Tyson Fury has confirmed that his boxing career as speculation linking him with a return to WWE continues.

After out-classing Dillian White at Wembley in April to retain his WBC Heavyweight Championship and remain undefeated, Tyson Fury announced his intention to retire from boxing. However, proclamations of retirement from prize fighters in the aftermath of victory is nothing new, so many fans questioned whether the star would actually walk away from the sport.

There was also the prospect of a showdown with the winner of the upcoming bout between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk.

Despite this Fury took to social media on his 34th birthday to reiterate his desire to retire. In a post on Instagram, the ‘Gypsy King’ said that it was time to say “bon voyage.”

“Massive thanks to everyone who had an input in my career over the years. After long hard conversations, I’ve finally decided to walk away and on my 34th birthday I say, ‘bon voyage.'”

Interestingly, this could potentially open the door for a return to WWE for the star. While many had suggested that Fury might face Drew McIntyre at Clash At The Castle following their barbs on social media, the Scottish Warrior is now scheduled for meeting with Roman Reigns at the British event.

Back in July it was reported that Fury was in talks with WWE over a return, although no concrete plans had been confirmed.

Tyson Fury made his first appearance with WWE back in early October 2019. The undefeated fighter confronted Braun Strowman during an episode of SmackDown while he was watching as a ‘fan’ before eventually going on to face Strowman at Crown Jewel.

In Saudi Arabia, Fury won the match knocking out his rival. Fury later briefly teamed with Strowman at a SmackDown taping in Manchester, England the following month.
