Tyson Fury’s father, John Fury, is ready to share the ring with Mike Tyson, who has been preparing Francis Ngannou for an upcoming confrontation with his son.
“Mike Tyson is the man I named my son after,” Fury Sr. said at a press conference in Riyadh. “But the man who raised him, John Fury, fears no one on this Earth but God Almighty.”
“I’m here, and I’m ready to fight any man who wants to fight John Fury. Mike Tyson, what do you think about this? The world is about to see what’s going to happen to your charge – he’s going to get his head blown off and stopped. If I’m wrong, you and I can fight right after that. Whatever the outcome, you and I will fight!”
“Iron Mike” responded by making it clear that he wasn’t too interested in the proposal.
“He’s been after me for 40 years,” Tyson said.
Recall that the ten-round boxing match between Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou will be held on October 28 in the capital of Saudi Arabia, and in December the “Gypsy King” has a bout scheduled with Ukrainian Alexander Usik, which will determine the absolute world champion in heavyweight boxing.
