GOOD MORNING BOXING FANS
Tyson Fury claims he could be one fight from retirement.
And his thrillogy victim Deontay Wilder faces hand surgery as the cost of his second defeat to the Brit adds up.
Fury retained his WBC heavyweight crown with a victory over American Wilder that Mike Tyson rated one of the all-time great bouts.
Now the Gypsy King could fight Anthony Joshua’s conqueror Oleksandr Usyk to unify the world titles, or hope the Ukrainian steps aside to allow a crowd-pulling clash with AJ.
But Fury said: “I don’t know what’s going to happen.
“I’ve got one fight left on my contract with Top Rank and ESPN and we’ll see what that is.
“But I’m not thinking about boxing right now. I don’t know how many fights I’ve got left.
“I don’t know if I need to fight any more.”
Meanwhile, Fury’s promoter Frank Warren claims his man “beats Joshua in every department”.
Warren said: “Tyson always felt, and I think anybody who watched the fight against Wilder would agree, that he had AJ’s number.
“He’s got a great chin, a bigger heart, he punches as hard as AJ – I don’t care what anyone says, look at those knockdowns against Wilder.
“And, by the way, would AJ beat Wilder? I don’t think he would have done, on that performance I saw.”
Fellow promoter Eddie Hearn Hearn told iFL TV: “Wilder shouldn’t be disheartened – because Fury is a brilliant fighter.
“But I don’t know how much he’s going to want it after that. I just think Fury’s got his number and absolutely terrorised him mentally.”
