Boxing News: Tyson Fury has been ‘given time’ to consider retirement, as the WBC will not begin looking for a new challenger until the British star has made his decision.

After defending his world belts with a sixth-round stoppage victory over Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium last month, the 33-year-old two-time world heavyweight champion has frequently stated that he will retire from boxing.

WBC president Mauricio Sulaimán told Sky Sports that he met with Fury this week while on vacation and that the organisation will be behind him “no matter what he decides.”

“I just received a very beautiful video from Tyson with his father and his family while on vacation,” he said. “We spoke and we’re going to be speaking in the near future.

“We will give him the time he needs.”

Sulaimán added: “I do not like to speculate. I would rather wait to give him his due time for his holiday.
