Tyson Fury's future could become clearer this week as the WBC seek a decision on whether the two-time world heavyweight champion will follow through with plans to retire from the sport.

The 33-year-old has repeatedly insisted he will be walking away from boxing after defending his world titles with a sixth-round stoppage victory over Dillian Whyte in front of 94,000 people at Wembley Stadium last month.

Fury displayed little interest in a potential unification bout against the winner of Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk's summer rematch, instead turning his attention to a WWE return later this year followed by a possible 'hybrid' clash with UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou in 2023.

"The WBC will be communicating with Tyson Fury and his promoters about his future plans in the coming week," WBC president Mauricio Sulaimán told Sky Sports.

"We are ready to support him on whatever he decides. If he decides to retire the WBC will fully support him.

"It is our dream to see fighters retire with such greatness. Undefeated champion, financially protected with a loving family and a great future outside the ring .

"I am very happy and satisfied if this is his final decision and will fully support him and will be close to him for the rest of his life."
