Boxing world champion Tyson Fury seems pretty serious about trying his hand at MMA.
Fury expressed his interest in crossing over when he mentioned training with former UFC two-division champion Conor McGregor last month.
Upon announcing his interest in MMA, the undefeated Fury called out hard-hitting UFC heavyweight contender Francis Ngannou and champ Stipe Miocic for fights, and Ngannou immediately responded.
Ngannou recently paid a visit to former heavyweight boxing champ and legend Mike Tyson, who he says offered to help him train for a potential fight with Fury.
Fury, who’s looking to run things back with WBC heavyweight champ Deontay Wilder, said he’ll get to Ngannou and the rest of the heavyweights when he’s done boxing.
Ill deal with you and all the other Mma heavyweights when I’m done with my boxing fights,
It won’t be long to wait! Then I’ll show u how we roll.
In the meantime, he’ll be getting in some training with former welterweight title challenger Till, who had a successful middleweight debut with a split decision win over Kelvin Gastelum last week at UFC 244.
