Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson remains one of the most well-known pro wrestlers to have ever stepped foot inside the squared circle. The Rock has done it all when it comes to being a pro wrestler and most of the things you can do in Hollywood too. Tyson Fury also wants to face The Rock in an exhibition match.
On the other hand, WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury is considered one of the best professional boxers in the world and there is a good reason for that. He retired after defeating Dillian Whyte in the sixth round earlier this year. While he has remained retired since then, Fury is open to exhibition matches from time to time.
While speaking with Good Morning Britain, Tyson Fury stated that he is interested in the idea of putting up a show for fans. He went on to say that he wants to duke it out with The Rock in an exhibition match.
“This is not professional boxing, this is pure entertainment, that’s all it is, nothing more, nothing less. The difference is, the exhibition you’re not there to win or lose, you’re there to put on a show for fans. You can fight old-timers, famous people, whoever you want; I’m looking to fight Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis, Frank Bruno, or Dwayne Johnson, The Rock.
Tyson Fury also wants to square off against Drew McIntyre inside a WWE ring in the future. We’ll have to see whether The Rock will be interested in squaring off against Tyson Fury or not.
