Tyson Fury Accepts The Challenge From Drew McIntyre

Last October, WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury achieved a childhood dream by making his in-ring debut for the WWE.

Fury traveled to Saudi Arabia and defeated WWE superstar Braun Strowman by countout, as part of a big Crown Jewel event.

On Sunday night, in the main event of Wrestlemania 36 - Day 2, Drew McIntyre capture the WWE's heavyweight title when he defeated Brock Lesnar. The two day Wrestlemania card was held behind closed doors and matches were taped at different locations.

Afterwards, McIntyre conducted an interview where he called out Fury and English soccer star Chris Sutton.

"When it gets backs to normal, the next thing I want to do is fight Chris Sutton. You set it up. Finally, when everything gets back to normal and I can get back to the UK and parade about with the belt, the last thing I want to do is have the match with Sutton. You’d be in my corner. I know Tyson Fury is on the show today, as well," McIntyre told Talk Sport.

"I need to bring up Fury because he was talking trash about me, so I know he’s coming on the show. Tell him ‘I saw what you said about me.’ He didn’t care who won the match [between Lesnar and I], he thought I was going to win and thinks he can smash me. Just let him know ‘Fury I’ve won the championship, now I’m paying attention to you’. After I beat Sutton, I’m coming for Fury."

Fury, who wants to continue making appearances in a WWE ring, answered the call.

"Drew McIntyre called me out after his WWE Wrestlemania 36 victory. First I say congratulations and what a fantastic job. Secondly I accept his challenge, anytime any place, anywhere," Fury stated.

Chris Sutton? The man has got to be over 50 and 20 years retired from football. Decent striker in his day, but never really considered a hard man. Now if he'd mentioned Duncan Ferguson instead......

[QUOTE=James Hunt;20500644]Yea, he was slapping him like a b[B]i[/B]tch. But in the rematch, Fury decided to rather punch him and look what happened. It was so brutal it made One-trick Phoney's arse lickers start crying about the first fight.[/QUOTE] Punched…

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll;20500137]WWE is holding events and PPVs behind closed doors. I don't see why boxing can't do the same.[/QUOTE] Reliance upon emergency services is probably the biggest issue. WWE have their own team of medical personnel whilst promoters generally do not.…
