I don’t know if I need to fight anymore – Tyson Fury drops retirement hint after back-to-back victories against Deontay Wilder
Tyson Fury has hinted he could retire after his back to back victories against Deontay Wilder in their trilogy bout. The 33-year-old defended his WBC heavyweight belt over the weekend after blasting away the Bronze Bomber in Las Vegas.
The Gypsy King, who was dropped twice in the fourth round of their fight, sent his American rival crashing to the canvas three times in their third meeting.
The British boxer has now admitted he is unsure what the future holds for him despite being linked with fights against Anthony Joshua, Oleksandr Usyk and Dillian Whyte.
He told the Telegraph: “I don’t know what’s going to happen. “I’ve got one fight left on my contract with Top Rank and ESPN and we’ll see what that is.
“But I’m not thinking about boxing right now. I don’t know how many fights I’ve got left. “I don’t know if I need to fight any more. I don’t know what the future holds.”
Commenting on his motivation, he added: “It’s not money or a million title defences. “I am motivated to get up in the morning, do a little bit of training and enjoy my day.
“I don’t have any goals in boxing, I have done everything and won everything, the only one to do it in my era. “I will always have been the WBC, WBA, WBO, IBF, Ring magazine champion, that will not evaporate in history, but once it is done, it is done and you cannot get it back.
“Once you are done, it doesn’t matter how many belts you have, who you beat, what your record is. You are just another bare bum in the shower and I have always had that opinion.
“You have to enjoy it while it is here because when it is gone it is gone. Even the wins and the glory die down and sooner or later you just become another person and a has-been.”
