Subsequently, Fury hinted at retirement and also revealed that he had one fight left in his contract with Top Rank Promotions and ESPN. Now, akin to most elite boxers, ‘The Gypsy King’ aired plans of promoting his own fights.

Speaking to iFL TV, he said, “I’m definitely fighting end of February, early March. One million percent. There’s no ifs, buts or maybes about it. Or I will sack my full promotional outfit, and I’ll promote myself. Gypsy King Promotions. There you go.”
