Wilder was undefeated and held the WBC world title before his lucrative trilogy against Fury, but suffered two knockout defeats by the Gypsy King after a draw in their first fight. 

Wilder continued: ‘It’s not about the financial things, I never have to return to boxing ever again in my life. I’ve set my life up.’

Fury, who retired after beating Dillian Whyte in April, is the only fighter to defeat Wilder.

The ‘Bronze Bomber’ has 42 wins in his career, with 41 of those coming via knockout.
