Boxing fans across the globe are hoping Fury will come out of retirement for a blockbuster undisputed title fight with the winner of Anthony Joshua’s rematch with Oleksandr Usyk.

But the fear of suffering a debilitating injury has well and truly made the father of six’s mind up.

Fury said: “People say, ‘One more, two more.’ But if I was in a wheelchair and say, ‘I had four more fights guys and got brain damage.’

“I’m the one getting punched in the head by these giant men… I mean it, people. I’ve had enough and I don’t wanna fight no more.”

Former unified heavyweight champ Fury is well and truly content with his career – despite the historic title of undisputed king being within touching distance.

He said: “I’ve been on the road for 13 years as a professional, went all over the world and fought the best fighters in the world.

“The Americans, the Africans, the Germans – I fought them all, and all of them fell.

“They all fall to the fat f***er from the north of England.”

He added: “There’s seven billion people in the world. Just think about that number – seven billion people and I’m the f***ing heavyweight champion of the world.

“Number one. Out of all those people, the biggest, fattest, baldest, ugliest motherf***er on the planet, that’s me.”

Although Fury is happy with his exploits, the prospect of a historic domestic dust-up with Joshua intrigues him.

He said: “It’s all about money, Mr Businessman – he’s not a fighting man.

“I swear to God I hope he wins the fight against [Oleksandr] Usyk so that I can come out of retirement and fight him for free.

“However, the terms are this – I want it at Wembley stadium, I want it free to enter and I want it on free-to-air in television in this country.

“I’ll fight him in England, not abroad in a foreign country for more money, here for free for the people.”
