WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury is, without doubt, one of the greatest boxers of all time. He might be a boxer by trade, but he has shown interest in pro wrestling as of late. WWE SmackDown’s newest talent has a game plan to wrestle with Fury if he ever finds his way into a wrestling ring again.
Gunther spoke with Cultaholic Wrestling recently and discussed about his game plan to wrestle with Tyson Fury. The boxing star has recently teased he might return to WWE, with that in consideration Gunther is ready to fight him.
“To be honest, it seems like from what you see, he’s been around WWE,” he said. “And from what you hear, it seems to be like a cool guy and a pretty laid-back person. He’s one of the best of all time in his sport. I’m not a big boxing fan, but Ludwig is into boxing, he boxed himself in his youth. Sometimes I talk to him about it, and then I pick things up.
“Actually, we watched the fight in the locker room the other day, massive crowd, really crazy. It’s great because he’s so unorthodox I think, he doesn’t look like the best athlete in the world, but in his sport, he is. If I will get the chance to wrestle him in WWE, I will definitely be very open to that.”
Fury has an infamously long reach and with that in mind, the former NXT UK Champion already has a plan to stay out of his range.
“It might be tricky with the chops though, he’s got a long reach, he’s got long arms himself,” Gunther pointed out. “I should not try to get that close. I might need to go to the legs more than that.”
Tyson Fury stands more than 2 meters tall, on the other hand, Gunther is also fairly tall at 1.93m. If the two end up wrestling in near future, it will be a match to remember.
