Tyson Fury has nothing “left to prove” in his boxing career.

The Gypsy King won his last fight against Derek Chisora to retain his WBC heavyweight title in December last year and he’s not interested in fighting again because he has “achieved it all” and would rather retire at the top.

He told Britain’s OK! magazine: “I’ve retired and come back more times than a boomerang.

“However with boxing it’s a very dangerous sport if you let it get the better of you and I’ve been taking punches to the head for over 20 years.

“I’ve achieved it all and made a ton of money, but I don’t have anything else left to prove.

“I can walk away undefeated and heavyweight champion of the world – and with a load of cash.

“It’s always good to retire on top.”

Tyson was just 17 when he met wife Paris – who is pregnant with their seventh child – and the 35 year old credits their relationship for keeping him alive.

He said: “I truly believe if I hadn’t been with Paris from being a young kid then I probably wouldn’t be here any more. That’s a fact.

“In life, you only get what’s supposed to be for you and no more, nothing less.

“We’ve grown up together from kids, we’ve had good and bad times but we’re here for the long run.

“What doesn’t break us makes us stronger and nothing can ever come between us.

“If something was going to happen, it would have done so already.

“Regardless of the boxing, regardless of the fame and fortune, if we end up in a carboard box in a local park then I think we could still be happy.”
