Boxing: Tyson Fury Urged To Retire


Tommy Fury has urged brother Tyson to follow through with his promise to retire after fighting Dillian Whyte.

Fury returns to the UK for a homecoming five years in the making to defend his WBC crown against mandatory challenger Whyte.
He had vowed to wipe the floor at Wembley on April 23 before adding all four undisputed belts to his trophy shelve. But Fury, 33, quickly backtracked and claimed he will retire after fighting Whyte, 33, a plan his brother backs all the way.

Tommy, 22, told EsNEWS: “Yeah definitely 100 per cent, I would like to see Tyson retire after this one.

“He’s got nothing left to prove, he’s won every single professional belt there is.
“He beat the man who beat the man and he’s beat all the top men out there. “He’s really got nothing left to prove, so if he wants to walk away 100 per cent definitely.”
Tommy is eyeing a place on the pay-per-view undercard which would be his first fight since August.

He had been in line for a celebrity grudge match against YouTuber Jake Paul, 25, in December. But the 2019 Love Islander was forced to pull out after suffering a broken rib and bacterial chest infection.

Tommy has called to reschedule the fight and reckons a statement win on Tyson’s undercard will do the trick.

He said: “That fight I look to see at the end of the year. “My plan is to get a good win on this undercard. At the end of the day, Jake Paul knows where it’s at.”
