“The Gypsy King” has officially gotten the attention of the WWE Champion.
As we reported over the weekend, boxing heavyweight champion Tyson Fury released a video on his Twitter feed on Sunday where he issued a formal challenge to Drew McIntyre.
For those who missed it, Fury stated the following when referencing “The Scottish Psychopath” in the video:
“Been sitting on the train, after a long and busy weekend, and I’m thinking about people I want to punch in the face,” Fury said. “And the first one that springs to mind is a big fella called, Drew McIntyre. Now, Drew, you’ve been having quite a bit to say about me, lately. I loved to punch your face in, honestly. Bang! Right in the lips. So, grow a pair, step up to the plate, and come fight the master — me. So, this is an official challenge video to Drew McIntyre, the WWE Heavyweight Champion of the world. I already knocked your pal out, Braun Strowman. I’ll do the same to you. Bring it.”
After catching wind of the call-out, McIntyre took to his own Twitter feed to respond to the challenge from the king of the heavyweight division of professional boxing.
McIntyre wrote the following response, which he directly tweeted to Fury via Twitter on Monday morning:
“I’m not one of the normal bums you pick to fight, I’m not some punching bag getting paid to turn up and lose. Nice timing by the way, even with a fractured jaw I’m pretty confident I could do 12 rounds with your pillow fists. Nice try, ‘King.’ – Your WWE Champion.”
