Tyson Fury, the undefeated professional boxing legend and the reigning WBC Heavyweight champion of the world, has officially come up with the announcement of his retirement, right on his 34th birthday.

Since his dominating 6th round TKO victory over Dillian Whyte on 23rd April, Tyson Fury had been engaged in conversations regarding his retirement, although, never had given a solid statement on whether he wanted to continue his career in the ring or call it quits.

The WBC themselves had nodded to be patient on their heavyweight champ’s decision, as was the entire combat sports fandom. Even though he recently called out Derek Chisora for a trilogy fight, “The Gypsy King” has now confirmed his retirement.

“Massive thanks to everyone who had an input in my career over the years & after long hard conversations I’ve finally decided to walk away & on my 34th birthday I say Bon voyage,” Fury posted across his social media platforms.

He also added a photo of himself along with Steward.
