Anthony Joshua or Oleksandr Usyk can lure Tyson Fury out of retirement for unification fight, reveals wife Paris

, Anthony Joshua or Oleksandr Usyk can lure Tyson Fury out of retirement for unification fight, reveals wife Paris

PARIS FURY believes husband Tyson will only end his retirement for a unification fight.

Oleksandr Usyk, who holds the other four world heavyweight belts, is set to defend his titles against Anthony Joshua in their rematch later this year.

Paris celebrated with Tyson Fury in the ring after his win over Dillian Whyte

The winner of that contest could then try to fight Fury to unify the division for the first time since 1999 when Lennox Lewis managed the feat.

And Paris thinks that could lure Fury back into the ring one last time, despite the Gypsy King confirming he would quit after defeating Dillian Whyte.

Paris told BT Sport: “I know in my heart the only reason Tyson would come back is for a unification fight.

“That would be the only reason because there’s nothing left for him.”

As Fury reiterated his desire to retire in the ring after defeating Dillian Whyte Paris appeared to mouth “no chance”, suggesting she does not believe it will be the end.

She is not the only one who thinks that, either, with Fury’s US promoter Bob Arum saying he “definitely won’t retire”.

Fury’s father John also believes his son is on a wind-up while Lewis also thinks Fury will want a shot at becoming undisputed champion.

But Paris would be happy if Fury never stepped foot in the ring again, revealing the build-up to his fights are a horrible experience for her.

She also backed up her husband’s claims that he is the best in the world and has achieved all there is to do in the sport.

She told talkSPORT: “The world has seen him do enough. He’s the best and proved it again.

“I don’t enjoy this one bit, the celebratory bit is great but the whole build-up and fight is a horrible experience to be in.

“I’d rather he be home now. He’s got nothing else to prove in this whole world.”

If Fury does return to fight Joshua or Usyk the bout could take place at Old Trafford, with Manchester United open to the idea of staging the contest.

As a lifelong United fan the prospect of fighting at the Theatre of Dreams could also appeal to Fury and perhaps lure him out of retirement.
