Tyson Fury has 'HAD ENOUGH' of boxing and has 'one eye on retirement', claims ex-world champ Carl Froch | The Sun

CARL FROCH claimed Tyson Fury has "one eye on retirement" and has "had enough" of boxing.

The WBC champion recently vented his frustration at failing to land fights with Oleksandr Usyk or Anthony Joshua.

And Froch believes the fed up Fury – who has backtracked on several retirements in the past – is already thinking of hanging them up.

He told Betfred: “I think Tyson Fury has one eye on retirement. I think he’s had enough.

"He’s a big lad that’s got a bit of fat around him and everybody knows that he’s a bit out of shape in between fights.

"He then gets himself down to a reasonable weight and he really is a formidable force at heavyweight as he’s six foot nine, he’s big, he moves quick, he’s got light feet and I believe he can mix with any fighter, from any era.

Fury says Ngannou will make 50x MORE than he ever earned in UFC for their fight

"He’d have lasted in the 80’s and the 90’s against some of the best old school fighters such as Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield."

Fury, 34, saw talks to face Oleksandr Usyk this year collapse, which for the first time ever would have seen all four heavyweight belts at stake.

Now Usyk, 36, defends his unified WBA, IBF and WBO belts against Daniel Dubois, 25, on August 26 in Poland.

And Joshua, 33, returns in a rematch with Dillian Whyte, 35, on August 12 and has a Wilder super-fight in Saudi Arabia lined up afterwards.

So it has left Fury somewhat in the lurch and forced to turn his attention to Francis Ngannou, 36, with the pair set to announce an exhibition bout.

Froch has been critical of the heavyweight division's best failing to fight each other.

He fumed: "It’s frustrating and the boxing fans are getting bored of it.

"In mixed martial arts they all fight each other because of the way it’s structured. In football, every team plays each other.

"In boxing, you have Tyson Fury shouting all the odds and fights aren’t happening.

"I don’t even believe that Anthony Joshua is interested in fighting and he’s actually said that himself, he’s doing it for the money now.

"If £100 million isn’t enough, then I don’t know when he’s going to stop. It's a frustrating time to be a boxing fan. 

“People blame it on the promoters, blame it on the television networks, but if the fighters want to fight, then the fight can be made.”
