Tyson Fury has revealed he rejected the chance to swap his bald bonce for a full head of hair.

The heavyweight world champion began his career with flowing locks but has slowly but surely shed his curls.

And as he looks forward to a double-header with fellow Brit Anthony Joshua next year, Fury has no plans to turn to clock back.

"I have had an offer from the leading hair transplant people in the world - on Harley Street in London - to have the full head of hair back, but I have politely declined," he said.

"That’s the old Tyson who used to have masses of curly hair, the big black mop of stallion hair.

"But I am not 17 or 21 any more, the Gypsy King is now a bald guy and I like it.

"Me and my wife, Paris, agreed if I put the hair back on I'll just be trying to turn back the clock and I only want to look forward."

Fury, who was the highest-earning fighter in the world last year, can look forward to three more huge pay days in the next 18 months.

The 31-year-old will take on Deontay Wilder for a third time later this year with Australia, New Zealand and Macau vying to host the trilogy clash.

And if he retains his world title, Fury will then clash twice with Joshua in 2021 after the rivals agreed terms this week.

Fury could earn a staggering £200million for those three fights and become the undisputed heavyweight world champion.

And he has vowed to put an end to not just Joshua's career - but that of his promoter Eddie Hearn as well.

"The fact is, if you take Anthony Joshua out of Matchroom, then they don’t really have a great deal of anything," Fury said.

"I know they have some other fighters but the cash cow for them, on the pay-per-views, is Joshua and if you take him away there is not much left.

"They have some champions, good guys and prospects but not pay-per-view stars.

"If he gets beat - which they know he will - then it almost puts an end to their big-time promoting."
