Tyson Fury Has Offer To Train With Conor McGregor But Dismisses UFC Switch
Tyson Fury says he has no plans to move from the ring to the octagon and go against 'some UFC fighters for peanuts,' despite an offer to train with Conor McGregor.
However despite training with the Liverpool fighter, and having an offer to train with Conor McGregor, the Gypsy King isn't going to be getting into the octagon for a fight any time soon. Speaking to talkSPORT, Fury said, "I've not spoken to Dana White. To be honest with you, I've got bigger fish to fry than going in an octagon at the moment and fighting some UFC fighters for peanuts.
"I'm fighting the biggest fights in the world. World boxing is the biggest fights.
"When I get my boxing career finished, I'm gonna go over there and set about all those UFC fighters."
On training will Till and potentially McGregor, the former WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight champion added, "I'm doing a bit of training with Darren Till in Liverpool. He's a great guy and a fantastic mentor.
"I've also got an offer from Conor McGregor to go to Ireland and work out.
"He's one of the world's biggest entertainers. It goes beyond winning or losing at a certain level and he's one of the, if not the biggest draw in the world of combat sports now. So he's done fantastic in his career."
UFC president Dana White doesn't think Fury would do well in MMA saying, "I don't think it ends well for him," but the Manchester born boxer hit back, saying, "I'd smash him for free, so I'm not bothered. Everyone's got their opinions. I have no interest really. I don't care."
After his stint in WWE the 31-year-old can now turn his attention back to boxing and the WBC heavyweight title he will already thinks should be his.
Fury's next fight should be a rematch with Deontay Wilder on February 22nd next year. Before then the Bronze Bomber must get through another rematch with Luis Ortiz on November 23rd.
