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.

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.

"Let's go: Evander Holyfield, Lennox Lewis, Mike Tyson -- all of those men in their 50s, my age, let's have a go."

'Iron' Mike, 54, is scheduled to make his sensational boxing return on 28th November in an eight-round exhibition fight with fellow legend Roy Jones Jr.

Tyson's dad added: "I'm John Fury, I'm a bum, done nothing in the professional ranks. But what you done then and what you are now is two different things.

"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."
