With a lot of time between now and a potential February rematch with Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury is looking for things to do.
First up is his pro wrestling debut on October 31st against Braun Strowman at the WWE’s Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia.
Fury, who has appeared on the WWE’s RAW and Smackdown programs leading up to the match, teased in an interview with Sky Sports that he is looking to be a three-sport athlete.
”I’ve got something big coming up after this, even bigger than this,” Fury said of the event on Thursday.
“We might see Tyson Fury have his MMA debut this year too. It’s different, but like I say, Tyson Fury taking over.”

“Yeah, I’ve been speaking to Conor [McGregor] about it, and he’s willing to train me,” Fury continued. “And it’s gonna be good. I come from a long line of bare-knuckle boxing champions. Getting hurt, getting bloody. You saw my last fight, blood everywhere! Nothing new to me. All a part of my heritage and upbringing. So, I’d love to get in there and smash someone up.”
”[McGregor] just said, any time you’re ready, when you get the time, let’s go,” he concluded. “Come over to Dublin, and we’ll start training. So, can’t wait! Gonna take him up on the offer. Who knows, who knows? We might be on a double header. The Gypsy King and Conor McGregor. It even rhymes, doesn’t it? Double header, Gypsy King and Conor McGregor!”
