Tyson Fury has ruled out an undisputed title fight with Oleksandr Usyk, saying: ‘It’s never gonna happen.’

The Gypsy King produced a stunning sixth round knockout of Dillian Whyte to successfully defend his WBC heavyweight title at Wembley Stadium last Saturday.

Afterwards he was asked about the prospect of a unification fight with the winner of Usyk’s rematch with British rival Anthony Joshua.

But Fury said he has no interest in fighting either AJ or Usyk as he is now happily retired and wants to spend time with his family.

Speaking to talkSPORT, he said: “I’ve already been the undisputed champion.

“I’ve won every single belt there is to win.

“I’ve got nothing more to do, I am out, fully retired. Done.

“[Fighting Usyk] is never gonna [sic] happen because I’m retired, but let’s just say I’d punch him round the ring.

“Because he’s a middleweight, blown up.

“I am retired so what I wanna do is chill out with my family and enjoy the rest of my life.

“Who knows what the future holds?

“But as of yet I’m just enjoying myself and I’m gonna grow my hair back I think!

“I’ve got school runs with the kids, I’ve got my bin trips to the tip, washing cars down, haircuts, shaves, hoovering, cleaning up.

“The normal day-to-day stuff at home with the kids, family and wife.

“Weekends, I look forward to my weekends, I train all week.

“That’s it really, just enjoy life one day at a time.”

It comes after his wife Paris claimed that Joshua and Usyk are the only ones who could lure Fury out of retirement.

After the fight, she said: “I would like him to come home now.

“He has nothing more to prove.

“That’s the thing, if he had anything left to do, I’d say, ‘Yeah Tyson, you do it’.

“He has nothing to prove so unless he really wants to box on and if he’s just doing it for whatever, money, fame, he doesn’t need that.

“He’s the most famous man on the planet tonight.

“He does not need to be any more famous.

“We’re very blessed and lucky not to need any more money.

“I mean, the man has done everything he ever could do.

“I’m happy with where we are and what we’ve got and for Tyson to keep boxing it just seems for one reason.

“I know in my heart the only reason Tyson would come back is for a unification fight.

“I think that would be only the reason Tyson would come back to the ring because he has nothing left to prove, to keep boxing on, there’s nothing there for him.”
