What’s the story?

In an interview with The Gazette, Tyson Fury revealed that he’d love to face ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin potentially in April 2018.

Additionally, Fury also asserted that he has resumed training, and although it’s tough, he enjoys the grind of the process. Besides, Fury also jested about being at an expensive diner


In case you didn’t know…

Tyson Fury is in the middle of a court battle with the UK Anti-Doping Commission and has pointed out his intentions of regaining his boxing license soon.

The powers that be allege that Fury tested positive for a banned Performance Enhancing Drug (PED), apart from his recreational drug abuse; and the ‘Gypsy King’ was stripped of his Heavyweight titles as a result. 

The heart of the matter

Tyson Fury also dealt with a ton of personal problems, as we’ve detailed right HERE; but was recently spotted at an expensive diner names ‘Jurys Inn’ in Middlesbrough that charges £100-per-head; where he was overheard jesting that he’s merely there ‘for the strippers’.

Furthermore, Fury explained his intentions of facing WWE legend ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin in April (the moth of Wrestlemania 34) next year—

“Hopefully I will be back in April. I’m looking at Stone Cold Steve Austin."
“Training is going good, but training is what training is. It is hard work but I do enjoy it.”

What’s next?

Should Tyson Fury return to the sport of professional boxing, big names such as Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder, Joseph Parker, Luis Ortiz and others await him in the Heavyweight Division.

On the other hand, if Fury chooses to make the transition to the WWE, he’d be following in the foot-steps on legendary Heavyweight pugilist ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson—with the latter having appeared alongside Steve Austin and Shawn Michaels at Wrestelemania as well as with DX (Michaels and Triple H) in the years that followed.

Author’s take

For those unaware, Tyson Fury is entertainment personified!

It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that Fury cuts a better promo than most modern-day blokes in pro-wrestling who seem as though they’re deer in headlights when given a microphone. Look no further! Just watch the following video to get a clue about the Gypsy King’s undeniable mic skills—
