Tyson Fury has once again announced that he is retired from boxing, just days after revealing he was going to return to the ring to face Derek Chisora.

It was only on Tuesday that the ‘Gypsy King’ took to social media to reveal his plan to return to the bring and three days later he has backtracked, releasing another statement.

The WBC, The Ring and lineal champion took to Twitter this afternoon on his 34th birthday to announce his decision.


On Twitter he wrote: "Massive thanks to everyone who had an input in my career over the years and after long, hard conversations I've finally decided to walk away.

And on my 34th birthday I say bon voyage. Here's a few who made it special along the way - Frank Warren, SugarHill Steward, BT Sport, Dad, Spencer Brown, Steve Egan, ESPN, WBC, Top Rank, Jimmy Harrington, Andy Lee, Isaac Lowe, Ben Davison, Kristian Blacklock, Tim Allcock, Robert Davies, Shane Fury, Hughie Fury, James Ward.

"Sorry if I missed you there's too many to name! Massive shoutout to Paris, who helped me more than anyone, and most of all thank you God. See you all on the other side you big dossers 2008-2022."

Fury originally retired in April after he defeated Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium, constantly saying that nothing could convince him to come back into the fold. Then earlier this week he announced his plans to fight Chisora for the third time under novice coach and former Commonwealth featherweight champion Issac Lowe.

On Thursday, Fury revealed that the fight was off due to ‘Del Boy’ asking for too much money. It had been speculated, with Fury adding fuel to the fire, that he would consider facing the winner of the upcoming rematch between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk but following his latest statement no one is quite sure what will happen now.
