Tyson Fury announces retirement from boxing again

Tyson Fury announces his retirement from boxing, despite recently claiming that he wants to take on Anthony Joshua.

Former world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has announced his retirement from boxing.

The 28-year-old has publicly called time on his career a handful of times since beating Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015, but has reversed his decisions.

Fury, who took time off due to mental health issues, is currently suspended by the British Boxing Board of Control due to alleged doping.

The controversial sportsman recently claimed that he is in line to face the current IBF and WBA heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua in April next year.

However, judging from his social media accounts, Fury has called it quits. He wrote on Instagram: "Been very blessed in my life & career achieve the upmost in boxing, was a epic journey along the way. Thanks to all the fans that supported & believed in me along the way, Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. THE END."

Fury has an unbeaten record in the ring, having fought 25 times and winning all of them, with 18 by way of knockout.
