Tommy Fury and Roy Jones Jr Strike a Deal for Exhibition Fight
In an exciting turn of events, Tommy Fury has agreed to face off against legendary boxer Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition match. This comes as Tommy's father, John, has been pursuing a bout with heavyweight icon Mike Tyson, whom he named his other son after.
Jones' Proposal for the Co-Main Event
During negotiations, Roy Jones Jr proposed a thrilling idea. He suggested that if John Fury were to fight Mike Tyson, Tommy and he should have their own co-main event on the undercard. Tommy, who is only 24 years old, eagerly accepted the offer, saying, "Hey, let's do it."
A Clash of Boxing Titans
If this exhibition fight were to come to fruition, it would undoubtedly be a spectacle for boxing fans everywhere. Despite retiring in 2018, Jones has made a comeback and even had a draw with Tyson in a 2020 exhibition. He most recently lost on points to former UFC champion Anthony Pettis in April of this year.
On the other hand, Tommy Fury is riding high on two victories against YouTubers-turned boxers Jake Paul and KSI. His recent face-to-face meeting with Jones further fueled his desire to arrange an exhibition match, regardless of whether his dad and Iron Mike end up fighting.
Tommy expressed his enthusiasm, saying, "Let's get this stuff made, regardless of if Mike and my dad don't fight me and Roy Jones exhibition, why not?"
