Tyson Fury has taken to social media to tell his followers just how much he is enjoying his retirement from heavyweight boxing, almost two weeks on from his knock-out victory over Dillian Whyte.
In what is definitely not a case of ‘the lady doth protest too much’, Fury told his fans how his retirement has been ‘a long time coming’ after going for an early morning run.
‘Just finished a lovely four mile run across the promenade,’ Fury said, alongside a caption of ‘blessed’. ‘Got a great sweat on.

Fury called time on his career in the aftermath of his victory against Dillian Whyte
The Gypsy King beat Whyte with a stunning uppercut in the sixth round of their fight
‘Very very happy and contended to be retired, a long time coming. I’m so much enjoying my retirement.’
In late April, Fury sold out Wembley stadium before defeating Whyte with a stunning uppercut in the sixth round of their showdown.
Afterwards, Fury called time on his career and said he had made a vow to his wife, Paris, to step away from the ring.
‘I’ve been in this game for 20 years, I’m 34 in a few months. This is definitely the end of the Gypsy King and I went out with a bang. Tonight was amazing but this is the end,’ he said.
But Paris herself admitted shortly after that her husband would likely come out of a retirement for a heavyweight unification fight, which would be against the winner of the Oleksandr Usyk rematch with Anthony Joshua.
‘For Tyson to keep boxing, it just seems for one reason and I know in my heart, I think the only reason that Tyson will come back is for the unification fight,’ she said.
Fury said he was retiring to stay true to a promise he had made to his wife, Paris

Fury believes Joshua will lose his rematch against the Ukrainian, saying: ‘I couldn’t give one flying hoot or sniff about that body builder, no interest When he was an unbeaten man, not a problem, when he was a champion, not a bother, but now he has nothing to offer.
‘What did he say years ago? I only want to fight the people who have the belts. All of a sudden, he doesn’t have any belts. Here’s how it goes, you heard it here first, he’s going to get busted by Usyk in the rematch if he even has the guts to take it, then he’s finished, career over.
‘Three losses, goodnight Vienna, got beat by a middleweight move over. He had the opportunity to make it all go away and let me take care of his dirty washing and pay him money to do it, but he didn’t because greed got the better of him.’
