John Fury, father of the crowned WBC champion, Tyson Fury has advised  his son not to fight the reining unified champion, Nigerian-British Anthony Joshua.

He made this statement after Tyson Fury defeated Deontay Wilder with a brutal performance in Las Vegas on Saturday night to once again become a world titleholder.

“I want my son to retire now,” John Fury told Good Morning Britain. “That is just my opinion. He has done enough, he has got no more to prove. He has proved he is a worthy champion for this country.

Deontay Wilder threw in the towel in the seventh round with their man suffering from nasty cuts to his ear and mouth.

With a mandatory defence not due until next year, Fury could go toe-to-toe with Wilder for a third time due to a rematch clause inserted into the contract or seek a mouthwatering unification bout against fellow Brit Joshua.

But John Fury has advised his son to forget about stepping into the ring again and to hang up his gloves to focus on his family.
