(Video) Tyson Fury’s son reveals which boxer he wants to emulate… and it’s NOT the Gypsy King

Tyson Fury has shared a quite hilarious clip of his son revealing who he wants to be when he grows up.

Tyson Fury is the heavyweight champion of the world – at least until he formally retires – and one of the best pound for pound fighters on the planet.

You could be forgiven for thinking that his children would idolise him and dream of one day growing up to be the man and fighter that he is.

While his young son Adonis is intending to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a boxer, it’s not the Gyspy King that he’s hoping to emulate.

Instead, when quizzed by his father as to which fighter he would like to become, Adonis revealed his desire to fight like Deontay Wilder.

Fury and Wilder had a memorable trilogy bout over in the USA. Opponents, rivals, and enemies for a period, who ended up sharing a huge amount of respect.

It appears as though that has been passed down to young Adonis. Perhaps one day he will realise his dream of being a feared heavyweight contender.
