Mike Tyson has sent the boxing world buzzing with his amazing training video on Instagram that saw him throw powerful punches at his trainer.
Now Tyson Fury has added fuel to the fire by claiming that he had accepted an offer to fight the former boxer in an exhibition match.
Fury said, “I did get a phone call with a chance to fight Mike Tyson and I was like, ‘What?'”
He added, “I had a phone call saying, ‘Would you like to fight Mike Tyson in an exhibition fight?’ I was like, ‘Hell yeah!’ I don’t think anything materialized out of it to be honest. I think he’s definitely serious about doing some fights or whatever. He’s fought Holyfield twice so they’re both old now aren’t they?”
He went on, “I think they’re a bit long in the teeth, but then again who am I to say anything, what anybody’s capable of after everybody’s unbelievable stories. I wouldn’t try and kill anybody’s dreams of doing anything they want if they’re both fit to fight and medically fit then let them do what they’ve got to do, it’s their life not mine.”
