Tyson Fury Set To Appear In EA Sports UFC 4 Game
According to Forbes, the WBC world heavyweight champion has signed a deal with EA Sports that will see him become a playable character in the latest game in their combat sports franchise.
With his incredible comeback story and conquering of Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas earlier this year, Fury has become one of the biggest sports stars on the planet.
And the undefeated fighter is set to become the second boxer to appear in a UFC game - following in the footsteps of the youngest ever world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson - the legend who he is named after.
Tyson was on the roster on EA Sports UFC 2, while gamers could play with martial arts legend Bruce Lee inside the Octagon on EA Sports UFC 3.
Fans will get a glimpse of what Fury is capable of if he shifted from one combat sport to another, though in real life he has beefed with UFC heavyweight stars Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou.
He also trained in the Octagon with UFC middleweight Darren Till, who believes it's likely that he will have an MMA fight in the future.

UFC president Dana White had previously doubted Fury's ability to come into his world but shared a video of him on the pads with Till and said he'd love to have him in his company.
"Right now I see him as the best in the world or one of the best in the world," White said.
"He'll play out the fights with all the other guys right now... I'd love to have him over here to fight...I'll see how it all plays out. But I do like him."
Fury's tune has changed of late, however. The 31-0 boxer says he has spoken to White about doing something big in the future but feels he's got plenty more to achieve in the squared circle first - with several new opponents in mind.
"I've had plenty of conversations with Dana White about potentially having a fight with one of the guys," Fury told iFL TV.
"But, at the minute, I don't need to fight UFC guys.
"I need to clear up some of my own stuff. There's a few guys that need to be fought in this era. I need to fight Wilder again. I've got to fight Joshua. I need to fight Dillian Whyte.
"I'll fight anyone, and there's a lot coming up too like Joe Joyce, Daniel Dubois and Tony Yoka. A lot of fresh meat to beat on. There's even fights like Luis Ortiz, whoever."
