It has long been written about possible opponents, but no one could have expected that one of Tyson's opponents would be Fury! This was confirmed today in a statement for "BT Sport".
"I received a call to fight Mike Tyson and I couldn't believe it. Of course I said "yes" to what else, "said Fury.
"I think it's very serious to have a few fights," said Fury, who said Tyson's fights would be exhibitionist.
"I think he and Holyfield are a little too old, but who am I to say if someone is capable or not?" Fury concluded.
A fight between Fury and Tyson will certainly attract attention, no matter what the character.
