Tyson Fury Announces Boxing Retirement – Tyson Fury has made a decision when it comes to his future in boxing. The Heavyweight fighter took to his Instagram to reveal to the world that he was retiring from boxing competition.
“Massive thanks to everyone who had an input in my career over the years,” Fury wrote. “After long hard conversations, I’ve finally decided to walk away and on my 34th birthday I say, ‘bon voyage.'”
Fury went on to thank numerous promoters, fighters, trainers, and media outlets before apologizing in case he forgot anyone. He ended his statement by thanking his wife Paris and giving props to the “Big Man Upstairs.”
From a pro wrestling perspective, Fury’s retirement opens the door even further for a WWE return. The timing seems near serendipitous with WWE Clash At The Castle happening later this month, right in Fury’s backyard of Cardiff. Before Drew McIntyre was booked to battle Roman Reigns for the WWE Undisputed Championship at the premiere live event, the original speculation was that McIntyre could face Fury. Both McIntyre and Fury have exchanged words in interviews recently calling each other out.
In a recent inteview, McIntyre spoke about the possibility of Fury’s involvement at Clash At The Castle to which McIntyre said, “maybe.”
“You see his character, how outspoken he is, very much like a pro wrestler, sports entertainer. When he was with us, he had such a respect and passion for our industry.”
