Tyson Fury's trainer dismisses talk of retirement

Most of what Tyson Fury says should be taken with a pinch of salt.

Now even his uncle is refusing to listen to the heavyweight, after insisting Fury's claims he is set to retire after his rematch against Wladimir Klitschko are complete nonsense. 

Peter Fury, who is also his trainer, told Sky Sports:

Fury not walking away 

"The only way Tyson will walk away from boxing is if he gets nailed to the canvas. There's your answer on that."

"Tyson is always on the wind-up. He's training probably the hardest and the best he's ever trained in his life."

Incredibly, he also suggested he could fight on for another decade, despite the fighter recently telling a press conference that he hates boxing and only does it for the money. He is unbeaten in 25 professional fights. 

Joshua awaits 

He will face Klitschko again on July 9 in Manchester, with the Ukranian hoping to earn his WBA and WBO titles back having lost them to the British boxer in November in Dusseldorf. 

The result of the rematch could affect Fury's long-term plans, but if what his uncle says is true, it's certainly good news for the heavyweight division.

It will be particularly welcomed by Anthony Joshua, who is set to fight Fury if he wins his own bout against Dominic Breazeale in London on June 25. 

That fight was originally going to take place on July 9, the same night as Fury, but Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn has moved the fight forward, ostensibly because fans were unhappy at having to choose between the two. 

Judging by Fury's recent statements, he is well up for the fight if Joshua does make the challenge. 

Fury has been antagonising the Olympic champion with a series of tweets, which suggests he is interested in at least one more fight. 

On the move

Unfortunately for British fans, though, Fury could continue his career away from the UK, as he feels more appreciated in the USA. 

Fury's bravado has meant that he has not always been given a warm reception when fighting in England, but the 27-year-old has also suggested another reason, telling Sky Sports: "I am not accepted in this country because I am a gypsy.

"I am moving out of the country to America where champions are properly thought of."
