Frank Warren has admitted that Tyson Fury could retire from boxing after his arranged fight with Oleksandr Usyk collapsed.
The fight between Fury and Usyk, which was supposed to take place on April 29th, fell through after a dispute over the purse split and Warren has said that Fury is not happy about the situation and could call time on his 15-year career in the sport.
“Tyson’s a bit p***ed,” said Warren to SecondsOut. “Because he’s been in training constantly, he’s got his trainer in, so it’s not a conversation because everything’s too raw at the moment, so we’ll work it out.
“He may retire, he will do whatever he wants to do.
