Drew McIntyre ‘Will Not Shut Up’ About Getting Tyson Fury Fight Until It Happens
Francis Ngannou isn’t the only non-boxer looking to take on Tyson Fury.
WWE superstar Drew McIntyre and Fury have been wanting to set up a match for a while, since around 2020. McIntyre said in a recent interview with Alistair McGeorge of Metro that he still has a good feeling it’ll happen.

“I’ve not stopped talking about it [the match with Fury], I won’t stop talking about it until it happens,” McIntyre said.
“I’ll be watching [Fury’s] fight closely! I wish I could be there to antagonise him. After the fact – I’m not gonna distract him from the fight. But the second he wins – because I do believe in him, he is that good – I would love to be there right in the front row to tell him, ‘Right, let’s make this thing happen!’”
Fury is scheduled to make a mandatory defense against interim heavyweight champion Dillian Whyte on April 23. He is coming off two successful title defenses against top contender Deontay Wilder.
McIntyre is set to face Happy Corbin at Wrestlemania 38 on April 2. Prior to that, he made a surprise return at the Royal Rumble match and faced Madcap Moss at Elimination Chamber in Saudi Arabia.
“The only way we’re gonna make this thing happen is with McIntyre and Fury. I will not shut up about it until he frickin’ happens. Trust me, nobody is waiting for it more than me!” McIntyre added.
It was recently reported that the WWE will hold a Premium Live Event in the United Kingdom in September, which could be a perfect time and place for the matchup.
