John Fury has called out Mike Tyson for a charity boxing fight


We already live in a pretty strange world right now given the fact the coronavirus is tearing through each and every country, but things have just got even stranger.

John Fury, father of Tyson Fury, has just sent a challenge to Mike Tyson to face him in a charity boxing event sometime in the near future.

It’s been well documented in recent weeks that Iron Mike fancies a return to the squared circle, and has admitted that he’d be willing to fight again if it was for charity and if it was exhibition bouts only.

Ever since those comments, he’s been challenged left, right and centre.

Rugby union legend Sonny Bill Williams wants a piece of him and a $1 million offer is on the table, whilst Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship also want The Baddest Man on the Planet and have offered him £16m, according to reports.

Well, the latest person to throw their name into the hat is John Fury, who named his son after Mike Tyson.

In a video posted by talkSPORT’s Michael Benson, Fury sits down in front of the camera and directly calls out Tyson, claiming he wants a piece of the legendary American.

Fury says: “I’m looking at fighting Mike Tyson, how’s that?

“Mike is making a comeback. I don’t value my life to 50p, but let me tell you something, Mike Tyson is worth doing charity with.

“Here I am. John Fury is hiding from no man. I will fight Mike Tyson.

“I will die in a fight. I will die before I give in.”

So, yeah, there you have it. John Fury is willing to die in order to fight the legend that is Mike Tyson. All in the name of charity.

We do truly live in surreal times, don’t we?!
