Heavyweight Boxing champion, Tyson Fury’s ,wife begged him to quit boxing after his mega-fight victory over Anthony Joshua his final bout.
Fury who is currently holding the WBC and lineal titles, while Joshua has the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO titles.
Paris Fury, who also the mother of Fury’s five kids says she and her husband have spoken about the risks involved in boxing, and she wishes he retires undefeated after beating Joshua than continue in the sport in search of more fame and money to the detriment of his health.
Speaking in an interview with the Daily Mirror, Paris said, “I would like him to beat Anthony Joshua and then stop.
“He is in the ring with supreme boxers and it is a dangerous sport. We both know the risks. ”
“It cannot last forever, it cannot remain undefeated forever. I would not want to see him go on too long and get hurt.
“I wouldn’t want him to lose his record for money or celebrity hunting. He doesn’t need it.
“He has already cemented his name in the history books.
To be considered alongside the greats, Fury must unify the division by fighting Joshua. With Fury the last of the ‘big three’ left undefeated – after Joshua was beaten by Andy Ruiz in 2019 – he is the favourite to come out on top.
Fury could meet Joshua at the end of the year if Joshua beats Kubrat Pulev this June and if Fury beats Wilder in a rematch this July, as both fighters aim to decide who should be crowned the king of heavyweight boxing.
At moment, Fury’s boxing record so far includes 30 wins and one draw, a controversial judges’ decision in his first fight with Wilder while Joshua’s record includes 23 wins and one loss, a shock defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr. that he revenged in a rematch in December.
