Promoter Frank Warren says he would like to see WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury make the most of the peak years of his career by fighting on.
Fury, who halted Dillian Whyte in six rounds at Wembley Stadium last month, has reiterated his intention to retire from professional boxing with a record of 32-0-1.
“I don’t feel personally that he [Fury] should retire,” Warren said. “I don’t think he’s even peaked. He’s not going to have mileage on the clock – he’s had one fight in two years.
“To come back two or three years later, he ain’t going to be at his peak. Whatever you do, do it when you’re at your best.”
WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman said he would be reaching out to Fury’s team this week regarding whether he intends to retire or not, but Warren says there is no conversation to be had at this point.
“There’s no relevance there. There’s no mandatory due, so what are you going to talk to him about?” Warren said.
“Why would they strip him? There’s no mandatory due. The only time you get stripped is if you don’t fulfil your mandatory. I can’t determine what he’s going to do.”
