Just days after announcing that he intends to return to the ring, Tyson Fury has announced that he has retired once again. On Tuesday, ‘The Gypsy King’ took to social media to confirm that he will be fighting in a professional boxing ring once again against Derek Chisora but has since backtracked on his statement.
Posting to Instagram, he wrote: “MASSIVE THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO HAD AN INPUT IN MY CAREER OVER THE YEARS & AFTER LONG HARD CONVERSATIONS IV FINALY DECIDED TO WALK AWAY & ON MY 34th BIRTHDAY I SAY Bon voyage. HEARS A FEW WHO MADE IS SPECIAL ALONG THE WAY-@frank_warren_official @kronksugarhill @btsportboxing @gypsyjohnfury @spencerbrownmrgoldstar @steveegancoach @espn @wbcboxing @toprank @jimmyjamesharrington @bodypuncher @isaaclowe6 @bendavison_ @kristianblacklock @mattmassage94 @allcocktimothy.
“ROBERT DAVIS, SHANE FURY HUGHIE FURY, @jamesward_80 SORRY IF I MISSED U THERES TO MANY TO NAME! MASSIVE SHOUTOUT TO @parisfury1 WHO HELPED ME MORE THAN ANYONE. & MOST OF ALL THANKYOU GOD SEE YOU ALL ON THE OTHER SIDE YOU BIG DOSSERS 2008-2022.”
Fury had originally retired in April after stopping Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium but came out a few days ago to tell fans that he was unretiring to face Chisora in a third fight under novice coach and former Commonwealth featherweight champion Isaac Lowe.
In a video uploaded to Twitter, he said: “Well Andy, I’ve decided to come back to boxing because I can be the first heavyweight champion in history to have two trilogies, one with Deontay Wilder and a second one with Derek Chisora.
“I always said I’d fight Derek Chisora at the end of my career and here we are breaking all records again, setting precedents and why I’ve chosen Isaac Lowe as my trainer is because when I was with Peter [Fury] Issac was there, when I was with Ben [Davison] Issac’s always been there, and when I was with SugarHill [Steward] Isaac’s always been there as well. He’s always given me information, he knows me better than anybody on the planet and we’re a great team, we’ve always been together and we’re going to finish this out together.
“We’ve always worked very well together, and here we are about to take on a massive massive massive event.”
Then yesterday, Fury, declared that his fight with Chisora was ‘off’ due to ‘Del Boy’ asking for too much money. Before following this up with a visit to Iceland to call out World’s Strongest Man winner Thor Bjornsson to an exhibition contest only to find that ‘The Mountain’ was in Rome shooting a film.
