TYSON FURY joked his dad should join “middle-aged” Love Island and revealed he is “feeling fantastic” ahead of his next fight.
Fury signed his 56-year-old dad up to Instagram and the pair posted a video thanking fans for their support.
Then WBC heavyweight champion Tyson, 31, told his dad to follow in the footsteps of son Tommy, who made a name for himself of ITV’s hit reality TV show.
Tyson said: “I tell you what, dad, what do you have to say to all your fans because over 50,000 followers in 24 hours?”
John responded: “Well that’s incredible and I thank you very, very much for showing interest in me.
“Because me being a nobody, I’m only the father of the heavyweight king of the world.”
Tyson followed up: “Listen, if we can get Love Island stars for middle aged people, put me down! Middle aged Love Island!”
Tommy fought twice as a professional before entering Love Island and came out a fully-fledged celebrity along with partner Molly-Mae Hague.
He has boxed once more since, but gained over 3.1million followers.
Tyson on the other hand regained the world title in February and prepares for an immediate rematch against Deontay Wilder, 34.
And dad John insisted his son’s fitness almost beggars belief.
Tyson said: “Feeling absolutely fantastic, cannot wait to fight.”
John added: “Listen, what I’m seeing here is unbelievable if it wasn’t witnessed by other people you’d never believe it.
“Keep tuning in because this is an incredible journey.”
