Tyson Fury’s vow to retire from professional boxing could mark the end, for now at least, of an extraordinary career..
His rise, fall, and rise again may have seen a final chapter as the British fighter retained his WBC heavyweight world title with victory against Dillian Whyte.
Fury stopped his compatriot in the sixth round in front of a 94,000-capacity Wembley Stadium on Saturday.
And afterwards the 33-year-old said: “You know I promised my lovely wife Paris of 14 years that after the three [Deontay] Wilder fights that would be it, and I meant it. It was a great trilogy but I meant that.
“I got offered to fight at Wembley at home and I believe I owed it to the fans, every person in the UK, to fight at Wembley I think this is it – this might be the final curtain for the Gypsy King. What a way to go out.”
