Tyson Fury exclusive: Will Gypsy King return to WWE?

  • Tom Ward

Tyson Fury has confirmed he will return to the WWE in the near future.

The Gypsy King will make the second defence of his WBC heavyweight title against Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium on April 23.

Fury, 33, is then expected to face the winner of Anthony Joshua‘s rematch with Oleksandr Usyk later this year.

That’s despite insisting he will retire next month on ‘a massive yacht abroad‘.

But Fury, who formed a tag team with former opponent Braun Strowman, admits he will be back in the wrestling ring at some stage having previously revealed his family are massive fans of the organisation.

Fury exclusively told GiveMeSport: “One million per cent, you will see me in the WWE again. One million per cent.”

A master of the mind games, Fury also claimed the moral victory over Whyte for not showing up to the press conference, and even compared himself to Professor Charles Xavier from Marvel’s ‘The X-Men’.

He added: “Yes, most definitely I’m winning the fight.

“I’m already in his mind rent free.

“And I’m Professor X living in it for free.”

The two have sparred together previously, with Whyte claiming he ‘bashed’ Fury in sparring back in 2012.

Fury has never forgiven Whyte for those comments, and although the Body Snatcher has stayed fairly quiet on social media, the Mancunian said he has no respect for his fellow Brit.

Asked if he respects him in any way shape or form, he replied: “No, not at all.

“I think he’s a bum, a dosser, and he’s going to get knocked spark out.

“Thank you very much and good night.”

Fury won the WBC title with a seven-round demolition of Deontay Wilder in February 2020.

He successfully defended it against the Bronze Bomber in Las Vegas last October to extend his record to 22 knockouts from 31 victories.

With wins over Derek Chisora, Wladimir Klitschko and Otto Wallin, Fury’s resume is arguably up there with some of the best on paper.

Top Rank CEO Bob Arum has even argued that Fury is the greatest heavyweight of all-time.

But he insists that he is unconcerned about how history will remember him in the years to come.

He admitted: “I don’t really care to be honest because I’ll be done.

“It’s very unimportant to the Gypsy King after the event.

“It’s all about being relevant now today!”
