Fury advises son against fight with Joshua

Tyson Fury’s father wants him to snub a heavyweight unification fight with Anthony Joshua and retire from the sport after being crowned WBC heavyweight champion of the world.

Fury beat Deontay Wilder with a brutal performance in Las Vegas on Saturday night to once again become a world title-holder.

The American’s corner threw in the towel in the seventh round with their man suffering from nasty cuts to his ear and mouth.

With a mandatory defence not due until next year, Fury could go toe-to-toe with Wilder for a third time due to a rematch clause inserted into the contract or seek a mouthwatering unification session against fellow Brit Joshua.

Focus on his family

But John Fury has advised his son to forget about stepping into the ring again and to hang up his gloves to focus on his family.

“I want my son to retire now, which is just my opinion. He has done enough; he has got no more to prove. He has proved he is a worthy champion for this country”. John Fury said.

Meanwhile, Deontay Wilder’s team has told Frank Warren they intend to call an immediate rematch between the Gypsy King and his rival.

Wilder has 30 days to make an official decision, but his co-manager Shelly Finkel called Warren to inform Team Fury of their current thinking.

The contract for the second fight included a rematch clause, which gave the loser the right to a third session.

Earlier, Tyson Fury stopped Wilder in a magnificent performance in their Las Vegas rematch, repeatedly flooring the Bronze Bomber before the towel was thrown in during the seventh round.
