TYSON FURY has revealed he retired from boxing over fears he could one day be left in a wheelchair.
The Gypsy King brought the curtain down on his perfect career in April following a brutal sixth-round TKO victory over Dillian Whyte at Wembley.
Boxing fans across the globe are hoping Fury will come out of retirement for a blockbuster undisputed title fight with the winner of Anthony Joshua’s rematch with Oleksandr Usyk.
But the fear of suffering a debilitating injury has well and truly made the father of six’s mind up.
Fury said: “People say, ‘One more, two more.’ But if I was in a wheelchair and say, ‘I had four more fights guys and got brain damage.’
“I’m the one getting punched in the head by these giant men… I mean it, people. I’ve had enough and I don’t wanna fight no more.”
Former unified heavyweight champ Fury is well and truly content with his career – despite the historic title of undisputed king being within touching distance.
He said: “I’ve been on the road for 13 years as a professional, went all over the world and fought the best fighters in the world.
“The Americans, the Africans, the Germans – I fought them all, and all of them fell.
“They all fall to the fat f***er from the north of England.”
He added: “There’s seven billion people in the world. Just think about that number – seven billion people and I’m the f***ing heavyweight champion of the world.
“Number one. Out of all those people, the biggest, fattest, baldest, ugliest motherf***er on the planet, that’s me.”
Although Fury is happy with his exploits, the prospect of a historic domestic dust-up with Joshua intrigues him.
He said: “It’s all about money, Mr Businessman – he’s not a fighting man.
“I swear to God I hope he wins the fight against [Oleksandr] Usyk so that I can come out of retirement and fight him for free.
“However, the terms are this – I want it at Wembley stadium, I want it free to enter and I want it on free-to-air in television in this country.
“I’ll fight him in England, not abroad in a foreign country for more money, here for free for the people.”
