    I expect Fury will fight Whyte next (if Whyte beats Wallin)..
    Usyk is the most worthy challenger to Fury though, that's undeniable.

    Whyte's a decent fight. Whyte's inflated reputation and big mouth will make it a big money fight too, and Whyte comes to fight.
    So is Wallin a good fight for Fury, if Wallin beats Whyte. But unfortunately, if Wallin wins he will be made to fight Whyte again.

    Need to beat one of the better HWs in the divison which he hasnt done since Wlad over 5 years ago.

    Fight whyte - the winner fights the winner of the AJ vs Usyk to establish who is the best in era.

    Sounds like Fury going to duck Whyte and fight another padded record guy like Schwarz, Wilder and Wallin.

    John Fury said he should retire if he doesn't get Usyk fight.

    Fury himself said he might retire.

    Fury's MO since coming out of retirement has been fighting padded record guys and turning down offers to fight AJ and Whyte.

    The Usyk and AJ fights are what everybody wants to see.

    IMHO they are the only two around that pose a significant threat to him.

    Whyte could KO him with a left hook. Plus he is strong with long arms too so he can't really be rag dolled or tied up like Wilder could be.

    Whyte is still a danger man and he is very determined and still has a lot of self-belief.

    That's why John Fury wants to avoid him and go for a smaller Usyk who is not as strong or as powerful and can also be pushed back.

    Also, if Joshua does not regain his confidence back he is also a pretty easy fight too.

    He has every right to retire.
    You're clearly not even a fan, so why would you care if he retires?

    I don't think he will retire. But he can if he likes, same with any boxer. They take the punches, not us.

    Fighting Wilder for the WBC title made far more sense than fighting Whyte, who is Chisora-level and has no belt.
    Whyte was desperate to fight Wilder too, so what's wrong with that?

    If he fights the winner of Uysk vs Joshua I’ll be fine with him retiring.

    I doubt it. He still has 1 fight left on his ESPN deal for starters. But also I think without boxing Fury lacks a focus in his life and that's when his mental health suffers and he goes off the rails with the booze and partying. Unless he's found another passion to replace boxing I don't see him going anywhere soon.

    He obviously wants the Usyk fight next. Warren has also been saying this. He is only saying this to try and get Whyte and AJ to stand aside so that he can get that fight and then give them the opportunity to fight him after.

    Let's be real, he has one more fight on his current deal and once that is complete (and if he beats Usyk) he would have some serious money go his way to fight 1-3 times more. I don't see him breaking that deal nor turning down the money on offer after as he is still relatively young, hasn't taken much punishment yet and he is better than the other three even if they would be tricky for him. Additionally, on his last main interview with The Telegraph, he admitted that post boxing he doesn't feel like he has much in his life to fill that void. So, I cannot see him walking away from all the money and placing himself into a corner where he leaves his days empty.

    This is all a negotiating tactic and to some extent a good one as he has already semi-retired so people may buy it slightly.

    Duck Whyte LOL.. ffs shut up :lol:.. Whyte got sparked by a geriatric Povetkin not long ago & lost* against an old Chisora first time round .. How many times have we seen whyte go life and death and get nearly knocked out lately in recent fights (Parker, Rivas) I mean seriously… I'm not even convinced he beats Wallin.. & he looked like guff against a **** Wach too .. he's a good HW but he's a level below fury and anyone who thinks otherwise is kidding themselves. Fury would slaughter him akin to how he did Chisora. The Wilder from the other night would knock him the **** out too

    Why people keep taking what Fury says seriously I don't know there are probably hundreds of videos out there of him saying one thing one day and the complete opposite the next day :lol:
