Jon Jones recently implied that he is not interested in fighting Tyson Fury for an eight-figure paycheck. According to Jones, he is already making that kind of money in the UFC. Despite Jones’ statements, the father of ‘The Gypsy King’ is hopeful that his son will enter the octagon with ‘Bones’ after the Francis Ngannou fight.

John Fury is all in for an “all-in battle” between Jones and ‘The Gypsy King’. In this context, the father of the boxing Heavyweight champion wishes his son would be allowed to punch and kick. “He’ll go in the Octagon with anybody. If you let Tyson kick and punch you and do all the things to you,” said Fury.

I want the best man to walk out of it,” declared Fury. However, since Fury and Ngannou have already agreed to a boxing match, John hopes his son and Jones will come to an agreement about “an all-in battle“.
