Not only is world boxing champion Tyson Fury one of the best boxers on the planet, but the man recently took his skills over to WWE to dabble in a wrestling career.
But the big man isn’t stopping there with combat sports, as he recently revealed he plans to make his mixed martial arts (MMA) debut soon, as well.
”I’ve got something big coming up after this, even bigger than this,” Fury said, referring to his WWE appearance. “We might see Tyson Fury have his MMA debut this year too. It’s different, but like I say, Tyson Fury taking over.”

To make it even sweeter, Fury says he has already spoken to Conor McGregor about helping him with the transition, as he revealed “Notorious” offered to train him.
“Yeah, I’ve been speaking to Conor [McGregor] 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!”
Of course, he will probably do a Deontay Wilder rematch before he opts to get into the cage. even then, Fury would need extensive training before he trades his gloves for smaller ones.
That said, it would be interesting to see how Tyson does in MMA, especially with the assistance of McGregor.
