Boxing News at Five: Fury’s father wants the ‘Gypsy King’ to retire, Joshua vs. Pulev gets a date in June

IN the aftermath of his 2015 victory against Wladimir Klitschko in Dusseldorf, all the talk – serious or otherwise – was of Tyson Fury riding off into the sunset and retiring on a high.

His father, John, and his uncle, Peter, both said the mission had been accomplished and wouldn’t be against Tyson calling it quits with three of the four world heavyweight titles in his possession. Tyson, too, said he wasn’t sure if anything would be able to top that historic night in Germany.

Four and a half years on, the ‘Gypsy King’ has now stopped Deontay Wilder to become the WBC heavyweight champion and his father is once again calling for him to throw in the towel while on top.
