Tyson Fury’s boxing promoter, Frank Warren has dropped his retirement hint, saying the Gispsy King could retire ‘tomorrow’ after cementing himself as the No1 heavyweight following his win against Deontay Wilder.
Fury settled his trilogy win in style against Deontay Wilder with a brutal knockout in round 11 over weekend.
He had mapped out a five-fight plan which included Wilder, Dillian Whyte, Derek Chisora and a double header with Anthony Joshua. But his promoter believe if the motivation is no longer there, the unbeaten Gypsy King could end it all.
Warren told talkSPORT: “Before the fight, he did an interview and he mapped out five fights.
“I’m just saying, if he chooses to do it, he will do it. He will do what he wants to do and no-one is going to tell him who he is going to fight.
“I tell you that now; he is the man and he will do what is necessary.
“It wouldn’t surprise me if Tyson said tomorrow, ‘I’ve had enough, I don’t fancy it.’
“If he does, he is wealthy, he has made a lot of money and he has got to do what is right for him.”
Fury, 33, was set to fight Joshua, 31, in Saudi Arabia in August after trying to walk away from his contracted trilogy with Wilder, 35. But the American took the dispute to arbitration and was awarded the verdict.
