The 33-year-old champ — who’s been teasing his retirement leading up to Saturday’s event — seemingly declared that he was content with his career and ready to hang up the gloves after the win … saying, “I think this is it. This could be the end for the Gypsy King. “

Despite retirement talk Fury brought Ngannou to the ring during his celebration… and the two teased an epic Heavyweight bout between the worst of both combat sports — with Francis suggesting a fight using MMA gloves in a boxing ring.

There are a couple challenges — first, Ngannou is dealing with a leg injury and will need months to get back to 100% … and second, he’s also in the midst of a contract dispute with the UFC. If he’s under contract, he will need Dana White‘s stamp of approval before taking a fight with Fury.

One thing’s for sure — Fury looked good as ever against Whyte … and if he doesn’t fight Ngannou, there’s a long list of boxing superstars who would want to step in the ring with him … including, Alexander Usyk, who has all the other heavyweight championship belts … and Anthony Joshua, a matchup boxing fans have been wanting for years.
