Tyson Fury planning on recording a music album after boxing retirement
| Last updated
Tyson Fury is swapping the 12-ounce boxing gloves for a microphone.
That's right, the 'Gypsy King' is planning on recording and releasing an album after confirming his retirement from boxing.
Still undefeated inside the ring, Fury has arguably retired in the prime of his career, but insists he is putting his health first.
You can't knock him for that, although there have been plenty of talks about a potential comeback in the last few weeks.
The man himself has now officially put those rumours to bed, conforming he won't ever be stepping inside a ring to fight again.
He does, however, plan on stepping into the recording booth.
"I’ve done well out of boxing. The world is open to so many things now. I’m doing a Netflix documentary at the moment," Fury told Ring Magazine.
"I’m going to be recording an album soon. Who knows, you might even see me on the silver screen."
He also told Pitch Boxing: "Yeah, I might do a little bit with Ed Sheeran or Adele."
Whether Fury possesses the voice of Andrea Bocelli or boasts the same lyrical ability as Kendrick Lamar remains to be seen.
Either way, you can guarantee people will listen to his tracks.
Recent talks of a trilogy fight with Derek Chisora sent the boxing world in the meltdown.
Fans thought Fury was well and truly done with the sport after announcing that he'd retired following his knockout victory over Dillian Whyte in their grudge match.
But just as we thought we'd get to witness the 'Gypsy King' in action for one last time, he suddenly came out and said that his second coming wasn't happening.
Taking to social media, he wrote: "Massive thanks to everyone who had an input in my career over the years and after long hard conversations, I've finally decided to walk away & on my 34th birthday I say Bon Voyage.
"Here's a few who have made it special along the way."
