This has led to some questioning whether his focus is still firmly on boxing ahead of the Deontay Wilder rematch planned for February.

When asked if he could reassure fans of his dedication to the sport, Fury candidly admitted to talkSPORT.com: “I can’t. I can’t reassure them of anything.

“I’ve got three more fights left and that’s it. That’s what my contract states: ‘Three more fights and Fury’s gone’.

“I might become a tennis player or something, who knows? Whatever sport I put my hand to, I know I’ll be successful at.”

In February, Fury signed a multi-million dollar five-fight deal to be co-promoted by Bob Arum’s Top Rank on ESPN, alongside original promoter Frank Warren.

With two bouts against Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin now out of the way, the 31-year-old is ready to step things up again by taking big fights before a potential retirement.

Fury concluded: “All this reassurance, how can I reassure them?

“If you said to me, are you focused on boxing? No, I’m not focused on boxing. I’ve got bigger fish to fry at the moment.

“It’s November/December, I’ve got Christmas coming up. I’ll focus on boxing when I go back into training camp for sure.”
