WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has reiterated that he is planning to retire in order to spend more time with Paris, his wife, and their six children.

Fury, who defeated Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium last Saturday, stressed that no amount of money could convince him to change his mind in the near future.

“This is the truth, the gospel truth, nothing but the truth – I’m done,” Fury told Piers Morgan.

“Every good dog has its day. Like a great Roman leader said, there will always be somebody else to fight.

“When is enough enough? I’m happy, I’m healthy, I’ve still got my brains, I can still talk. I’ve got a beautiful wife, I’ve got six kids. I’ve got umpteen belts, I’ve got plenty of money. I’ve got success, fame, glory. What more am I doing it for?

“Boxing’s a very dangerous sport, you can be taken out with one punch as we’ve seen on Saturday night, and it only takes one unlucky blow and you may not get up off that canvas.

“I’m quitting while I’m ahead. I’m undefeated, only the second man in history to retire undefeated heavyweight champion. I’m very, very happy and very content in my heart with what I’ve done, what I’ve achieved.

“It’s not about money for me. A lot of people in this world, everything is about money, and more money and more money. I’ve got enough money. I’ve got enough of everything I need. I’m a very simple man. I drive an 07 VW Passat. I’m a very normal person, I don’t need tons of money to impress everybody.”
