero losses.
