Tyson Fury put on one of the greatest performances of his life on 9th October. In a heavyweight clash against Deontay Wilder, Fury defended his WBC belt for the first time. Fans, former boxers, promoters, and boxing analysts alike have all called the fight one of the greatest heavyweight fights of all time.

Both the fighters involved gave it their all and neither of them gave up. Praises and congratulations have continued coming in from all over the world, for both the fighters.

Now though, it seems like ‘The Gypsy King’ may just land a film role because of his performance in the ring. In a video taken by British Strongman Eddie Hall, Sylvester Stallone offers Fury a role.

“Bingo! Hey Tyson, you’re amazing. Seriously, that’s the fight of the century and it couldn’t happen to a better guy. I was talking to Eddie about that theory. He had a plan until you hit him, and like all bad plans, it went out the window, just fantastic, great theatre. By the way, I think you have a fantastic career in movies. So the next expendables, done deal!” Stallone said.

Fury may just make an appearance in the next Expendables movie. The Saturday night fight at the T-Mobile Arena was nothing short of theatrics. In the third round, Fury knocked ‘The Bronze Bomber’ out, but he somehow survived the round.

The very next round, Wilder knocked Fury down twice in the same round, but somehow Fury escaped the count twice. He then came back late to finish the fight in the 11th round via KO.

What’s next for Tyson Fury?

The Nevada State Athletic Commission handed Fury a 45-day suspension following his victory to Wilder. They do this to ensure the fighters that take serious damage inside the ring get adequate time to recover and rest. Fury will decide his next fight when he comes back from his well-earned break.

However, he will most likely face the WBC mandatory challenger. Currently, Dillian Whyte holds the WBC interim belt and is the challenger. He will face Otto Wallin on 30th October and the winner of that fight will then challenge Fury for the belt.
