Tyson Fury will retire within the next few years and bring an end to his boxing career, his wife Paris Fury has suggested.

Fury had previously retired but made a remarkable return to the sport with a marquee showdown with Deontay Wilder, the first of which ended as a controversial draw, before he inflicted a first career defeat upon the American in the second meeting.

That saw Fury clinch the WBC heavyweight belt, which he retained earlier this month with a second victory over Wilder in the pair's trilogy bout.

Fury will likely have to defend his belt on at least one occasion before a potential unification showdown with Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk but Paris Fury has suggested 2023 could be his retirement year.

“I think for himself, I think he’ll probably do it for a few more years. He’s 33 now – I think maybe until he’s 35," she told talkSPORT.

"I know Wladimir [Klitschko] and other men have gone on to being like 40, but do you keep going until you lose? I don’t know, I wouldn’t like to see that for Tyson. I wouldn’t like him to keep going and there’s always gonna be someone come up who’s younger and fresher if you are over the hill, too far gone.

“I just think maybe another two or three years and then Tyson should definitely hang up his gloves.”

Fury himself has admitted he only has a few fights left in the tank and, speaking earlier this year, outlined his plans for the future.

"Then I’ll go out, in my last fifth fight, that’ll be about two years and I’ll fight Derek Chisora.

"That’s five fights and then I’ll take two years out the ring just go absolutely nuts again Frank and I’ll come back at 37 and I’ll wipe the floor up with whoever's next because it’ll take two years to build someone up."
