Ahead of The Gypsy King's monumental WWE debut against Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel next week, I had the pleasure of chatting with undefeated heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury on a conference call earlier today.

I asked Fury about who his dream match in WWE would be and his interactions with Vince McMahon among other things. But I had to ask about WWE's world-class training facilities, and find out what an undefeated heavyweight boxer, who has spent much of his life in training camps, thinks of the facilities.

You've spent a fair bit of time training at the WWE Performance Center, what are your thoughts on that as a facility?

"Unbelievable facility. One of the best facilities in the world for training. I just wish there were more facilities like that in boxing - to make young fighters become great professionals.
"I think you need more training facilities like that. I know they have one for GB in Sheffield, they have that. But not many for professional sports. If there is even one at all. I don't think so."

Following WWE's announcement that Fury would make his in-ring debut at the upcoming Crown Jewel show in Saudi Arabia against Braun Strowman, the company uploaded a YouTube clip of The Gypsy King running the ropes and getting involved in a lock-up - before being completely derailed by The Monster Among Men in an ambush as he prepared for their encounter. You can watch the entire clip below.

Our Dropkick DiSKussions podcast host Korey Gunz and professional wrestling insider Tom Colohue spoke about this and more this week. You can catch the entire show via the video below.
