Tyson Fury told why he decided to end his career
Fury once again confirmed that the fight with White will be the last fight of his career. This time Tyson has made a residual decision and has no plans to return to the ring.
“For some reason everyone thinks I’m continuing my career just to make money. But money is no longer the determining factor for me, I achieved everything I wanted. I don’t owe anybody anything, I proved everything I wanted.
Of course, everyone reproaches me with the money fights, that I have to continue, but that’s the end of it, even though no one believes me. My decision won’t affect my fight with White in any way, I’ll get in the ring and do my job,” Fury told Top Rank Boxing on YouTube.
Fury, 33, has had 32 fights in his career and has yet to know the bitterness of defeat. Tyson currently holds the WBC championship belt.
