• Tyson Fury’s Boxing Promoter Not Happy About Fury Working A WWE Match
During a recent interview on TalkSports’ Sports Breakfast radio show, Frank Warren (Tyson Fury’s Boxing promoter) had the following to say about Fury working a match in WWE:
“What can you say? He went out there to watch it and the next minute he’s involved in it, it’s unbelievable.
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.
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 focused and keeping fit and well. It’s not like he’s a baby, he’s 30 years of age.”
