(ANSA) – LONDON, AUG 12 – The Wbc heavyweight champion, the British Tyson Fury, announced on his 34th birthday that he is retiring from boxing with immediate effect. “A huge thank you to all those who have contributed to my career over the years – wrote Fury on Twitter -. After long and difficult conversations and reflections, I finally decided to leave and, today is my 34 / o birthday, I say Happy Travel “.

The announcement of the world champion with gypsy origins in Britain was greeted with skepticism, because it is not the first time that Fury has said he wants to give up boxing, only to return to his decision. Moreover, if he really retired, he would lose the chance to face the winner of the second match between Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua, on August 20, to unify all the world heavyweight titles. But now it seems that the desire to retire unbeaten has prevailed in the British with a record of 32 wins and a draw from 33 matches. Already in April Fury, after the ‘battle’ with Dillian Whyte, had said that he would retire because “I have 150 million in the bank and nothing to prove”.

Among those who don’t believe him is promoter Frank Warren.

“I think what will happen is that Fury will see how the match on August 20 (Usyk-Joshua ed) goes and then decide what to do.

But I think he will come back, because he is a fighter and he misses boxing. This is what he does, and he will want to fight. “(ANSA).
