TYSON FURY is still training well past 10pm – but his coach insisted the British boxing legend remains retired.
Fury left many unconvinced when he announced before and after knocking out Dillian Whyte that it would be the final fight of his career.
And further doubt could be raised as the unbeaten and still current WBC champion filmed himself during a late-night session.
An undisputed super-fight remains on the cards after Anthony Joshua, 32, and Oleksandr Usyk, 35, rematch this summer.
But Fury, 33, has maintained he remains uninterested in bidding to become the first-ever four-belt heavyweight king.
And his coach Sugarhill Steward backed up those words while revealing the Gypsy King still continues to train.

Steward told Sky Sports: “He still trains, he still works out, it’s something he loves to do, I’m happy with his decision and for him to be able to be with his family and spend time with them.
“This man has been working his whole life doing that to have his family be a part of that.
“Being able to take care of them, do things and have adventures with them. I’m very happy for him.
“It’s just his choice. There’s something inside his brain, his head telling him to retire. I have to respect that 100 per cent.”

Despite Fury’s stance on keeping the gloves hung up, history shows a comeback cannot be ruled out entirely.
Steward said: “There are a lot of fighters that have been retired and come out of retirement.
“There are a lot of fighters that have been retired and stay retired. It’s just up to Tyson Fury, I stand by his decision.”
