Tyson Fury Announces Retirement In Profane Tweet, Un-Retires Hours Later


Tyson Fury either can’t make up his mind or he’s just one big troll.

Three days after reportedly testing positive for cocaine, the English boxer announced he’s showing himself out of the ring for good in an expletive-laden tweet.


But a few hours later, Fury pulled a Conor McGregor and said he’s not retired.

It didn’t stop there. Fury promised that once he “gets better,” he would make a triumphant comeback.

Fury ended Wladimir Klitschko’s reign as world heavyweight champion last year and was set for a rematch later this month in his hometown of Lancaster, England, before suddenly pulling out of the fight last week.

Promoter Mick Hennessy deemed that Fury was “declared medically unfit to fight.” Shortly after, Fury’s urine sample came back positive for cocaine and there’s a chance that the 28-year-old will be forced to give up his world heavyweight title belts.
