A few months back, boxing stalwart Tyson Fury teased his initiation into the UFC and desired to train with the 2-divisional champion Conor McGregor. If that’s not enough, he has now teased his wife, Paris Fury, to step up to the MMA promotion.
Betting on the fact that it will never happen for real, ‘The Gypsy King’ didn’t hesitate to boast of his wife’s striking abilities.
While we have always seen the WBC Heavyweight Champion showcase his training clips, this time his wife stepped up for the role. In the new clip, Paris Fury was seen hitting on the punching bag, while her husband Tyson Fury encouraged her.
What’s more, the heavyweight kingpin tagged UFC’s Twitter handle, raising multiple eyebrows. As Paris continued to throw strikes, Tyson Fury yelled, “Go up Paris. Go up. That’s it, she is at it. UFC Paris. That’s it, well (done).”
Considering that Paris has no intentions of going to the UFC, she is still an inspiration for mothers and wives, all over the world.
Since his WBC title win against Deontay Wilder in February, the 32-year-old hasn’t returned to the ring. That said, he has constantly demanded the trilogy fight against Wilder.
However, in the absence of any actionable responses from the Bronze Bomber, Fury seems to have moved on from the bout.
He has also touted an appearance in December against Agit Kabayel, but looking at the ongoing scenario, the fight will likely fall through. So, 2021 appears to be a favorable time for ‘The Gypsy King’s’ return.
He can possibly come back to fight for the unified titles against Anthony Joshua in an ultimate British showdown. Being the Heavyweight World Champions of this time, Joshua and Fury have teased a matchup for a long time.
While Joshua will primarily defend his belts against Kubrat Pulev on December 12, a successful defense will cement his spot against Tyson Fury.
Boxing pundits and fans have already taken their sides to the matchup, where John Fury has recently claimed to bet £1 million over his son. It is only a matter of time until we finally see the gladiators lock horns.
