Mike Tyson Tries To Get In Fight With Tyson Fury

Tyson Fury is the WBC World Heavyweight Champion and he competed against Deontay Wilder on October 9th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Tyson Fury was also possibly caught cheating using gloves.



After a very long back and forth boxing match that featured Deontay Wilder knocking Tyson Fury down twice during the fourth round, it was Tyson Fury who won the boxing match after he defeated Deontay Wilder in the 11th round. He then retired recently as well.

BKFC CEO David Feldman told TMZ Sports he made an offer to Tyson Fury, although he can’t sign him until he completes his three more contracted boxing matches.

“It was a different kind of deal,” Feldman explained. “I mean it was a deal where [Fury would] be involved in the growth of this thing and maybe get a piece of the company. At this time he can’t do it right now, but we’re gonna revisit that.”

On talkSPORT Breakfast on Thursday though, Tyson Fury defended Oleksandr Usyk.

He’s beat a big guy before, AJ – 6ft 6ins – I’m not that much taller than him.

“I’ve been searching the world, I’ve travelled all over, to find a challenger who can beat me, and I can’t find one. 14 years…

Usyk’s about 6ft 3ins and just under 16 stone.

“He’s a pretty big boy, he’s a lot bigger than Muhammad Ali was back in the day.

He’s bigger than Evander Holyfield, he’s bigger than Mike Tyson, he’s bigger than Joe Frazier, he’s bigger than Ken Norton.

“He’s probably the same size as ‘big’ George Foreman.

Everybody used to say ‘big’ George Foreman, now they’re saying ‘little tiny’ Usyk at the same weight and size.”

“There was talk of it,” Fury said to iFL TV via World Boxing News about potentially fighting Mike Tyson in an exhibition. “His people contacted me. Mike and I had a phone call. It was all real but never materialized.”

“Mike was talking about £500 million ($620 million) figures. Whoever was offering the comeback money to Mike offered us peanuts.”
