Tyson Fury won’t be retiring anytime soon according to co-promoter Bob Arum.

Following his emphatic 11th-round knockout win over Deontay Wilder earlier this month to defend his WBC heavyweight title, Fury hinted at potentially retiring.

“I’ve got one fight left on my contract with Top Rank and ESPN and we’ll see what that is,” Fury said. “But I’m not thinking about boxing right now. I don’t know if I need to fight any more. I don’t know what the future holds.”

Of course, it’s not the first time Fury has suggested calling it a day. However, that’s not the plan for now as per Top Rank Boxing promoter Arum.

The legendary promoter even revealed when he wanted Fury to return along with potential opponents (via Michael Benson).

Bob Arum has dismissed suggestions that Tyson Fury could now retire from boxing. He said he wants Fury to return around March in the UK and named Dillian Whyte and Joe Joyce as potential opponents.”

The most likely next opponent is WBC interim heavyweight champion Whyte who happens to be Fury’s mandatory challenger as of now.

With Anthony Joshua set to rematch Oleksandr Usyk, it only makes sense for Fury to remain active and fight someone he’s wanted to shut up for a while now in Whyte.

Who do you think wins in a Fury vs. Whyte matchup?
