Speaking about his future in the sport, Fury said afterwards: “I promised my lovely wife of 14 years, Paris, that after the Wilder 3 fight, that would be it. And I meant it. We had a war, it was a great trilogy. And I meant that.
“But I got offered to fight at Wembley at home, and I believe that I deserved – that I owed it to the fans, I owed it to every person in the United Kingdom to come here and fight at Wembley.
“Now it’s all done, and I have to be a man of my word. And I think this is it, this might be the final curtain for the 'Gypsy King'. And what a way to go out! A big thank you to the United Kingdom!”
Promoter Frank Warren was just one of the people full of praise for Fury after the fight, saying: “For me, he is without a doubt the best heavyweight of his generation.”
There were plenty of people on social media echoing that sentiment too, declaring Fury one of the greatest ever.
