TYSON FURY has ripped into Anthony Joshua and claimed his heavyweight rival turned down the chance to fight SIX times.

His fans have begged the Manchester United fan to have one more bout before walking away for good.

However Fury has once again reiterated his desire to keep away from the sport in an X-rated rant.

He remarked: "I'm all out of getting punched in the face for a few quid.

"Got plenty of money, still got my faculties and brains about me.
