Nicknamed “The Gypsy King,” the British fighter Fury calls it quits with an undefeated 32-0-1 record. He will go down in history for his iconic trilogy with Deontay Wilder (in which Fury picked up two knockout wins and a draw). Fury also defeated Wladimir Klitschko, the great of the previous heavyweight generation, in a 2015 clash. The most recent fight for Fury came last April when he stopped Dillian Whyte by sixth-round TKO.
In addition to his proficiency in the ring, Fury also has plenty of personality, so this probably is not the last we have seen of him in the public eye. In fact, we already know of one potential career that Fury might like to take up next.
