Tyson Fury Calls For Exhibition Boxing Match With The Rock

It looks like Tyson Fury has decided to move on from Drew McIntyre.

Tyson Fury recently retired from boxing after knocking Dillan Whyte out cold. Following the fight, he teased coming over to WWE to fight Drew McIntyre. The pair have gone back and forth on social media for a few years now and Fury even had a match in the WWE, defeating Braun Strowman by count out.

Fury told Good Morning Britain that he has two exhibition fights in mind despite his retirement, and one of them includes one of pro wrestling’s biggest names:

“This is not professional boxing, this is pure entertainment. Nothing more, nothing less. The difference is, the exhibition is you’re not there to win or lose. You’re there to enjoy, have a good time, and put on a show for the fans. You can fight old-timers, famous people, whoever you want. I’m looking at fighting Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis, Frank Bruno, whoever. The Rock, Dwayne Johnson, that would be fantastic. You never know who we could be fighting on one of these shows, but that’s what I’m open to in the upcoming future.”

The heavyweight boxing champion of the world vs The Rock would be an incredible event and the pressers would be highly entertaining. It is unlikely The Rock would accept the match due to his busy schedule but the idea is quite fun to imagine.
