It's been almost two years since Tyson Fury last entered the boxing ring - how time flies.

His last bout was against Wladimir Klitschko, who he dethroned as world heavyweight champion at the Esprit Arena, Dusseldorf, via unanimous decision.

Boxing fans have been awaiting his return for a long time and at one point it seemed like one was on the cards.

However, a combination of medical problems, doping accusations and a lack of a boxing license have prevented him from reigniting his career.

Even Anthony Joshua wants to see the Gypsy King back in the ring. He said last month, per Sky Sports: "In my heart, I do.

"It's all we know. It's what we've given our youth to, and our young adult life to.

"You can have a year or two off through mistakes and complacency but, deep down, it's all you know so you'll always come home. The boxing ring is where he will find peace."

Safe to say it's been a frustrating few years for Fury and it would appear the 29-year-old has finally had enough.

Fury has revealed on Twitter that he will not be applying for a boxing license, which suggests his boxing career has come to an end once and for all.

He wrote (see below): After thinking long & hard about my return I will not be applying for aBBBOCboxinglicense. After they way they have handled stuff. No thanks."


The British Boxing Board of Control (BBBOFC) has refused to give Fury his license until he's cleared of doping, which has resulted in the Brit calling it quits.

He can, of course, apply for an Irish license, but no one is buying it. This isn't the first time Fury has hinted at retirement and boxing fans think he's just up to his old tricks.
