Fury hinted at retirement following his 32nd victory of his legendary career. 

And speaking in his post-fight press conference, the 33-year-old explained why he won't be lured out of retirement by money.

"Every good dog has its day," he said. ​

"And I know Frank (Warren) will be unhappy about that. And Top Rank, there's a lot of money to be earned.

"But, for me, I come from f**k all, I come from nothing. It's never been about money, I'm not a money person.

"I drive around in a 07 Passat on 56-point diesel. I don't care, I don't care what I've got."

Fury added: "It's never been about money with me. I know a lot of people with money, big money - but none of them are happy.

"Not one of them. And I know money can't make happiness. It's not even been about belts with me, it's not been about legacies.

"It's not been about anything apart from punching a motherf**king face in on the night.

"That's all it's ever been about, excuse the language.

"All I ever want to do is win, money aside. Money is beautiful, it's great. It's great to be paid for what you do."
