Tyson Fury vs Mike Tyson a ‘really deadly’ fight, claims Bob Arum as Brit’s US promoter insists he wants no part in bout – The Sun

TYSON FURY fighting Mike Tyson could be "deadly" according to legendary promoter Bob Arum.

After showing off a sensational body transformation, Iron Mike has said he will return to boxing at the age of 53.


He has been linked with a fight against a whole host of former and current boxers, as well as a handful of UFC fighters.

Evander Holyfield seems a likely opponent with The Real Deal also saying he will lace the gloves back up.

Holyfield is 2-0 up against Tyson including the infamous fight where Tyson bit a chunk out of his ear.

A trilogy fight for charity has been met with favour by both boxing legends.

But Tyson Fury, who was named after the American fighter, is incredibly another rumoured to be lined up for a dust-up.

He doesn’t go and fight really seriously a guy who is at the top of his game in his 30s. That’s not right and nobody should encourage it

This is something Arum, who promotes the 31-year-old Gypsy King out in the US, is not a fan of.

Speaking to Sky Sports the 88-year-old said: "If it’s anywhere near serious, I’m not going to be a participant in something that could be really deadly.

"Mike Tyson was a great fighter, he’s in his 50s now.

"He doesn’t go and fight really seriously a guy who is at the top of his game in his 30s. That’s not right and nobody should encourage it.

"If it’s a joke, they go and spar around, who cares? And particularly for charity, that’s great."

Fury – who wants to see Tyson take on Holyfield for a third time – previously told BT Sport: "I did get a phone call with a chance to fight Mike Tyson. I was like ‘what?’

"Yeah, I had a phone call saying ‘would you like to fight Mike Tyson in an exhibition fight?’ I was like ‘hell yeah!’"

The pair are big buddies as well, with Tyson recently calling Fury "the greatest".
