Tyson Fury’s dad, John, calls for his son to retire following Wilder victory
The heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury’s dad has asked his son to retire following his victory over Deontay Wilder and claims the Gypsy King.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain on Monday morning: John Fury, a former Heavyweight boxer says he will like his son to walk away from the sport now that he has achieved greatness as talk has already turned to a potential unification fight with Anthony Joshua, even though Wilder can trigger a trilogy fight.
The Fury Snr approved of his son to see the US president, after Donald Trump commented on the ‘great fight’, and said he would invite Fury and Wilder to the White House
‘I want my son to retire now. He’s done enough. It’s been an uphill battle for him.
‘It’s been an uphill battle for him. He’s done enough. I want him to pack it in now. ‘I think it’s in the back of his mind. He can’t do anymore. Enough is enough. He’s given all.’
‘I’ll be honest, I’m sat here today and I still keep pinching myself because where he was two years ago there was no hope, basically. ‘He was that low, he went that far back, I didn’t think he was ever going to get back.
‘But I just think myself there’s more to life than we see with the eye, there’s got to be, because he was in such a mess.
