Frank Warren has admitted he wouldn’t be surprised if Tyson Fury announces his retirement tomorrow after his thrilling victory over 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.
After dropping Wilder in the third round, it was Fury who himself stepped off the canvas twice to defeat his American opponent and end their trilogy.
The next step for Fury remains to be seen as Anthony Joshua is locked in a rematch with Oleksandr Usyk to tie the other three world heavyweight title belts.
Provided Dillian Whyte can pass Otto Wallin on October 30 at 02 Arena, it is likely that the WBC will sanction a fight between the two Britons and force Fury to fight his first mandatory title defense.
Still, Warren, who helped organize the incredible comeback of the ‘Gypsy King’, insists the heavyweight champion will dictate exactly how his career unfolds – for as long as it lasts.
“Before the fight he did an interview and he planned 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. He will do what he wants and no one will tell him who he is going to fight.
“I’m telling you 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 want to. “
“If he does, he’s rich, he’s made a lot of money and he has to do what’s right for him.”
Speaking after the fight, Fury himself admitted he didn’t know what the future had in store for him – despite having one fight left on his contract with Top Rank and ESPN.
