Tyson Fury is the most unpredictable heavyweight of the modern boxing era. The WBC heavyweight king often makes headlines with his witty statements, crucifying trash talks, and sublime in-ring performances. Fury has a knack of going after his rivals in the heavyweight space, but at times, he doesn’t spare literally anyone and everyone.

That said, last month, he called out fellow compatriot and boxing champ, Savannah Marshall, for a fight. No one expected Fury to take a jibe at her, but ‘The Gypsy King’ being himself, he came up with this call out to raise countless eyebrows.

Marshall recently interacted with Sky Sports Boxing. Here, she gave her candid notion on Fury’s call-outs.

She said, “There you go. There’s so much value when the heavyweight champion of the world calling you around.”

“Yeah, I’ve met Tyson, yeah, was unbelievable unbelievable for me. He’s done so much, right?”

Fury, in his interview, spoke about battling Marshall in a cross-gender heavyweight matchup. ‘The Gypsy King’ even seemed serious about this fight, speaking about him wearing 16-ounce gloves, and Marshall wearing 8-ounce gloves for the contest.

A couple of months back, Fury put on a staggering performance against Deontay Wilder. The duo squared off for the third time and it was the first occasion where Fury was set to defend a world title. That said, the champ did what he was supposed to, and he came out as the winner of the fight.

Since then, he’s been in the news, making prolific statements.

However, this worked well, and it seems the audience is adaptable for more. That said, cross-gender matchups might turn into a trend, provided the biggest of stars take up the ring space from both female and male boxing spaces.

Citing that, it seems Fury and Marshall might take up a fight like this at some point in the future to begin a new trend.
