Tyson Fury's DAD John calls out former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson
‘John Fury is hiding from no man, not even the king of the old men… I will fight Mike Tyson!’: Tyson Fury’s DAD calls out former heavyweight champion for charity boxing fight in incredible rant to camera
Tyson Fury’s father John has called out heavyweight legend Mike Tyson for a charity bout – as the latter contemplates coming out of retirement.
Last week, a video emerged of Tyson working out on the pads and just a glimpse of the Brooklyn-born star’s blistering speed and power has given fans hope that a return is still a possibility.
The 53-year-old has reportedly been offered a staggering $20million (£16m) to have a fight with the brutal Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship promotion, while a charity comeback against rugby legend Sonny Bill Williams in Australia has also been rumoured.

And now Fury senior has laid down the gauntlet to the American.
‘Forget you bum [Theo], I’m looking at Mike Tyson,’ he said. ‘Mike’s making a comeback; I don’t value my life at 50p but let me tell you something, Mike Tyson is worth doing charity with.
‘He’s a proper king of a champion, a proper man tried and tested, not some doorman who I used to practice on as a 14-year-old boy. If I didn’t knock out four or five a night when I was 15 I was disappointed.
‘I’ll fight Mike Tyson, he’s making a comeback. I know he mentions my boy’s name every five minutes, but here I am, John Fury is hiding from no man, not even the king of the old men Mike Tyson.
‘I will fight Mike Tyson; I will not be denied, I will die in a fight.’
