Frank Warren would not be surprised if Tyson Fury retired tomorrow after knocking out Deontay Wilder as Anthony Joshua locks in Oleksandr Usyk rematch

Frank Warren has admitted he would not be surprised if Tyson Fury announced his retirement tomorrow after his thrilling victory against Deontay Wilder.

The WBC and Ring Magazine heavyweight champion retained his belts in one of the greatest heavyweight title fights of all time in Las Vegas.

Fury’s trilogy fight with Wilder was an instant classic

Having dropped Wilder in round three, it was Fury who clambered off the canvas himself twice to floor his American adversary and bring their trilogy to a conclusive end.

What is next for Fury remains to be seen as Anthony Joshua is locked into a rematch with Oleksandr Usyk to tie up the remaining three major world heavyweight title belts.

Provided Dillian Whyte can get past Otto Wallin on October 30 at the 02 Arena, it is likely the WBC will sanction a fight between the two Brits and enforce Fury to fight his first mandatory title defence.

Yet Warren, who has helped mastermind the incredible comeback of the ‘Gypsy King’, insists the heavyweight champ will dictate exactly how his career pans out – for as long as it lasts.

“Before the fight, he did an interview and he mapped out five fights,” Warren told White and Jordan. “That’s what he wants to do.

“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.”

Speaking after the fight, Fury himself admitted he did not know what the future held – despite having one fight left on his contract with Top Rank and ESPN.
