TYSON FURY has announced his retirement from boxing.
The self-titled ‘Gypsy King’ posted on his official Instagram page the news that will shock boxing fans around the world.
It should be taken with a pinch of salt however. Fury has previously said he has ‘retired’ yet changed his mind.
Writing alongside a photo of him holding the world titles he won when defeating Wladimir Klitschko, Fury wrote: “Been very blessed in my life and career achieve the upmost in boxing.
” was an epic journey along the way.
“Thanks to all the fans that supported and believed in me along the way.
“Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.”
He then signed off the message with “the end”.
Fury, who was stripped of his world titles and boxing licenses after failing a drugs test and admitting cocaine, has talked in recent months of a big comeback into the sport.
However, with this latest announcement, this appears to be dead in the water.
Just moments before Fury posted the big announcement, he also blasted his uncle and trainer Peter Fury for “jumping in bed with the enemy.”
Tyson uploaded a photo to Instagram showing Peter and promoter Mick Hennessy in David Haye’s gym, with Haye’s manager Adam Morallee in the middle.
Peter is seen shaking Morallee’s hand, while Hennessy has his arm around his shoulder.
Tyson captioned the photo: “Can’t believe you’re both in that p****s gym and even considering doing business with that piece of s**t.
“I’m totally disappointed in you both”.
Fury and Haye were scheduled to fight on February 8 2014, but the latter was forced to pull out of the fight, and then underwent shoulder surgery.
