Tyson Fury opens up on retirement plan and aims dig at Anthony Joshua over belts
Tyson Fury admits he will seriously consider retirement after two more fights.
Fury become heavyweight world champion for the second time when he demolished Deontay Wilder to claim his WBC belt in Las Vegas on February 22.
Whilst there were instant calls for a fight with Anthony Joshua to become undisputed king of the most lucrative division, Wilder has activated his rematch clause for a trilogy fight.
The pair are set to do battle for a third time in Las Vegas in July whilst Joshua will defend his belts against IBF mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on June 20.
Appearing on ITV's This Morning, Fury suggested he sees himself taking on Wilder then Joshua before hanging up the gloves.
And he aimed a dig at Joshua by claiming he is still the rightful owner of his WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO belts, which he won in sensational fashion from Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 before three years out of the sport battling mental health issues.

Fury said: "I've got two more fights left, then we're going to really think about what we do from there.
"How long does a piece of string go on? I'm 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 health issues, so they're my belts. Until a man is defeated in a boxing ring, how can you pretend to be the champion?"
Discussing his plans after retirement, Fury revealed he is in the process of looking to open a local boxing club near his Morecambe base.
He said: "I'm opening a local boxing club now where I am, I'm in the process of doing it.
"Like I had a chance to walking into a boxing club as a kid and do what I did today, I want to give other kids that opportunity.

"I just want to be positive and encourage kids to follow their dreams like I followed mine.
"So many people said it was impossible to do, so I know what it's like to be told you can't do something.
"I want to tell people everything is possible if you put your mind to it."

His wife, Paris, joined him on This Morning and added: "I don't think he could ever just leave boxing because it's such a big part of his life.
"If he did open a gym, did stay involved, I think that would be great. I think that's a good thing to do.
"We've got other business we're involved in, but there's no real pleasure. It's not boxing, is it?"
