Tyson Fury certainly sounded like a fighter who's ready to ride off into the sunset following his win over Dillian Whyte on Saturday at Wembley Stadium.

"I've done everything asked of me," Fury said. "I've done more promotion, more interviews than anybody, and I go above and beyond with all these shows I fight on, so I definitely deserve to be able to make a choice where I think it benefits me most."

Whyte, meanwhile, is hopeful that Fury has at least one more fight left in him. That's because he wants a rematch.

During an interview with Sky Sports, Whyte said Fury used an "illegal move" over the weekend. Whyte claims Fury shoved him to the mat after he took an uppercut to the chin.

"I was buzzed, but obviously I was trying to regather my senses and he proper full-on pushed me and I fell over and hit my head on the canvas, which is illegal," Whyte said. "This isn't wrestling, this is boxing. I should have been allowed extra time to recover and then carried on fighting."

Whyte got back up on his feet, but then immediately stumbled in front of the referee.

Boxing fans may want to see a rematch between Fury and Whyte. Of course, that's if Fury decides to hold off on retirement.
