Tyson Fury isn’t content with proving he is the best big man in boxing it seems he wasn’t to prove he is the best big man in all fighting codes.
The Manchester based Irish heavyweight has bizarrely called out fellow man mountain and UFC big gun Brock Lesnar.
In a desperate attempt to fight for the Irish heavyweight title Andy Lee’s cousin tried to tempt all the Irish heavyweights to fight him on his September 17 Belfast debut to no avail, but has the King’s Hall booked again in November.
It is rumoured Hennessy Sports, the British and Commonwealth champions promoters, have offered Martin ‘The Iron Man’ Rogan another opportunity to fight the fighter he has traded numerous verbal blows with, but it seems Fury wants an even bigger draw.
“I want to fight Brock Lesnar in the cage in a stand up fight with no gloves,” Fury said earlier today.
It is most likely a publicity stunt and Fury is very unlikely to tempt the former WWE wrestling star into the ring.
Lesnar is reputed to earn over 5.4 million dollars per fight and draws over one million pay per view customers every time he enters the UFC octagon. He has just returned to training after a second bout of diverticulitis and is signed to fight Dutch former K1 and Strikeforce champ Alistar Overeem latter this year.
