Tyson Fury has taken a break from the hardship of camp life to spend some time with heavyweight boxing icon Mike Tyson.

But the self-styled Gypsy King flew over to Los Angeles on Friday to spend the day with Tyson on the set of Joe Rogan’s podcast.

Tyson and Fury both posed together for pictures before the Manchester giant uploaded them on to his social media accounts with the caption: ‘AMERICAN DREAM.’
Former two-time heavyweight champion Tyson also praised his namesake for showing a granite-like jaw in his dramatic draw with Deontay Wilder back in December.
The 53-year-old said on the Joe Rogan podcast: ‘I didn’t watch it [Wilder vs Fury], I was in the air flying when they were fighting.

‘I saw the highlights. How incredible is Tyson’s jaw?’
Fury was dropped twice during last year’s epic encounter and somehow clambered back to his feet after being heavily dropped in the final round.
The Brit is expected to face Wilder in a blockbuster rematch in the early part of next year, although no deal has officially been struck.
Fury will first face Wallin at the T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas next month while WBC champion Wilder defends his title in a rematch against Luis Ortiz.
