‘I want a normal life’ – Tyson Fury vows to retire, delete Instagram and give up stardom after Dillian Whyte fight

, ‘I want a normal life’ – Tyson Fury vows to retire, delete Instagram and give up stardom after Dillian Whyte fight

TYSON FURY has doubled down once again on his promise to retire after Saturday’s Dillian Whyte fight.

And the WBC heavyweight champ also committed to deleting his Instagram and giving up his public stardom to enjoy a more reserved lifestyle away from the spotlight back in Morecambe.

Fury, 33, puts his world title on the line at Wembley this weekend against the Body Snatcher.

In March, though, he announced the bout would be the last of his career because he has decided to retire.

His trainer SugarHill Steward suggested earlier this month how nobody believes the unbeaten Mancunian will pack it in.

And Fury’s dad John last week laughed off his son’s retirement talk as “bulls***”.

But after telling talkSPORT this is the end and there would be no Anthony Joshua showdown, the Gypsy King has reiterated his stance – as he fulfills a promise to his wife.

Fury said: “I’m happy to go back to Morecambe and be left alone.

“I’m gonna delete my Instagram, I’m getting away from being a ‘star’.

“I want to be left alone to live my normal little life, pathetic life I live in Morecambe Bay – going to school, taking out the bins, getting a haircut, valeting the car, going out once a week and training every day.

“Win, lose or draw on Saturday night they’ll be no more fights.”

He added to iFL TV: “This is it, this is the final countdown, the final curtain for the big GK.

“It doesn’t get any bigger than this. 94,000 people, capital stadium, London.

“There’s not much more I can do, defending my belt at home.

“I was going to retire after the last Deontay Wilder fight, me and Paris agreed that would be it in the changing rooms even before the fight happened.

“I didn’t want any more fights then this opportunity came up to fight at home at Wembley and even though I wasn’t keen, I thought I owed the fans that much to fight at home for the final time.

“This will be the end, for sure.

“I’m happy and contented with who I am, what I’ve done, I’ve made a few quid, I’ve won all the belts, I’ve done more than I ever wanted to and ticked off all the boxes.

“Enough is enough.”

Fury and Whyte finally went face to face for the first time ahead of their bout today.

It was all very mild-mannered and respectful between the two fighters, with the champ even left red-faced after an accidental gaffe.

Describing the closeness of their relationship, Fury said: “We were good friends together, we went out for a drink, we ate together, we slept together.”
