Tyson Fury has hinted he will retire from professional boxing, after retaining his WBC heavyweight title and undefeated record with a sixth-round knockout of Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium.
Fury, who has now won 32 and drawn one of his 33 bouts, sent Whyte to the canvass with a stunning right uppercut in front of 94,000 fans.
The 33-year-old then said “I think this is it” when asked in the ring whether he would fight again.
And speaking to BT Sport Fury said: “I promised my lovely wife Paris that after the third fight with Deontay Wilder that would be it and I meant it.
“I then got offered to fight at Wembley and I thought I owed it to the fans, to every person in the United Kingdom, to come here and fight.
“Now it’s all done I have to be a man of my word. I think this is it, it might be the final curtain for The Gypsy King and what a way to go out!”
Fury’s promoter, Frank Warren, told BT Sport: “If it was going to be the last fight, it’ll be the last fight. That’s his decision, he’s the guy getting in the ring. If it is his last fight, he has gone out on such a high.”Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
