    Fury to ‘walk away’ from boxing after short-lived comeback

    LONDON (AP) – Tyson Fury has decided to “walk away” from boxing, only three days after saying he was returning to the sport.

    Fury turned 34 on Friday and posted a message on social media saying: “Massive thanks to everyone who had an input in my career over the years & after long hard conversations (I’ve finally) decided to walk away & on my 34th birthday I say Bon voyage.”

    That seemingly puts Fury back into retirement, after he announced on Tuesday that he was returning to boxing to set up a fight against Derek Chisora, a fellow Briton whom he beat twice early in his career.

    Fury did not give a reason for his apparent change of heart.

    The undefeated Fury initially said after his win over Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium in April that he was retiring from the sport.
