Mike Tyson, Tyson Fury To Fight On ESPN
Are Mike Tyson and Tyson Fury set to fight on ESPN? An offer has been extended to the two men, but it remains to be seen if it will ultimately be accepted.
“We even had an offer from ESPN so it was definitely big, definitely official but I don’t think they’re going down that route now,” Fury said during a recent interview.
Rumors of a potential bout between Fury and Tyson began circulating when the latter began posting videos to social showcasing himself getting back into fighting shape.
A number of potential opponents for him were cited, with Fury being at the top of the list.
For what it is worth, Fury had nothing but positive things to say about Tyson – someone he regards as an undeniable legend.
“I wish him luck in anything he does because the guys a legend and I hope he comes back and does well and gets out and gets back to his family in one piece,” he said.
Fury has two prospective matches lined up for the near future: a third bout against Deontay Wilder and a first showdown versus Anthony Joshua.
Tyson, meanwhile, does not have anything lined up for the immediate future.
