Carl Froch believes Tyson Fury may be considering retirement as there is ‘nothing left for him to do’ in boxing, despite naming three huge fights that could be next for the Gypsy King.

Fury (31-0-1) triumphed over Deontay Wilder on Saturday night, their third fight which leaves the Brit with two wins and a draw from his trilogy with the Bronze Bomber.

The memorable victory by 11th round knockout puts Fury at the top of the heavyweight tree, although Oleksandr Usyk can also lay claim to that position after beating Anthony Joshua for the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO titles last month.

Froch would like to see Fury take on either Usyk or AJ, but also feels the Gypsy King could choose to head into retirement due to a lack of options.

‘I’d like to see him take on AJ. I’d like to see him take on Usyk to see how that fight would go,’ Froch wrote in his Sky Sports column.

‘There is nothing left for him to do. I wouldn’t be surprised if he retired.

‘Depending upon how much he loves the sport, and how much he wants to go in there and do it all again, I wouldn’t be surprised if Fury says: “I have done my bit and now I am finished”.’

Not only does Fury have possible clashes with Joshua and Usyk available to him in the future, he also has a big all-British bout with Dillian Whyte as an option for his next outing.

The Body Snatcher is the number one contender for Fury’s WBC title and the likeliest next opponent for the champion, who should fight in the UK for the first time since 2018.

Froch would also like to see a clash between the two behemoths, another fine option rather than retirement.

‘Let’s not forget about Dillian Whyte, a top fighter who has been tapping on the door for that WBC title for many years,’ continued the…
