Fury was always considered a perfect fit in the WWE but his boxing commitments had kept him away from wrestling. Fury said only recently he received this particular opportunity to fight at the WWE.
Fury’s son Prince is a big WWE fan and one of his favorite wrestlers is Braun Strowman. The 31-year-old UK-born added that by competing in WWE against Strowman, he would surely make his kids happy.
Fury and Cain Velasquez are set to make their WWE debut at the upcoming Crown Jewel pay-per-view. Fury, in particular, is expected to perform well. He has claimed he is good at boxing and once a person is good at it, he can do any sport. The “Gypsy King” has also admitted that he will face his upcoming Crown Jewel match against Strowman with a positive “Yes, I can” attitude.
The WWE company has already announced that Fury vs Strowman showdown will be one of the marquee matchups at the Crown Jewel event, set to take place in Saudia Arabia on Oct. 31.
At a launch event recently, Fury said,” I’ve been training at the WWE facility in Orlando. I was supposed to be resting while the eye mended but I’m excited about 385lb of Braun coming at me. Me against Wilder is the biggest fight in boxing but I’m not thinking about that now. I’m just enjoying my life and concentrating on WWE.”
It has also been reported that Fury could earn as much as the $50 million from two contracted rematches with Wilder. The first fight is scheduled for February in Las Vegas and the second one next summer at the Wembley Stadium.
