Tyson Fury: 'WWE Has Taken My Mind Off Boxing Completely'

"I might get a life-threatening injury or whatever so yeah, Deontay Wilder may be right about his prediction".

Tyson Fury is slated to take on Braun Strowman at WWE Crown Jewel. Who knows? It depends how much I like it on the night.

Wilder and Fury fought to a draw a year ago.

When asked to expand on what he needs to reassess Fury added: "Everything A-Z".

"He screams "bomb squad" a lot and pretends to have a personality, but really he doesn't and there is no depth to him".

"He has got no substance. I am a trash talker, but sometimes I struggle to put together what he is talking about".

A rematch with Deontay Wilder is pencilled in for February 22 but Fury has cast doubt on any return to the ring by insisting he is not thinking about the WBC heavyweight champion.

"But it is not just about me".

"He should come through, but Luis Ortiz is a risky customer and is not to be overlooked or underestimated".

"For four or five rounds he is one of the most unsafe fighters in the world and he is a 6ft 4 southpaw who can punch hard".

Fury recently spoke with telegraph.co.uk for a new interview where he talked about his WWE training as well as whether he'll do more matches with the company.

However, Fury says that he comes from different stock to anyone who has considered this transition before. I am just a fighter and that's it.

"I have not had a change of heart at all". "Even more bigger than this".

Fury is expected to face Deontay Wilder in February of next year should the "Bronze Bomber" emerge unscathed from a unsafe rematch with Luis Ortiz in late November but, ahead of his upcoming first foray into the world of professional wrestling with WWE, the "Gypsy King" says that a mixed martial arts contest could be in his future. So, can't wait! Gonna take him up on the offer.

Professional wrestling isn't the only sport Tyson Fury plans on crossing over into this year.
