Via Allan Fox: Otto Wallin expressed doubt that Tyson Fury will retire without fighting rematch winner Anthony Joshua – Oleksandr Usyk because he will have a chance to become undisputed.
If Fury decides to walk away, it will send boxing fans the message that he doesn’t like the chance of beating winner Joshua vs. Usik 2.
Did Deontay Wilder take away Fury’s ambition?
Sure, Fury took more punishment than most people could imagine in his three fights with Deontay Wilder, getting cold-hits and being knocked down four times.
After everything Fury has been through before Deontay 6’7 ″, he probably won’t like the idea of facing Joshua 6’6 , who is in some ways more deadly than the ‘Bronze Bomber’ .
Fury knows that Joshua is too big and fast enough to reach his glass chin, and if he makes contact, he could finish the job Deontay started.
Fury won’t leave
Otto Wallin told iFL TV of Fury: “I’m having a hard time seeing him retire. “If he can get some time off right now, enjoy his family and be with his kids.
“After we watch the Joshua-Usyk rematch, if he can have a winner, I really had a hard time seeing him retire. If he can get the winner there and unify all the belts, how can you retire? ‘ said Wallin.
Surprisingly, Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) appeared to have been serious about hanging up his gloves after his sixth knockout win over Dillian Whyte last Saturday night in London, England.
Fury says he’s done enough with his career to feel satisfied with what he’s achieved, enough for him to call it a day.
“Yeah, sure,” Wallin said when asked if he wanted to continue fighting Whyte. “Some UK fans like me. I’ve got a pretty cool name since I fought Fury. I would love to come back and fight Dillian Whyte here.
“Dillian, I feel like he’s not fast enough with his arms or legs to get close to Fury,” Wallin said.
Tommy Fury says Tyson should retire
“Yes, it was unbelievable, everything we wanted,” Tommy Fury said iFL TV in Tyson Fury’s sixth-round KO reaction to Dillian Whyte last Saturday night. “I predicted this fight would not be six innings, and he took him out of there.
“Every shot he threw in the fight, he was doing in the camp, and it all came together in the fight the way we know it,” continued Tommy. “I predicted everything Dillian Whyte would come and do.
“I think he should because he has nothing left to prove. He won every single belt, and he beat everyone. It’s an uncompromising sport, isn’t it? So leave your job, enjoy your wife and kids, and that’s it,” Tommy said of Fury.
