, Tyson Fury doubles down on claim he will retire after Whyte and reveals dream to star in Netflix documentary and movie

TYSON FURY has doubled down on his retirement claim, revealing that he’d like to star in a Netflix series and Hollywood movie.

The Gypsy King, 33, recently stunned fans by saying that his April 23 fight with Dillian Whyte at Wembley will be his last.

Some have wondered whether the undefeated heavyweight is merely trying to drum up interest in the all-British bout.

But in an interview with BT Sport Fury has stuck to his guns, claiming he’ll have made all the cash that he could possibly need.

He told Carl Frampton: “The only thing I can gain is money.

“So after this fight I’ll have earned over £100million. If I can spend that, I don’t deserve any more, do I?

“I know Mike Tyson spent half a billion and Evander Holyfield 400million and all the rest, but I don’t live their big flash lifestyles.

“I live in Morecambe, in Lancashire. It’s cheap there. I don’t have any big habits like I’m gambling tons of money away.

“I don’t do anything. I can never spend the money I’ve got.

“I’ve got stuff I want to do, a lot of opportunities that don’t involve me getting brain damage.

“I’ve got six kids and a wife. When is enough enough?

“Why do I have to be one of those people who went on too long and got injured?

“Just had one too many fights and blew it all for what? A few more quid?”

He then added that he’d like to do a film – with a star-studded cast.

Fury said: “I have been offered Hollywood movies plenty of times. But they will 100 per cent do a movie about me one day.

“The Rock plays me in the movie, my brother The Rock. It could either be me or The Rock who plays me in the movie.

“I want to retire on top, unbeaten heavyweight champion of the world. I want to do a Netflix documentary, a Hollywood movie, and be a good husband, father and son.

“Most of all I just want to be happy, and that’s probably the hardest thing.”

Should he call it quits, Fury will turn his back on a potential title unification fight with Oleksandr Usyk, as well as a battle with old foe Anthony Joshua.

As for his TV dreams, Fury has already starred in a behind the scenes ITV docu-series.

The 2020 production followed his comeback journey, with viewers getting an exclusive look at his victory over Tom Schwartz and controversial draw with Deontay Wilder.
