Tyson Fury has been told to consider retirement as ‘he has nothing left to prove’ after convincing victories over Deontay Wilder and Wladimir Klitschko.

 

The ‘Gypsy King’ knocked out Wilder in Las Vegas for the second time earlier this month to retain his WBC heavyweight title.

 

 

Fury, a two-time world champion, never lost his belts inside the ring and also boasts a dominant victory over Klitschko from 2015 to leave his legacy assured.

 

 

What remains next becomes a little murkier, with a proposed bout against Anthony Joshua falling off in the summer and a proposed bout against Dillian Whyte mooted.

 

 

Oleksandr Usyk currently holds the WBA, WBO and IBF world titles and an undisputed title fight with Fury would only be able to take place after the Ukrainian faces Joshua for a second time.

 

 

However, nutritionist George Lockhart believes the 33-year-old could retire right now if he so desired and be content with the body of work he has amassed inside the ring.

 

Lockhart, who is a leading nutritionist for several high-profile names in MMA and worked with Conor McGregor, was tasked with helping Fury shed stone after stone on his quest to regain the heavyweight titles.

 

And having seen his close friend and client achieve his goals, the former Marine would be content to see Fury ride off into the sunset with his family.

 

Lockhart, speaking to leading coffee retailer Coffee Friend, said: “If Tyson retires now I’d be happy as hell because he does not have anything left to prove – who has he got left to fight?

 

 

“AJ just got beat, Tyson just knocked out the most dangerous puncher. Usyk maybe. But the thing is: you then get drawn in.

 

 

“You beat Usyk but then there’s Dillian Whyte. And if he doesn’t fight Dillian, everyone is saying he’s ducking Dillian Whyte.

 

 

“It’s never-ending because nobody ever retires and has a situation where everyone agrees he was the best of the best and he’s not ducking anybody – there’s always someone else they want you to fight, the next hurdle.

 

 

“The thing is, Tyson has nothing left to prove, he is without doubt the best of his era – he beat Klitschko – the longest reigning champion; Wilder the – hardest puncher.

 

 

“It ain’t getting better than that. It’s very rare to see an undefeated heavyweight champion go out on top. So I hope Tyson does.”
