Fury’s seventh-round TKO victory over the previously undefeated Wilder saw him claim the sole title that had him.
Despite having completed the heavyweight title set, Fury is far from content with his achievements inside the ring.
Retirement, however, is certainly not on the mind of ‘The Gypsy King’, who is hoping to become undisputed heavyweight champion before it’s all said and done.
“Why walk away when I’m still only young?” Fury asked during an interview with Sky Sports.
“I’ve won every single belt in boxing. From the English title to becoming the undisputed heavyweight champ of the world. All done, all finished.
“Considered the best, done. If I don’t box again, I’m happy, but if I do box again, then I continue to box.
“If we get past this thing, which hopefully we will, then we’re going to keep boxing and just keep taking on contenders.
“Klitschko did it until he was 40. A lot of the great champions are continuing and continuing.
“I ain’t boxing for money, I ain’t boxing for fame, I ain’t boxing for a belt. I’m boxing because it keeps me mentally happy and I like to do it.
“Nothing to prove to anybody. Not one thing to prove at all, but I box now because I love boxing and I’ve been doing it all my life.”
Fury’s next outing is expected to be a trilogy fight with Wilder, which is expected to take place in Las Vegas.
The pair were set to renew their rivalry in July but had their third encounter postponed until October due to the coronavirus outbreak.
