Lineal heavyweight champion of the world Tyson Fury is all set to fight Braun Strowman at WWE ‘Crown Jewel’ event at the King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on October 31.
On the same card, former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez will battle former UFC heavyweight champion and WWE champion, Brock Lesnar.
In a recent interview with MMAJunkie, the former WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight champion of the world Tyson Fury said that he is interested in fighting Cain Velasquez in the WWE.
“Yeah, listen. Me and Cain, we’ve got a rivalry going back from when he was UFC heavyweight champion, from a right few years ago,” Fury said. “There was a lot of back and forward on social media back then. And, who knows, maybe that rivalry could spill over into WWE.”
“I’d love to fight them all,” he said. “I’m a prizefighter. I’ve never ducked a fight in my life, and I’ll fight anybody.” (H/T – MMAJunkie.com)
The fight will definitely interest many MMA and Boxing fans. Tyson Fury hasn’t lost a professional fight in his career yet and is supposed to fight WBC heavyweight champion of the world Deontay Wilder early next year.
On the other hand, Cain Velasquez has retired from the UFC to join WWE fulltime. He lost his last fight to Francis Ngannou via TKO in the first round in February earlier this year.
