Tyson Fury knows he could beat Oleksandr Usyk

Tyson Fury claims he could beat Oleksandr Usyk - but is not planning to fight him.

The Gypsy King - who cemented himself as one of the all-time greatest heavyweight champions by beating Dillian Whyte with a sixth-round knockout in front of 94,000 fans in Wembley on April 23 – has said he’d punch the Ukrainian fighter around the ring as he is not a true heavyweight.

He told talkSport: “It’s never gonna happen because I’m retired,

“But let’s just say I’d punch him round the ring, because he’s a middleweight, blown up.

“I’ve already been the undisputed champion, I’ve won every single belt there is to win. I’ve got nothing more to do, I am out, fully retired. Done.”

Fury admits that he is looking forward to spending time with his family as he insists that his retirement is true.

He added: “I’ve got school runs with the kids.

“I’ve got my bin trips to the tip, washing cars down, haircuts, shaves, hoovering, cleaning up.

“The normal day-to-day stuff at home with the kids, family and wife. Weekends, I look forward to my weekends, train all week. That’s it really, just enjoy life one day at a time.”

Fury said after his win last weekend that he has never been obsessed with money.

He told BT Sport after his victory: "I've enjoyed my career, it's been a fantastic career.

"I'm 33 at the minute, every good dog has its day. I know [promoter] Frank [Warren] will be unhappy about that, and there's a lot of money to be earnt.

"But for me, I [have] come from f*** all, I've come from nothing. It's never been about money, I'm not a money person. I drive around in a 2007 [Volkswagen] Passat in diesel. I don't care! I don't care what I've got, it's never been about money to me."
