Tyson Fury has just vanquished Deontay Wilder to close off a heated rivalry and retain his status as the WBC heavyweight titlist. He should ideally go for some rest and then return to the gym. However, ‘The Gypsy King’ has already regained momentum and is back in the flow of action. Apart from training his brother Tommy Fury for a fight against Jake Paul, Tyson Fury also has his own plans on board.

The WBC champion can either aim at a unification fight or choose to defend his title against a mandatory contender. Thus, Fury might have a fight or two left before he finally hangs his gloves. ‘The Gypsy King’ was spotted training with Jorge Capetillo in an alluring clip. It came after Andy Lee teased his cousin’s chances of facing Dillian Whyte in an interview with talkSPORT.

Andy Lee recently expressed views on several factors surrounding Tyson Fury’s boxing career. He sees heavyweight legend to be at the end of his career, which is still far from being over.

Recalling a chat with the WBC champion, Lee said, “I said, ‘Do you retire?’ He said, ‘I’m thinking that way.’ And then he said, ‘On the other hand, what else am I going to do with my life?’ He likes the Dillian Whyte fight. That’s what he’s talking about to me, so I can see that being next.”

WBC Interim heavyweight champion Dillian Whyte was set to face Otto Wallin. However, he walked away because of a bicep injury. Once he recovers, he can come straight for the world championship.

Tyson Fury can have bigger fights ahead

Although Fury vs Joshua would have been the biggest matchup of all, the current scenario doesn’t provide a lifeline to the fight. But Dillian Whyte also comes from the UK and him against Tyson Fury can be a massive All-English fight.

Whyte has lost only twice as a professional and has avenged one of those defeats in an immediate re-match. He clearly has the potential to challenge Fury.

While Tyson Fury still seems way greater than ‘The Body Snatcher’, it’s hard to predict anything in heavyweight boxing as one punch is what it takes to snatch a win.
