Fury: In WWE or Proper Fight - I'd Flatten Lesnar in 30 Seconds

Heavyweight contender Tyson Fury is slated to return on February 22nd, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, in a rematch with WBC world champion Deontay Wilder.

They fought to a controversial twelve round split draw in December 2018, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

But Fury has continued to discuss the possibility of continuing his run with the WWE - and even entering the world of mixed martial arts.

Back in October, Fury flew to Saudi Arabia to make his WWE debut, with a countout victory over Braun Strowman.

Also on the card, WWE heavyweight champion (and former UFC heavyweight champion) Brock Lesnar gained a win over Cain Velasquez.

Fury says he would love to compete against Lesnar - either in a WWE bout or some kind of legit fight in MMA or boxing.

“Yeah, I fancy a fight with Brock, for sure,” Fury said to the True Geordie podcast. “I watched a few of his fights. (He’s) pretty handy, but I can flatten him. In a WWE match or in a proper fight, I can flatten Brock Lesnar in 30 seconds.”

Fury was recent seen doing some MMA training with middleweight contender Darren Till, and the Gypsy King left a good impression on him.

"I think it’s about 70/30. 70 yes, 30 no [that he can make the transition to MMA],” Till told BT Sport.

"You gotta remember boxing to MMA is very different as well. He’s making a lot of money, he’s a top three heavyweight. I’d love to see it for the entertainment factor.

“It’s all about the entertainment and whoever he gets - maybe Stipe wants to fight him and probably thinks he can box him. I don’t think so. But I hope so. But maybe I’d be in on a little percentage of that as Coach Till. We’re the same management, we’re both MTK so no matter what I’m just supporting him, I’m supporting my team."

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll;20220455]Cain Velazquez destroyed Brock Lesnar in a real fight. But loses to him in WWE. Just goes to show how worthless that pro wrestling circus is.[/QUOTE] Pretty cool of Cain to do that actually.

If Lesnar gets hold of him it's over of course. And he will. He has a 25inch neck and Fury isn't concussive.

I don't really mind Fury clowning around in the WWF. The only thing is some fans will start assuming boxing fights are rigged like in wrestling.
