Tyson Fury is gearing up for what could be one of his last fights next month as he outlines his plans for retirement after hanging up his gloves.
The 33-year-old Wythenshawe-born boxer and self-proclaimed ‘gypsy king’ is currently hard at work and training for what he’s recently claimed could bring an end to his illustrious career when he comes up against fellow Brit Dillian Whyte for the highly-anticipated heavyweight showdown at Wembley Stadium on 23 April.
Although boxing fans have been left surprised by Fury teasing his retirement, as it was widely expected that he would take on either Oleksandr Usyk or Anthony Joshua in a heavyweight unification clash, he’s made it clear he doesn’t need to take any more fights in his future.
With an undefeated record of 31 wins and a draw against Deontay Wilder, Fury revealed that his reason for retiring comes down to the fact he has more money than he’ll ever need.
Speaking to BT Sport about why he wants to retire after the Whyte match, Fury explained: “The only thing I can gain is money, so after this fight, I’ll have earned over £100 million. If I can spend that, I don’t deserve any more, do I? I know Mike Tyson spent half a billion and Evander Holyfield £400 million and all the rest, but I don’t live their big flash lifestyles.
“I live in Morecambe [and] it’s cheap there. I don’t have any big habits, like I’m gambling tons of money away, I don’t do anything.
“I can never spend the money I’ve got.”
“I’ve got stuff I want to do,” he continued.
“[There’s] a lot of opportunities that don’t involve me getting brain damage. I’ve got six kids and a wife. When is enough enough? Why do I have to be one of those people who went on too long and got injured? Just had one too many fights and blew it all for what? A few more quid?”
Revealing what he hopes to achieve before the end of his career, Fury added: “‘I want to retire on top, unbeaten heavyweight champion of the world, and I want to do a Netflix documentary, a Hollywood movie, and be a good husband, father and son.
“Most of all I just want to be happy, and that’s probably the hardest thing.”
It’s not just his retirement plans that Fury’s been speaking about the run-up to the Whyte clash either, as he’s also jokingly revealed in a recent appearance on the Pat McAfee Show on YouTube that he puts most of the successes in his career down to “masturbation seven times a day”.
“I put my success down to masturbation seven times a day,” Fury said.
“Got to keep that blood pumping baby. The only thing I have been loading is testosterone from all the w***ing over the years. Right hands and left hands depending on what I feel like.”

Trailer released for new Netflix drama series starring Michelle Keegan airing in the new year
The first trailer for a new Netflix show starring Michelle Keegan and Joanna Lumley has now been released.
In case you hadn’t heard, the highly-anticipated new crime drama show, which is titled Fool Me Once, is an adaptation of Harlan Coben’s popular novel, and is set to air on the streaming service as soon as 2024 arrives.
But now, the release of the first trailer has proved it looks brilliantly binge-worthy.
The eight-part series follows Manchester-born actress Michelle Keegan’s character, Maya Starn, who is a former special ops pilot struggling with the tragic murder of her husband, Joe, who is played by Richard Armitage.
Detective Sergeant Sami Kierce, who is portrayed by Adeel Akhtar, conducts the investigation into Joe’s death while wrestling with his own hidden truths.
Things start to get interesting though, when she observes via the nanny cam her supposedly deceased husband playing with their baby daughter in her own home.
Meanwhile, Maya’s niece and nephew embark on the journey to seek answers about their own mother’s murder which took place months ago.
But one question remains – could the two mysteries be related?
The first trailer for the show was released by Netflix at the end of last week, and it showcases a star-studded cast with the likes of Dame Joanna Lumley from Absolutely Fabulous, Adeel Akhtar from Sherwood, Emmett J Scanlan from Peaky Blinders, and Dino Fetscher from Paranoid.
The streaming service has unveiled a selection of first look images, showcasing a star-studded cast with the likes of Dame Joanna Lumley from Absolutely Fabulous, Adeel Akhtar from Sherwood, Emmett J Scanlan from Peaky Blinders, and Dino Fetscher from Paranoid.
Filming took place in Yorkshire, where production crews were spotted in the Burdock Way area near the centre of Halifax, but Michelle Keegan was also spotted filming in Manchester city centre back in May.
Fool Me Once will air on Netflix in the UK on Monday 1 January.

Timothée Chalamet thinks the sexiest British accent is… Hull?
Hollywood A-lister Timothée Chalamet has revealed the British accents he finds sexiest, and the results are unexpected.
The 27-year-old star of Wonka said that a Hull accent is up there as one of his favourites, along with Italian and French.
How does Timothée Chalamet even know about Hull’s existence, never mind know what the accent sounds like?
The star, who rose to astronomical fame back in 2017 with his portrayal of Elio in Call Me By Your Name, and has since starred in blockbusters such as Dune and Little Woman, revealed his favourite access on the current Wonka press tour, The Hoot reports.
Chalamet appeared on LadBible TV talking to Keegan-Michael Key, where they discuss the internet’s biggest debates.
In a segment where they debate the British accent, Chalamet goes on to reveal his top three British accents… and the answers are not what you would expect.
Firstly he admits his favourite is the Hull accent, he says: “I like the Hull accent. Hull is sexy”.
We’ve never thought of the Hull accent as particularly sexy before, but we will absolutely take it.
He then goes onto say: “I like Hull, Essex is my top three, and I like a middle-aged Yorkshire accent.”
We’re not sure the difference between a Yorkshire and a middle-aged Yorkshire accent, but what Timothée wants then Timothée will get.
In the comments, one person said: “I’m from Hull and nobody in Hull likes the Hull accent lol.”
Another joked: “suddenly i have the hull accent.”
And someone else wrote: “good day to have a hull accent.”
So thank you Timmy, we’d have to say that we wholeheartedly agree and that our accent is in fact, the sexiest of them all.
Next time we’d like to see you attempt a Yorkshire accent on the big screen, because we’re sure you’d absolutely smash it.
