With announcements like this fans started to speculate more about Fury’s comeback. However, on his 34th birthday, the two-time heavyweight champion took to Twitter to reaffirm his retirement. He wrote :

“Massive thanks to everyone who had an input in my career…After long hard conversation Iv finally decided to walk away & on my 34th birthday I say Bon voyage.”

Fury also vacated The Ring Heavyweight titles but yet hasn’t vacated the WBC title. This has created problems for the upcoming heavyweight fight between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk.
