The 25-year-old Mancunian made the announcement on Twitter just days after David Haye, who was due to fight Fury in February, announced his own plan to retire following serious shoulder surgery.
In his tweet, Fury simply stated: ‘Hi every1 I have officially retired from boxing. There’s to many bent people in the sport. They will have to f*** some1 else. Good by boxin.’
Fury also appeared to allude to his decision to quit by changing his Twitter bio to ‘ex boxer’ and his byline to ‘Tyson avoided Fury’.
However, Peter Fury took to Twitter to put the story to bed and said his nephew would be back in the ring soon.
"Tyson will fight & win world titles but this time with real Fights!! That's what he means.— peter fury. (@peterfury) November 20, 2013
Fury was clearly enraged by Haye announcement and took to Twitter on Sunday to criticise his fellow Briton. Mick Hennessy, Fury’s promoter, said the boxer was shocked at the way things panned out with Haye but he is hoping a fight with Wilder can be arranged.
‘We have had talks with Wilder’s people and we are in discussions at the moment but obviously there are a lot of pieces of the jigsaw we need to fit together,’ Hennessy said.
‘We are looking at a number of different options but one thing we do know is that Tyson is one of the biggest draws in world boxing at the moment and as soon as he is ready we will look to get him back in the ring.’
