Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder: Brit hints at retirement should he lose

- Tyson Fury says he has what it takes to hand Deontay Wilder his first career defeat

- The Gypsy King, however, claims if he does not win the fight, he may hang his boxing gloves

- Fury also aims a subtle jibe at Bronze Bomber's CV, saying his boxing record is extremely paddled

Tyson Fury claims he will draw the curtain down on his illustrious boxing career should he lose to his heavyweight showdown to WBC champion Deontay Wilder.

The Brit will face Bronze Bomber in a much anticipated heavyweight showdown officially scheduled for February 22, 2020, in Las Vegas at the iconic MGM Grand Garden Arena in the United States.

With less than two days to the showdown, the Gypsy King vowed to beat Bonze Bomber, adding that the fight is a test of his legacy in the game.

He also added that should he fail to win the fight, he will call it to quit on his unbeaten career and return to his Morecambe home.

“I’m not putting pressure on myself, but if I cannot beat Deontay Wilder then I’m no good.

“I won’t go down as a great or a champion. I will go back to Morecambe and never sniff boxing again in my life,'' Fury said.

The Gypsy King also berated Wilder's CV, saying his 42-0-1 record is paddled because he did not fight a competitive heavyweight fighter.

Wilder and Fury had their first fight in December 2018 and it resulted into a controversial split, with both sides emerging winners in grand style.

The American heavyweight champ had landed a brutal knockout-bound punch on Tyson Fury but the Brit got his moves back to give Wilder some chases inside the ring.

Wilder later went to defend his WBC title against Cuban fighter Luiz Ortiz in December- his tenth title-defence fight he unsurprisingly won through a knockout.
