Oleksandr Usyk is set to rematch Anthony Joshua

That is despite the lure of an undisputed super-fight against the winner of Usyk’s rematch with Anthony Joshua.

Fury has held all four belts at separate times in the past and can retire happy.

He told talkSPORT: “I’ve already been the undisputed champion. I’ve won every single belt there is to win.

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

Usyk, 35, beat Joshua, 32, last September and the pair are set to rematch in July.

But Fury, 33, has maintained he will not be there to await the winner with the uppercut knockout against Whyte, 34, the last of his career.

And while quitting on top, he claimed Usyk is no match for him anyway.

Fury said: “It’s is never gonna happen because I’m retired, but let’s just say I’d punch him round the ring.

Fury has still left the door open to an exhibition bout with UFC champ Francis Ngannou, 35.
