Tyson Fury laid out his five-fight plan before knocking out Deontay Wilder this past weekend and his co-promoter Frank Warren has now discussed his next possible moves going forward
Tyson Fury ‘s co-promoter Frank Warren has discussed potential opponents for the Gypsy King’s next fight and alluded to the possibility of him retiring from boxing.
Fury defended his WBC heavyweight title for the first time this past weekend, knocking out Deontay Wilder in their third and likely final fight.
The Brit survived two knockdowns in the fourth round to stop Wilder in the 11th, putting a definitive end to their rivalry.
Fury outlined his five-fight plan before facing Wilder, including facing the likes of Anthony Joshua and Derek Chisora before retiring from the ring.
And Warren discussed the possibility of Joshua stepping aside for his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk to let Fury face the Ukrainian.
He told talkSPORT : “Usyk at the moment, it’s no secret, he’s got a rematch clause with AJ. So if AJ wants to step aside then I’m quite sure we could easily make that fight.
“So will he step aside? I doubt it. Or maybe he will, I don’t know. But from our perspective, yeah we’d love to do that. If we can’t and Tyson wants to continue boxing, then he’ll have to defend his title.
“If he doesn’t want to continue boxing then so be it, whatever he chooses to do. He’s the guy getting in the ring, that’s up to him.”
Fury’s next fight will likely be against WBC mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte in December, granted the Brit gets past Otto Wallin in their fight later this month.
Matchroom Boxing’s Eddie Hearn said Fury vs Whyte would be a “huge event” and he’d like to see it take place in the UK, given Fury’s last five fights have all taken place in the US.
He told iFL TV : “If Dillian gets the job done at the O2, then we get a massive fight between two Brits for the WBC and Ring magazine titles.

“I don’t see why Tyson wouldn’t want to fight Dillian Whyte. It’s a huge payday and massive event.”
And Warren doesn’t have any doubts Fury will get past Whyte, who was also one of the names on Fury’s bucket list of opponents.
He continued: “He did lay his plan out if you remember before the fight. He wants five more fights – which will be four now – then he’ll decide what he wants to do.
“One he talks about was Dillian Whyte. For me, I think he’s got the beating of Dillian Whyte. But if we’ve got to do the fight and the WBC order it, then it’s up to him whether he wants to fight him.”
