TYSON FURY reckons Anthony Joshua should 'retire' if he loses his make or break rematch with Oleksandr Usyk.
Ukrainian southpaw Usyk ended Joshua's second reign as unified heavyweight champion with a classy performance at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last month.
But AJ will have the chance to reclaim the belts in a do-or-die rematch early next year, which fellow Brit Fury believes he can ill-afford to lose.
The WBC heavyweight champ said: "I think if he doesn’t beat Usyk in his rematch I think he’s finished, retire, done.
"He needs to win that fight, no matter how he does it."
Usyk's Tottenham masterclass has potentially put the final nail in the coffin of the long-awaited Battle of Britain between Joshua and Fury.
But the Gypsy King insists he's not bothered about the biggest payday of his career going up in smoke.
The 33-year-old told Boxing Social: " [It's] not really frustrating to be honest.

"A lot of money, but I’ve already got a lot of money so a few more zeros on my bank balance ain’t going to make or break me, to be fair.
"It doesn’t really mean a lot. The money side of it was one thing, but it didn’t happen, you can never count your eggs before they hatch.
"That’s it. There’s not much to say about the matter. He lost the fight, he lost to a better man.
"When one door closes another one will open, there will always be someone to beat up on, I suppose."
Fan favourite Fury is just days away from a Las Vegas trilogy fight with rival Deontay Wilder.
And the Wythenshawe warrior plans to close the book on his rivalry with the American in brutal fashion.
After making his grand arrival in Vegas on Tuesday night, Fury vowed: "I am going to knock him out, quick time.
"I think he's a real piece of s***, a real piece of garbage.
"For that I might do it slow, I might take my beating him up and make him quit. I might force him to say, 'No mas.'"
