TYSON FURY claimed once again he WILL retire after his Dillian Whyte fight.

And he put an end to speculation of a Battle of Britain showdown against Anthony Joshua.

The Gypsy King takes on Dillian Whyte with the WBC heavyweight belt up for grabs at Wembley

Fury, 33, puts his WBC heavyweight world title on the line this Saturday at Wembley against Whyte.

And in March 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***”.

However, despite an apparent U-turn on the claims, Fury told talkSPORT today he is sticking with his plan to hang up his gloves this weekend.

Speaking at an open workout, the Gypsy King said: “There’s nothing for me to achieve.

“I’ve won every belt in the world that there is to win. I’ve broke all records.

“No one in my era has won the Ring Magazine belt, only me.

“No one in my era has ever been lineal champion, only me.

“I’ve won every single belt there is to win in the sport and I’m getting out healthy, in one piece and undefeated.”

Asked to clarify if this means he’ll never face Anthony Joshua, Fury confirmed: “Nah, they’ve had their chances. That’s sailed, gone.

“They’ve had so many chances to grow a pair, step in the ring and do battle with the Gypsy King, and they didn’t do it.

“For whatever reason, whether it was gonna be money, or belts, or pride.

“They had their chance and now it’s flown away.

“I’m sorry, but this is it. Tune in now, because you’re never gonna get to see big GK in action again after this. This is it.”

Around 94,000 fans will be in the stands to see Fury take on Whyte on Saturday – with those inside the iconic stadium potentially seeing the very final rounds of a staggering career.

Fury remains unbeaten in his 32 pro bouts dating back to December 2008, winning 31 – 22 by knockout – with that one infamous draw in the first Deontay Wilder classic.

The Morecambe hero had three years away from the sport between beating Wladimir Klitschko in Dusseldorf to win the WBA, WBO, IBF and The Ring world crowns in 2015 and his comeback in Manchester against Sefer Seferi in 2018, his most recent fight on English soil.
