Tyson Fury’s wife Paris outlines ‘only reason’ star will come out of retirement
Paris Fury has revealed the only reason why her boxing champ husband Tyson might reconsider his retirement.
The Gypsy King wowed fans both at Wembley Stadium and watching from home as he produced an almighty uppercut to knock out Dillian Whyte on Saturday night. But a few minutes after the fight many were left disappointed by his suggestion that it would be his last professional bout.
Fury admitted it "could be the end" of his time in the sport and doubled down on that statement in his post-fight press conference. "I'm happy with my decisions. I'm gonna go home with my wife and my kids. I've fulfilled everything I ever wanted to fulfil," he told reporters.
"I'm going to retire as only the second heavyweight champion in history after Rocky Marciano to retire undefeated. All roads led to the Gypsy King. And I was unbeatable at this game."
His wife Paris will no doubt be pleased with that decision, having spoken in the past of her desire to see her husband call it a day. But she admits there is at least one circumstance which would most likely convince Tyson to step back into the ring one last time.
"He has nothing left to prove – that's the thing," she told BT Sport. "If he anything left to do I would say Tyson, you do it. Unless he really wants to box on – for fame or money or whatever – he doesn't need that. Tyson is the most famous man on the planet tonight.
Should Tyson Fury retire undefeated now or wait for a unification bout? Have your say in the comments section.
"We're very blessed and lucky to not need anymore money – I am happy with what we are and what we have. I know in my heart that the only reason Tyson would come back is for a unification fight and that would be the only reason. He has nothing left to prove."
It leaves the door open for fans to finally witness a bout between Fury and either Anthony Joshua or Oleksandr Usyk, with the winner taking every belt in the heavyweight division. Their rematch will take place in the summer, after the Ukrainian took AJ's titles from him last September.
A money-spinning meeting with Joshua was what Fury had wanted in the first place, but that deal was thwarted by Usyk's victory in London. Having waited and seen off his mandatory challenger with relative ease in the interim, the Gypsy King may yet box again if the sport's greatest prize comes within reach.
