Tyson Fury has announced his 'retirement' from boxing on Twitter as the fallout from the collapse of his fight with David Haye continues.

The British heavyweight saw his fight with the former world champion cancelled in September after the Londoner suffered a cut eye in training,

The fight was rescheduled for February but again that had to be cancelled after Haye was forced to have shoulder surgery.

Whether Fury's proclamation will be taken seriously by the boxing community remains to be seen.

Fury is still only 25-years-old and has a perfect record of 21 professional victories from 21 fights.

The 6' 9" former British and Commonwealth champion has admitted struggling to cope with depression in the past.

"One minute I'm over the moon and the next minute I feel like getting in my car and running it into a wall at a hundred miles an hour. I don't know what's wrong with me. I'm messed up."
