Tyson Fury to ‘walk away’ from boxing after short-lived comeback flirtation


LONDON — Tyson Fury has determined to “walk away” from boxing, solely three days after saying he was returning to the game.

Fury turned 34 on Friday and posted a message on social Media saying: “Massive thanks to everyone who had an input in my career over the years & after long hard conversations (I’ve finally) decided to walk away & on my 34th birthday I say Bon voyage.”

That seemingly places Fury again into retirement, after he introduced on Tuesday that he was returning to boxing so as to arrange a combat in opposition to Derek Chisora, a fellow Briton whom he beat twice early in his profession.

That announcement had sparked hypothesis that Fury, the reigning WBC heavyweight champion, was concentrating on a potential unification bout in opposition to the winner between Oleksandr Usyk, the reigning WBA, IBF and WBO titleholder, and Anthony Joshua, who’re preventing on Aug. 20 in Saudi Arabia.

Fury didn’t give a purpose for his obvious change of coronary heart.

The undefeated Fury initially mentioned after his win over Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium in April that he was retiring from the game.
