Piers Morgan pours his heart out to Fury – but Gypsy King leaves him red-faced

Piers Morgan was left red-faced after paying a glowing tribute to WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, only for some technical difficulties to mean the Gypsy King had not heard what he said.

Fury was speaking to Morgan on his new show Piers Morgan Uncensored on TalkTV, where he doubled down on his retirement claims and insisted he was "done" with boxing. At the end of the interview, Morgan lauded Fury as a "great champion" and claimed he has "had one of the all-time great careers as a boxer".

However, Fury did not hear Morgan's comments due to some apparent technical difficulties. "I've interviewed you many times and I think you've had one of the all-time great careers as a boxer," Morgan said.

"If this really is the end, I just want to thank you on behalf of all the fans around the world and all the sports lovers for everything you've done because you've made us all proud.

"Particularly in this country, you've made us proud to be British and you're just a great champion. So, thank you very much for everything that you've done."

Morgan's compliment was followed by a brief awkward silence, before Fury muttered: "He's gone." Morgan then added: "Oh he's gone, he didn't hear my compliment!"

Earlier in the interview, Fury insisted "no amount of material assets or money" will tempt him out of retirement, with his recent victory over Dillian Whyte at Wembley his final fight. "The fans will always want more, they're always baying for more blood but I don't have anything more to give," Fury said.

"I've given everything I've got. I've been a professional for 14 years and I've been boxing for 20 years. Every good dog has its day in the sun and it's my time to go out on a high.

"They will not forget the Gypsy King in a hurry. No amount of material assets or money will make me come back out of retirement because I'm very happy."
