British boxer, Tyson Fury, has announced his retirement from boxing, according to the post on his Instagram page.
28-year-old Fury has not fought since his remarkable victory over Wladimir Klitschko in Dusseldorf in November 2015, due to depression and suspension by the British Boxing Board of Control.
The former WBA, IBF, IBO and WBO champion posted on his Instagram page: “Been very blessed in my life & career achieve the utmost in boxing, was an epic journey along the way.”
“Thanks to all the fans that supported & believed in me along the way.”
“Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.️ THE END.”
Tyson Fury, who had earlier retired from boxing but rescinded his decision, vacated the WBA, WBO and IBO after admitting the use of cocaine to cope with depression, and was subsequently charged for the use of prohibited substance by UK Anti-Doping.
