WWE and boxing has had crossovers for years. From Muhammad Ali, to Mike Tyson, to Floyd Mayweather Jr., to Tyson Fury, some of boxing’s biggest stars have stepped foot inside the WWE ring.
Speaking of Fury, the undefeated boxer had his final fight the other day. Fury retained his WBC heavyweight title against Dillian Whyte in front of a sold-out crowd at Wembley Stadium last night.
The Gypsy King commented on a possible WWE appearance during the post-fight scrum. Fury said he’ll be in talks with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon for a possible appearance the company’s SummerSlam PPV event.
“Don’t rule me out of fighting there. You might see me at SummerSlam coming up too. I got to speak to Vince [McMahon] and the boys. I know Drew McIntyre has been saying a lot of things about me. I’d love to be at Cardiff! I enjoyed it last time in Saudi Arabia, it was fantastic. We’re going to be in contact and see if we can make SummerSlam a reality.”
WWE will be returning to the UK in 30 years this September. The sports and entertainment giant will be hosting a live event on Saturday, September 3, 2022, at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. We’ll have to wait and see if Fury shows up in Cardiff.
