Tyson Fury will make switch to MMA after boxing career and can go far ‘with the right training’, claims dad John

JOHN FURY has revealed his son Tyson will transition into MMA when he calls time on his boxing career.

The Gypsy King is 33-years-old, but according to dad John he still has plenty of fight left in him.

Fury Jr steps into the ring again on October 9 as he meets Deontay Wilder for the third time.

But when asked how Tyson would fare in MMA during an interview with JOE’s Youtube channel, John said: “With the right training, he does very well.”

Tyson’s dad went on to say: “I’ve seen him excel in different sports, wrestling. I’ve got some sort of an idea what Tyson was from that.

“And he likes to get involved, Tyson, and I know what he’s like from being a kid.

“He can use more than his hands, believe it or not. And he’s quick and light on his feet. And his balance is good.

“And I do believe if a top MMA trainer took him on, he could do big things with him. Ask Darren Till, he’s done the work with him.”

Tyson previously teased an appearance inside the Octagon in 2019, telling fans during a WWE event that he would be eager for a cage fight.

And dad John said: “I think the rougher it gets for Tyson the better he likes it.

“It brings what we call something different to his job, doesn’t it? It gives him more goals to achieve and more things to look at and address.

“And I think that’s what Tyson wants. And when he does finally retire from boxing, he’ll probably go to that and probably come back to boxing, whatever he does. But he will engage on that, you’ll see.”

When it comes to boxing Fury’s record is an impressive one.

He’s yet to taste defeat as a professional, with 30 wins from 31 bouts – and one draw.

A switch to MMA is not likely to come any time soon though, with fans desperate for an all-English bout of the ages between Tyson and Anthony Joshua.

And John once again chimed in on the matter, revealing that his son was targeting a bout with Joshua before the end of the year.
