If this (Lennox Lewis) goes well, Imma push myself deeper.

I don’t know, maybe, Tyson Fury, he told me, if I keep winning if I do good.

That’s my buddy,” said Mike Tyson.

While Roy Jones Jr and Lennox Lewis can still be considered as fair matchups, Tyson Fury is still in his prime and is trying to smash his way up to the heavyweight throne.

Given that fighters like Deontay Wilder, Dillian Whyte, and Anthony Joshua are still standing in his way to heavyweight unification, will Tyson Fury even have the time to fight ‘Iron’ Mike?

Tyson Fury wants to fight Mike Tyson in an exhibition bout

Tyson Fury is now all set to face Deontay Wilder on October 9. ‘The Bronze Bomber’ is looking to redeem his first career loss against Fury in early 2020. Even though Tyson Fury is already looking at future opponents like Dillian Whyte and Anthony Joshua, the Alabama native still holds the key to Fury’s journey to the top.

‘The Gypsy King’ is at the center of the heavyweight division right now. He holds a critical position and many top contenders now look at him as the key to a division unification bout.

In a recent interview, Tyson Fury gave a glimpse into his plans after the Deontay Wilder fight. If he can secure a win on October 9, the Englishman then wants to fight Dillian Whyte in a mega homecoming bout.

He added that if the Dillian Whyte fight falls through, he would also “love” to fight boxing legend Mike Tyon in an exhibition match.

I love watching Mike fight, his comeback was amazing and I would love to fight Mike in an exhibition.

If the December fight with Dillian Whyte doesn’t happen, I would love to fight Mike in an exhibition.

Tyson vs Tyson, past vs present, there is so much fun to have out there in this game,said Tyson Fury.
