Tyson Fury has reiterated his retirement from boxing is legitimate, but revealed his training schedule is still ongoing. Fury announced prior to his fight with Dillian Whyte that it would be his last as a professional, and stuck to that stance following his victory over the Body Snatcher last month.
After the bout at Wembley Fury confirmed on Piers Morgan: Uncensored: “This is the truth, the gospel truth, nothing but the truth – I’m done… Every good dog has its day. Like a great Roman leader said, there will always be somebody else to fight…

The Gypsy King gave another update on his future on Twitter on Friday morning, sharing his commitment to retirement despite confirming that he is still continuing his gruelling training schedule. Fury said: “Just finished a lovely four-mile run along the promenade, got a great sweat on.
