Tyson Fury revealed the ridiculous amount of money offered by Mike Tyson

Heavyweight WBC champion Tyson Fury revealed why the match between him and the American legend could not be played, even if it was just a performance.

Since the announcement of his re-export to the ring, even with an exhibition bout, Mike Tyson has made the martial arts village curious about his upcoming opponent. From former rival Evander Holyfield to MMA Wanderlei Silva’s “Ax Hammer Assassin”, all are mentioned.

Among them, heavyweight champion WBC Tyson Fury is one of the most prominent names. As an English boxer, owner of the most prestigious boxing ring, Fury is a better choice for Mike Tyson’s return on the ring.

However, this idea was soon suppressed when Tyson Fury revealed he was only receiving ridiculous offers for the match. When the bonus ratio between the two sides is extremely large.

“When Mike Tyson’s men contacted me, he and I had a talk on the phone. It’s true, it’s just impossible to come to an agreement. ” – Tyson Fury confirmed.

“They offered some money to Mike, and came back to offer me a tiny amount. While Mike said to me as if he got 500 million dollars, the numbers on paper are like a joke”. In the end, nothing came out. I was offered $ 10 million by ESPN for a performance match, but that’s all and everyone goes home”.

Besides, Tyson Fury also said that money is not the only reason he refused to take the call with Mike Tyson. What Fury is afraid of is that being able to be “knocked” by an old boxer like Mike will greatly affect the image of a champion still in position.

However, based on information from Tyson Fury, it can be seen that Mike Tyson’s return is in progress. The audience may soon see the scariest punch in heavy history back in the ring in the near future.

Tyson Fury’s father had threatened to not talk to him if he fought Deontay Wilder

A tough decision from his father did not make Tyson Fury give up his famous “crazy” personality.

John Fury, the father of the WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, recently said he threatened to never talk to his son if Tyson Furry dared to fight Wilder.

Tyson Fury returned to the ring in 2018, after more than three years fighting alcohol, drug addiction and depression that made him overweight and weighed 177 kg. Tyson Fury’s return journey is ups and downs enough to make a film in depth.

When he just returned, Tyson Fury quickly won 2 warm-up victories in just 2 months and then immediately entered the controversial draw with Deontay Wilder at the end of 2018. In that match, Tyson Fury despite being overwhelming, he was still seen by Deontay Wilder twice on the floor.

“Tyson came to me and said he was going to fight Wilder. I told him, if you do, Dad won’t talk to you until you die. Because you will be beaten up. Just lost more than 60kg in a few months, I’m not ready. I told him to quit that game, have a few warm-ups because he hasn’t reached its level yet. My strength is very weak, I can’t fight. And he told me that he was a martial artist, if he was beaten it wouldn’t be. He said” I’ll do what Joshua wouldn’t dare do. If he (Wilder) gradually has a child, it can’t be helped. The best will win” – Mr. John Fury shared.

Mr. John proudly: “Just that and the rest is history. It’s one of the greatest comebacks in history. Who can do that when you’ve been knocked down twice?”

Then, at the 2020 rematch, Tyson Fury took an overwhelming TKO win over Deontay Wilder. The new WBC heavyweight king is also expected to play Anthony Joshua in 2021.
