Tyson Fury has suggested he will retire after retaining his WBC heavyweight title and unbeaten record with a devastating sixth-round knockout of Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium.

Fury, who has now won 32 and drawn one of his 33 fights, brought down Whyte with a stunning right uppercut in front of 94,000 fans in the capital.

“I think it is,” said the 33-year-old when asked in the ring if he would fight again.

anger told BT sport: “I promised my lovely wife Paris that after the third fight with Deontay Wilder it would be time, and I meant it.

“Then I was offered to fight at Wembley and I felt like I owe it to the fans, every person in the UK, to come out here and fight.

“Now it’s all settled, I must be a man of my word. I think this is it, it could be the last curtain for the Gypsy King and what a way to go!”

That’s what Fury’s promoter, Frank Warren, said BT sport: “If it was the last fight, it will be the last fight. That’s his call, he’s the guy to get in the ring. If it’s his last fight, he’s gone so high.”

Fury passed challenger Whyte before flattening him and referee Mark Lyson waved the fight off with a second remaining in the sixth round.

However, the champion showed respect to Whyte afterwards, saying he believes the Brixton-based boxer will one day be a world champion.

He added: “Dillian Whyte is a warrior and I believe he will be world champion, but tonight he met a great of the sport, one of the greatest heavyweights of all time.

“There is no shame. He’s a tough savage. He is strong as a bull and has the heart of a lion.

“But he didn’t take on a mediocre heavyweight. He messed with the best man in the world.”

On the punch that knocked out Whyte, Fury added: “Lennox Lewis would have been proud of that.”
