Tyson Fury’s dad has released a foul-mouthed – and frankly, a bit strange – video in which he calls out Mike Tyson for a bo-xing match. Big John Fury vs Iron Mike? We’d all like to see that get off the ground, right? Well, the elder Fury certainly does. Check out this video:
It starts as a video on social media addressed to Mick Theo – a bodybuilder who John has already agreed to fi-ght – but then his attention quickly turns to the former undi-sputed heavyweight champion of the world.Tyson – Mike, that is – recently announced that he’s looking to get back into the ring at the tender age of just 53 years old.
He’s looking to get involved in some four-round bo-uts, and from the videos that have emerged of him training, he still looks in pretty good shape.
John Fury is no slo-uch when it comes to fitness, though. Oh, and he’s absolutely massive, too.Addressing Theo, John ra-nts: “Forget you, bum, I’m looking at Mike Tyson,
“Mike’s making a comeback; I don’t value my life at 50p but let me tell you something, Mike Tyson is worth doing charity with.
“He’s a proper king of a champion, a proper man tried and tested, not some doorman who I used to practice on as a 14-year-old boy. If I didn’t knock out four or five a night when I was 15, I was disappointed.”I’ll fi-ght Mike Tyson, he’s making a comeback. I know he mentions my boy’s name every five minutes, but here I am, John Fury is hiding from no man, not even the king of the old men, Mike Tyson.
“I will fi-ght Mike Tyson. I will not be denied, I will di-e in a fi-ght.”
Well, being prepared to di-e in the fi-ght is probably a useful characteristic for most people willing to fi-ght Mike Tyson, to be fair.
However, most wouldn’t fancy getting beyond the ropes with John Fury, either.Speaking on an Instagram Live after announcing his comeback, Tyson said: “I’ve been hi-tting the mi-tts for the last week.
“That’s been tough, my body is really ja-cked up and really sore from hi-tting the mi-tts.
“I’ve been working out, I’ve been trying to get in the ring, I think I’m going to box some exhibitions and get in shape.””I want to go to the gym and get in shape to be able to box three or four-round exhibitions for some charities and stuff.
“Some charity exhibitions, make some money, help some homele-ss and dr-g-affe-cted motherf***er like me.”Even at 53, there’s still a lot of folks who wouldn’t fancy that particular challenge.
