Tyson Fury reveals his plans for retirement on This Morning

Tyson Fury this morning revealed that we may only get to see him in the ring two more times before he "sails into the sunset" and retires.

The best active heavyweight in the world defeated Deontay Wilder in outstanding fashion 11 days ago to become the WBC heavyweight champion of the world.

The 31-year-old opened up about the future after his wife Paris called for him to call it a day on This Morning.

In response, Fury said: "I've got two more fights left, then we're going to really think about what we do from there.

"How long does a piece of string go on? I'm undefeated in 31 professional fights and this is my 12th year as a professional.

"I've already been the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. When I beat Klitschko I had all the belts, so as far as I'm concerned Anthony Joshua just has my leftovers.

"I never lost those belts, I had to take time out to deal with mental health issues, so they're my belts. Until a man is defeated in a boxing ring, how can you pretend to be the champion?"

The world is currently waiting to find out Tyson's next move, and whether he will face fellow British heavyweight Anthony Joshua in a unification fight.

However, it's looking more likely that a rematch with Wilder will be the big announcement in the next few weeks.

If the rematch happens, and Tyson still feels like there are only two fights left in him, it's more than likely his retirement fight will be with Joshua – and if that happens in Britain, it will be one of the biggest moments in British sporting history.

But, this is boxing, and you never quite know what's around the corner.

All we do know is that Tyson is a very proud, undefeated champion who has, at this point, justified retirement. The man was born to fight and if he retires now he will go down as one of the greatest heavyweights of all time.

But a second defeat of Wilder, and a win against Joshua, will take him to even greater heights – and it goes without saying that that's what he wants.
