Tyson Fury has cast doubt over his boxing future by suggesting he could retire after his knockout win over Deontay Wilder last weekend.
The Gypsy King retained his WBC heavyweight title by beating Wilder in the 11th-round of an all-time classic encounter on Saturday night, in which he was forced to pull himself off the canvas twice.
After knocking his bitter rival down in the third round, Fury appeared on the verge of defeat when he was floored twice in the fourth.
Yet from the fifth onwards he regained control of the contest, battering a brave Wilder from pillar to post before landing the knockout blow in the 11th.
Fury must now defend his WBC strap against the winner of Dillian Whyte and Otto Wallin's October 30 clash, with a potential undisputed battle against Oleksandr Usyk or Anthony Joshua in store next summer.
However, the 33-year-old has hinted that he might not even stick around for the undisputed fight, instead suggesting that retirement could be on the cards.
