Tyson Fury handed 45-day medical suspension following Deontay Wilder fight

Tyson Fury has been handed a medical suspension of 45-days after victory over Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

The 33-year-old fighter was put on the canvas twice during the fight but recovered sufficiently to put his opponent away by knockout in the 11th round.

And the Nevada State Athletic Commission have subsequently suspended him until April 8- which means he'll be unable box again before that date- unless he is cleared by a doctor beforehand.

Wilder has been handed a six-month suspension by the same commission.

Speaking to Sky Sports recently former boxer Carl Froch said he wouldn't be surprised if Tyson was to call it a day as he's not sure there's enough competition out there to trouble the man who goes by the nickname of 'The Gypsy King'.

He said: "I wouldn't be surprised if he retired.

"Depending upon how much he loves the sport, and how much he wants to go in there and do it all again, I wouldn't be surprised if Fury says: 'I have done my bit and now I am finished'.

"People want to see AJ rectify his bad performance against Usyk, or maybe even see Usyk against Fury.

"As a boxing fan, I want to see Usyk take on Fury.

"I don't think he can do it - I think Fury is too big, too clever for him."
