Fury confirms retirement plans after stopping Whyte

World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury had an impromptu reunion with coach Steve Egan just weeks after declaring he would never box again.

Fury has insisted on multiple occasions over the past month that he would be retiring after knocking out Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium in his latest title defence. But with a decision yet to be made on whether or not he will surrender his WBC belt, many have speculated he will make a comeback, particularly should Anthony Joshua beat Oleksandr Usyk in their rematch this summer.

Even though he has claimed to be happily retired from the sport, Fury has remained in fighting shape and stays fit with frequent workouts with he updates fans about on social media. And his latest run in the sun saw him reunite with his first ever trainer Steve Egan in Morecambe.

Fury and Egan ran four miles with pal Matt Catterall on the beach Morecambe during a workout, with the heavyweight champion sharing videos of the trio before and after. He tagged the pair, but didn’t mention anything to do with boxing.

“Right, Steve thought I looked lonely yesterday training on my own,” Fury joked in his first post. “So he drove from Manchester to Morecambe, come on Steve! Get up! Cheers mate, appreciate it.” He shared another video after the run with Egan and Catterall, adding: “Lovely run in the bay with blue skies, lovely four miles, Steve, Matty, good little run wasn’t it? Proper weather, come on the boys!”

It comes after Eddie Hearn admitted he is hoping to make a fight between Fury and Anthony Joshua finally happen this December for the undisputed heavyweight title. Joshua faces Usyk for the rest of the heavyweight belts this summer, and should he win there would be mega money on the table for Fury to take him on for all the gold.

Speaking to fans on an Instagram Live stream, Matchroom Boxing boss Hearn declared that he would like to make the long-awaited Fury and Joshua fight this year, should his man win his belts back. “I think you’ll see Joshua-Fury whatever happens, in all honesty,” Hearn said. “But hopefully we can see it for the undisputed world heavyweight championship in December.”

And Fury’s own promoter Bob Arum has admitted that even he is unsure if the Manchester native would be able to resist one more fight if Joshua became available as a legitimate opponent. The pair were inches away from securing a major fight last summer, but a legal issue forced the unbeaten Brit to instead face Deontay Wilder in a trilogy.

“I think Tyson Fury is going to wait to see how the Anthony Joshua fight comes out with Oleksandr Usyk, then make a determination whether he wants to continue,” he told Fight Hype. “Other than fighting the winner of Usyk vs Joshua, there’s nothing really of interest to Fury.”
