Former undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson has urged both Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder to continue fighting.

Earlier this month, Fury and Wilder traded punches in one of the best heavyweight fights in the last few years.

Fury retained the WBC heavyweight title when overcame two knockdowns to knock Wilder out in the eleventh round at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Fury has yet to make an official decision regarding his boxing future, but there are some observers who wouldn't rule out a potential retirement. Others, like two division champion Ricky Hatton, believe Fury has nothing left to prove and should walk away from the sport.

Tyson, who Fury is named after, would like to see the British star, on the back of his recent performance, continue forward.

"Keep on winning brother, keep on winning," Tyson said to Reuters.

"He's the lineal champion. He's the man who beat the man. He is heavyweight boxing, period. He is, nobody else.

"Ask anybody except for [Oleksandr] Usyk, who is the heavyweight champion? And Usyk might even say it's Fury."

Fury's wife, Paris, expects her husband to continue fighting for at least a few more years.

Fury's next fight is slated to take place in March or April - and it may be a mandatory defense of his title against domestic rival Dillian Whyte.

And when it comes to Wilder, Tyson wants to see him recover from the recent loss and come back stronger.

"Keep fighting, make money, stack your money up, and call it a day," Tyson said.

During the trilogy fight with Fury, Wilder suffered an injury his right hand and underwent surgery. He is also expected to fight again in the first half of 2022.
