And it appears ‘Gypsy John’ wants in on the action.
Speaking to SecondsOut he said,
“I love the guy, I named my son after him. And if he wants to fight me on the undercard he can, no problem.”
“I’m a fighting man. I’m old but I’m a fighting man.
“He’s a fighting man. He’s old. We’re two geriatrics.
“If he wants to fight me and I want to fight him, which I do, I’ve made it quite clear, we can do it.
“I’ve been knocked out before, doesn’t make any difference to me, as long as we can entertain the paying public and put smiles on their faces, that’ll do me.”
It remains unlikely that John Fury will ever take on Mike Tyson but stranger things have happened. Any interest in this scrap? Let us know in the comments.
