TYSON FURY is the latest boxing star to be added to the video game Esports Boxing Club.

The Gypsy King, 32, was revealed to be a playable character on the forthcoming PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X title in a video on social media by the vice president of global acquisitions for ESBC, Todd Grisham.

Joining the WBC champion as characters in game include Muhammad Ali, Canelo Alvarez, Amir Khan, Joe Louis, and Oleksandr Usyk.

Alongside the best fighters the world has ever seen, gamers will be able to stage their fights at some of the most iconic venues, play a career mode and have plenty of customisation options.

It was originally believed that Fury’s deal with EA Sports to appear in their UFC 4 title was an exclusive deal, but that doesn’t appear to be the case.

In the real world, Fury will be next seen in action against Deontay Wilder in their trilogy fight on October 9.

The Wythenshawe warrior was supposed to fight the American on July 24, however the fight was postponed after Fury tested positive for the coronavirus.

Fury’s diagnosis was called a ‘lie’ by Wilder, amid a growing war of words between the boxers.

But Tyson fired back on Friday evening with a fresh tirade against the American.

Fury tweeted a picture of Wilder with the phrase: “This man is a real piece of work.

“A real bully excuse maker. Not a warrior or a man at all. Beat the mug 2 times.

“I’ve battered him and his trainer. But still talking s***. Real p******.”
