The British fighter could also hang up the gloves
Tyson Fury will appreciate the next step in his career very well, having confirmed his supremacy in the heavyweight category today with a dramatic demonstration against Deontay Wilder last Saturday in Las Vegas, and according to one of his promoters, That could range from unifying the titles to making the mandatory defense or retiring.
Frank Warren, who in partnership with Bob Arum promote the career of the “Gipsy King”, told the English media Mirror that they would love to face Oleksandr Usyk to leave once and for all a single champion in the category. In fact, the World Boxing Council guaranteed them 30 days to be able to reach an agreement for that fight, or failing that, then they would have to face Dillian Whyte, interim champion of the division.
“Right now for Usyk, it’s no secret that he has a rematch clause with Anthony Joshua,” Warren said. “But if Anthony Joshua wants to step aside, I’m sure we could easily have that fight,” added the Queensberry Promotions top man about what the future of boxing holds for the British monarch.
“Will (Joshua) step aside? I doubt it, so we don’t know. From our perspective, we would love to, but if we can’t and Tyson wants to continue boxing, then he will have to defend his championship, ”shared Warren, who celebrated with Arum the success of his fighter despite visiting the mat twice in a dramatic fourth round.
Finally, he did not rule out the idea of retirement, and it is that at the end of the day, the most important thing is the fighter. “If he does not want to continue boxing, it is up to him, whatever he decides, he is the person who gets into the ring, so it is completely up to him,” said Warren in the talk with the “Mirror.”
