British world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has claimed he will retire from boxing after his upcoming bout with Dillian Whyte. Fury is set to face compatriot Whyte at Wembley Stadium on April 23. 

It was widely expected that, were Fury to win, he would then battle the winner of Anthony Joshua’s rematch with Oleksandr Usyk later in the year.

However, Fury has said he is planning on stepping away from the ring to spend time with his wife Paris and six kids abroad.

“This is the final fight of my career, I’m retiring after this,” Fury said at a press conference on Tuesday.

“£112million in the bank, healthy, young, I’m gonna buy a massive yacht abroad.
