Tyson Fury’s promoter Frank Warren recently explained why he didn’t want his client to risk his health working in WWE on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.
“What can you say? He went out there to watch it and the next minute he’s involved in it, it’s unbelievable,” Warren said h/t TalkSport.com. “But that’s Tyson. He’s supposed to be taking a rest and taking it easy, but he’s decided that he wants to do this and he’s going to do it… No he didn’t [discuss it with me]. He’s done it and we’ve discussed it afterwards. I’d be a liar if I said I was pleased with it, I’d prefer him not to do it but he’s doing it.”
“Listen, I’ve seen WWE fighters get cuts, it’s the nature of contact sports. It could happen but I hope it doesn’t. I’d prefer he didn’t do it because it could jeopardize his boxing career. But he’s doing it and he’s his own man. In some ways I suppose it’s keeping him focussed and keeping fit and well. It’s not like he’s a baby, he’s 30 years of age.”
As reported several times here at WrestlePages.com, Fury will do his first WWE match at Crown Jewel later this month in Saudi Arabia against Braun Strowman. He hasn’t been taking it easy but training for the bout at the WWE Performance Center over the last several weeks.
