Tyson also confirmed to Gibbs that he hasn’t ruled out a return to the ring, revealing Gypsy King Tyson Fury as his desired opponent.
‘Hell yeah. Yeah. The last fight (with Jones Jr.), I broke all the records. When I was champ they were my records. I wanna spar with Tyson Fury. He told me if I keep doing it up, he’ll give me an exhibition,’ Tyson said.
Fury has to head to Las Vegas to defend his title for the first time against Deontay Wilder in their trilogy clash on Saturday, while an all-British undisputed fight with Anthony Joshua could still be on the cards should Joshua win his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk.
The Gypsy King has also promised a December bout to Dillian Whyte should The Body Snatcher prevail against Swede Otto Wallin on October 30.
Tyson’s exhibition with the Irishman will seemingly depend on Fury squeezing it into his jam-packed schedule.
