Tyson Fury is set for an extended break from boxing following his victory against Deontay Wilder
Tyson Fury’s promoter Frank Warren has stated that the Gypsy King is ‘not interested’ in boxing following his victory over Deontay Wilder.
The Manchester fighter secured a seventh-round knockout triumph against Wilder in Las Vegas, defeating the Bronze Bomber for the second fight in a row.
The victory brought an end to a lengthy period building up to the fight, which was also impacted by significant delays in the process.
Following Fury’s win, plenty of discussion has orientated around who Fury will face-off against next – with Dillian Whyte and Oleksandr Usyk both potentially on the cards.
However, Warren has made it clear that Fury is in no rush to return to the ring and is focused on spending time with his family.
“At the moment, he is not interested. He has been in camp for 20 months, an unfortunate break because his new-born baby daughter was taken into intensive care on two occasions which interrupted his training and, of course, the COVID,” he told TalkSport.
“Other than that, he has been training and training and training and now it’s quality time with his family.
“We’ve got plenty of time to talk about fights moving forward, so in a couple of weeks’ time, when he is ready, we can pick up the phone when he is ready and we can have a chat.”
Fury is unlikely to return to the ring before the end of the calendar year, with the earliest date for his next bout likely to be in spring.
His opponent may be Whyte, with the WBC expected to order Fury to fight against his fellow Brit if he retains his position as the WBC interim champion.
