“The Gypsy King”, Tyson Fury, is set to make his official World Wrestling Entertainment ring debut this week when he faces wrestling superstar Braun Strowman at the WWE’s “Crown Jewel” event in Saudi Arabia this Thursday.
In a recent interview with The Telegraph, ‘The Gypsy King’ spoke about how working with WWE has completely taken his mind off of boxing. He also stated that he has no plans to continue in pro wrestling after the Crown Jewel event.
“I’m an entertainer and fast learner, so I’ve been getting the best out of it. It’s taken my mind off boxing completely,” Fury stated.
“I wouldn’t be in training camp at the moment, anyway. But it gives me something to do. I didn’t want October and November off. I knew this would be a month-long job and I knew I would be busy.”
Fury is also making another claim about whats next for the “Gypsy King”.
In an interview with Sky Sports, Fury stayed he will make his MMA debut before the end of the year, and that he will be training Conor McGregor.
”I’ve got something big coming up after this, even bigger than this,” Fury said.
“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 about it, and he’s willing to train me. 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!”
McGregor seems to be on waiting with open arms.
“Up the Fury’s! Let’s go,” tweeted McGregor.
There’s truly only one Tyson Fury!
