Tyson Fury’s Dad John Calls Out THREE Heavyweight Legends For A Boxing Super-Fight

John Fury has sent a clear message to boxing legends Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield that he would be ready to fight any one of the trio inside the squared circle.

The 56-year-old former bare-knuckle fighter has been training with son Tyson Fury as the Brit superstar continues to prepare for his third fight with Deontay Wilder.

'Gypsy' John has posted clips of him working the punching bag on Instagram as his rivalry with former bodybuilder Micky Theo continues to intensify.

However, Tyson's dad wasted no time in laying down a challenge for 'Iron' Mike, Lewis or Holyfield to face him in a fight.

The ex-professional boxer said: "I'm confident I'd beat any man, 50-plus, on the planet. Here I am, I'm ready, fit, been training, I feel good -- let's get it on.

"Now I'm fit, let's talk about some proper fighting men that have had fighting experience.

"I believe the training I've put in with my son and what's happened to my son and where he is now has rubbed off on me.

"I will give any man on this globe a good fight so let's get it on."
