Tyson Fury's dad, John Fury, a former heavyweight boxer, has called out heavyweight boxing legend, Mike Tyson as he challenges him to a bout and claims he's willing to die in the ring.
Few days ago, former heavyweight world champion, Mike Tyson, 53, announced that he is planning to return to the ring in four-round exhibition bouts to generate money for Charity and John Fury has now joined the long list of fighters willing to fight with Tyson.
John, 55, whose son Tyson Fury is a current heavyweight boxing champion, has now boasted during a foul-mouthed rant that he'll be willing to fight Mike Tyson and claimed he wouldn't mind dying in the ring.
John Fury, who had agreed to fight a bodybuilder, Mick Theo for charity, has now shifted his attention to Mike Tyson as he blasted and berates the bodybuilder.
In a video he posted on social media, he exclaimed :
"Forget you bum [Theo], I'm looking at Mike Tyson," he said.
"Mike's making a comeback; I don't value my life at 50p but let me tell you something, Mike Tyson is worth doing charity with.
"He's a proper king of a champion, a proper man tried and tested, not some doorman who I used to practice on as a 14-year-old boy. If I didn't knock out four or five a night when I was 15 I was disappointed.
"I'll fight Mike Tyson, he's making a comeback. I know he mentions my boy's name every five minutes, but here I am, John Fury is hiding from no man, not even the king of the old men Mike Tyson.
"I will fight Mike Tyson; I will not be denied, I will die in a fight."
A video of Tyson working out in a gym surfaced on social media last week as he showed the world he still has his fierceness, speed and agility.
