Tyson Fury considers retirement

Former Irish Champion Tyson Fury says he is ‘struggling to get motivated’ and suggests hanging up his gloves is an option.

Fury achieved a life long dream when he upset Wladimir Klitschko to claim the WBA, IBF and WBO titles in November.

A rematch clause means he is due to fight the former title holder in May or June, but Fury doesn’t seem to push about the return.

Indeed, he told BBC Radio 5 live that retirement has crossed his mind.

“I’m struggling to get motivated,” he said.

“I could walk away. I could just sail into the sunset unbeaten with all the belts and live a normal life.”

“All that I would be boxing for is money and I always thought to myself I never want to let sport become about money.”

“I’ve accomplished a dream,” he added. “It’s about how much motivation I have to keep going on.

“There is life after boxing and I don’t know what I’m going to do at the moment. I haven’t even cemented I am going to fight in a rematch.”

Fury has recently talked about massive fights with Deontay Wilder and future clashes with Anthony Joshua and retirement suggestions have come from left field. It’s nigh on impossible to imagine the big heavyweight will call it a day, but Fury has never been conventional.
