31-year-old Tyson, made this known days after he knocked down Deontay Wilder, his American opponent twice before his team threw in the towel in the seventh round to end the bout.

However, there will be a summer trilogy fight between the pair after Bronze Bomber called for a rematch after the shocking defeat.

Tyson Fury who appeared on ‘This Morning’ with his wife Paris Fury, opened up on his future plans to take on Anthony Joshua after his rematch with Deontay Wilder, and then retire from boxing.

“I’ve got two more fights left, then we’re going to really think about what we do from there,” he said.

“How long does a piece of string go on? I’ undefeated in 31 professional fights and this is my 12th year as a professional.

“I’ve already been the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. When I beat Klitschko I had all the belts, so as far as I’m concerned Anthony Joshua just has my leftovers.

“I never lost those belts, I had to take time out to deal with mental issues, so they’re my belts. Until a man is defeated in a boxing ring, how can you pretend to be the champion?”

He also revealed that this time, he is better equipped to deal with the fame and pressure that comes with being a world champion.
