This week at Crown Jewel, Tyson Fury will be going one-on-one with Braun Strowman. The match is not only his first inside a WWE ring, but his first in any wrestling ring.
Ahead of the match in Saudi Arabia, the undefeated boxer sat down with talkSPORT’s Alex McCarthy.
Speaking to McCarthy, Fury addresses those who claim that wrestling is fake. In the process, Fury revealed that he is currently dealing with a whole host of injuries.
Tyson Fury tells me that, in actual fact, wrestling is not fake.

Last week, WWE shot an angle at the Performance Center where Fury was jumped by Braun Strowman. As a result, Fury was seen clearly favouring his ankle.
It is unclear whether Fury had already injured his ankle, causing WWE to shoot the angle so Fury can appear worse-for-wear in the bout.
Fury is believed to be fine, so don’t expect him to pull out of the big match prior to Thursday.
