Ricky Hatton has fired Tyson Fury’s claim that he is retiring from boxing, claiming that the gypsy king wants to fight Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk before leaving the sport.

Fury extended his unbeaten record with yet another dominant performance as he dominated Dillian Whyte before stopping him with a KO in the sixth round at Wembley on Saturday night.

The 33-year-old insists he has now withdrawn from boxing and will only take part in show matches, with a fight against UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou on his wish list.

But Hatton, who is close friends with Fury, believes the gypsy king still has an eye for two more fights before calling it a day.

“I do not think he will retire,” Hatton told Boxing Social after Fury’s win over Whyte.

‘I know he will fight Usyk, he will fight Joshua.

‘I think he’s going to retire, just saw Eddie [Hearn] and AJ pulls his fingers out.

‘He can retire and say,’ yes, I’m retiring now, ‘if Eddie and AJ think they’ve lost it, they might have a better chance of getting it on.

‘I think Tyson is a fighting man, he just loves to fight, right?

‘I think Tyson will be on his couch in five years and think,’ I want to give it another chance ‘. It’s Tyson, right?

‘The reason we went into this fight is to try to be the best.

‘Tyson is the best, Usyk is number two and AJ is right behind, you want to fight the best, Tyson is the best, you do not want to retire without fighting the best, do you? I think they want it on. ‘
