Tyson Fury to ‘walk away’ from boxing after short-lived comeback flirtation

LONDON – Tyson Fury has decided to “walk away” from boxing just three days after saying he would return to the sport.

Fury turned 34 on Friday and posted a message on social media stating: “A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed to my career over the years and after long, hard discussions (I’ve finally made the decision) to go, and on my 34th birthday I say bon voyage.”

That seemingly puts Fury back into retirement after announcing on Tuesday he would be returning to boxing for a fight against Derek Chisora, a compatriot he defeated twice earlier in his career.

That announcement had sparked speculation that Fury, the reigning WBC heavyweight champion, was targeting a possible unification bout against the winner between Oleksandr Usyk, the reigning WBA, IBF and WBO titlist, and Anthony Joshua, who is scheduled to die on August 20 in Fighting Saudi Arabia.

Fury did not give a reason for his obvious change of heart.

The undefeated Fury initially said he was retiring from the sport after beating Dillian Whyte at Wembley in April.
