Tyson Fury reiterates seriousness about retiring after next fight
Tyson Fury, the WBC heavyweight champion, has stated that he intends to retire from professional boxing after his April bout with Dillian Whyte for the WBC championship.
Fury has declared that he has made all of the money he would ever need and does not want to live a lavish lifestyle like Muhammad Ali or Evander Holyfield.
Fury told BT Sport, “The only thing I can gain is money.” “So, by the end of this struggle, I’ll have made over a hundred million pounds. I don’t think I deserve any more if I can spend that much.
“I’m aware that Mike Tyson spent half a billion dollars, Evander Holyfield $400 million, and so on, but I don’t live their extravagant lifestyles.
“I reside in the Lancashire town of Morecambe. It is inexpensive there. I don’t have any major vices, such as gambling large sums of money. Nothing is done by me. I’ll never be able to spend the money I have.
“I have a lot of things I want to achieve, and a lot of possibilities that don’t need me to suffer brain damage.” I have six children and a wife. When does enough become enough?
“Why do I have to be one of those individuals who got hurt because they went on too long?” Just had one too many brawls and squandered everything for what? Is it possible to get a couple additional pounds?
“I want to retire as the world’s undisputed heavyweight champion.” I want to direct a Netflix documentary and a Hollywood film, as well as be a decent husband, parent, and son.
“I mostly just want to be happy, and that’s probably the most difficult thing for me.”
