Tyson Fury’s wife fears there is “no chance” he will retire despite the heavyweight world champ declaring his defeat of Dillian Whyte marked the “end of the road for the Gypsy King.”

Fury, 33, retained his WBC belt – and pocketed £22million – with a sixth-round stoppage against his fellow Brit, roared on by a large chunk of the 94,000 crowd.

Noel Gallagher, Frank Bruno, Danny Dyer and daughter Dani were among those filling Wembley, in what is believed to be European boxing’s biggest ever gate.

But after his victory, 6ft 9in Fury who is now worth £65m, promised to keep his word to wife Paris and hang up his gloves.

“That’s me, I’m done. I’m out,” he said.

“I’m going to spend my time now with my family and kids, school runs, tip runs, s****** nappies and that’s it. I’m going to train the boys up and enjoy my life.”

I added: “I’ve been in this game for 20 years, amateur and professional.

“I believed I owed the fans one last showdown and to do it at Wembley was phenomenal but I’d say this was definitely the end for the Gypsy King.

“I went out with a bang. This is the end.”

However the dad-of-six told, whose stands at 32 wins – and one draw against Deontay Wilder – from 33 fights, told reporters he would not rule out exhibition matches.

And while he was saying “I’ve won every belt there is to win, there’s nothing more I can do,” Paris, 31, was seen mouthing in the background “no chance”.

Paris later said she feels it would “not be possible” for Tyson to live a quiet life.

She told of “different avenues” he would probably go down, adding: “I’d be worried to death if he did. He’d probably want to be a WWE star or something crazy like that. Everyone knows he’s the best.”

She said of his victory: “It was the perfect ending. I would like him to come home now, he has nothing more to prove.

“We are very blessed not to need more money. The man has done everything he could ever do. Everyone can agree everyone knows who is the greatest now.”

But after Saturday’s fight, Tyson said: “Doesn’t get any darker than committing suicide and I was there.

“To come back and to lose all that weight and get back mentally. You should never let anybody crush your dreams because anything is possible and I’m proof that is true.”
