Tyson Fury retirement explained (sort of)

By Karl Freitag

Peter Fury, trainer and uncle of Tyson Fury, has explained the “retirement” announcement by the unbeaten 25-year-old heavyweight contender on Wednesday.

The 6’9 Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KOs) tweeted earlier in the day that he was “officially retired from boxing.”

Via @peterfury, Peter tried to clarify what Tyson meant. “Tyson will fight and win world titles but this time with real fights! That’s what he means. You will not see Tyson in the ring unless it’s a worthy opponent and if boxing is anything like he’s had to endure re the Haye camp, [you] can keep it.”
