And Oleksandr Usyk doesn’t believe the Brit has truly retired

Fan favourite Fury is adamant his fighting days are over, but unified heavyweight champ isn’t buying the 33-year-old’s apparent retirement.

The slick southpaw told BlockAsset: “No, I don’t believe him!”

A multi-million-pound undisputed fight against the winner of Usyk’s high-stakes rematch with Anthony Joshua is still in the offing for Fury.

But the 6ft9 Brit has no interest in sharing the ring with either man, who will renew their rivalry in a summer Saudi showdown.

“I’ve got nothing more to do, I am out, fully retired. Done.

“[Fighting Usyk] is never gonna [sic] happen because I’m retired, but let’s just say I’d punch him round the ring.

“Because he’s a middleweight, blown up.

“I am retired so what I wanna do is chill out with my family and enjoy the rest of my life. Who knows what the future holds?

“But as of yet, I’m just enjoying myself and I’m gonna grow my hair back I think!

“I’ve got school runs with the kids, I’ve got my bin trips to the tip, washing cars down, haircuts, shaves, hoovering, cleaning up.

“The normal day-to-day stuff at home with the kids, family and wife. Weekends, I look forward to my weekends, I train all week.

“That’s it really, just enjoy life one day at a time.”
