Fury, 33, reiterated afterwards that he would be quitting boxing after the mega £26million-plus payday.

But the legendary Lewis said: “Fury’s at the top of the game, the best heavyweight in the world. Nothing’s stopping him.

“He’s gonna take some time and rest and come back to us.

“I would understand [if he retires] but I hope he comes back. I doubt [he’ll retire], I think he’ll be back in the ring.

“I believe Fury’s going to want to go for undisputed.”

Lewis added: “He’s definitely up there in the scope of history, no question.

“He’s undefeated, great fighter, most of his fights are historic. It’s not easy to box a 6ft 9in man who fights like that.

“He can make you miss, very elusive in there.

“I was concerned the referee was going to stop the fight and disqualify someone.

“But the ref did an excellent job, sorted it out and it worked.”
