TYSON FURY was filling up his day with school runs, dog walking and weeding while retired – but it was not enough to keep him away from boxing.
The unbeaten father-of-six returns on Saturday in a trilogy bout against his old friend-turned foe Derek Chisora.

It is Fury’s first fight since knocking out Dillian Whyte, 34, in April, the night he told Wembley Stadium he was done for good.
But his latest retirement lasted just a matter of months before the WBC champion was drawn back in.
Fury, 34, told BT Sport: “I said, ‘This is it, one more fight.’
“I come back and I had the opportunity to box at home, I felt like I needed to give it to the UK fans, been away such a long time.
“I really meant it and I had a few months at home, walking the dog, picking up a load of dog s***, taking the kids to school and doing the bins.
“Normal stuff, weeding, weed killer, picking rubbish up and picking up the bins that the seagulls had ripped out everywhere.
“That sort of normal life. It was enjoyable but that normal life I now know that I’m anything but normal, like an abnormal load.
“I need to be always mentally stimulated and I know it wasn’t just doom and gloom – I was here in camp with Joseph Parker.
“None of that combined has given me the same adrenaline rush and same feeling as training for another fight, one on one, mano a mano.”
Fury has even voiced his fears believing his addiction could keep him in boxing for far too long, not knowing when to give it up.
He returns at Tottenham’s stadium with super-fight against Oleksandr Usyk, 35, and Anthony Joshua, 33, in the pipeline for 2023.
But after failing to get either in the ring this year, he turned to the man he already beat in one-sided fashion twice before.
Fury said: “There was Manuel Charr, he was ready to rock and roll. And then there was sort of a lot of negative stuff about Manuel Charr.
“So I thought, ‘You know what? Chisora’s just beat [Kubrat] Pulev, he’s top ten ranked opponent, let’s do the trilogy with Derek.’
“And then we went back and talked a little bit more money with Derek and we finally got it over the line and here we are on December 3rd.
“Derek stepped up to the plate like he always does.”
