Tyson Fury vs Braun Strowman WWE Fight Confirmed For Saudi Arabia

Tyson Fury will make his WWE debut in Saudi Arabia against Braun Strowman on Halloween.

The former heavyweight world boxing champion made a ringside appearance at Smackdown last Friday alongside his family.

He was confronted by Strowman and then offered the mic on Monday Night Raw three days later.

Fury then brawled with the wrestler after his plea for an apology fell on deaf ears.

The pair will now clash on October 31 in order to settle their beef as Fury prepares for his rematch with Deontay Wilder next February.

“How honoured I am to be here and be involved in such a massive event in Saudi Arabia. It’s a fantastic opportunity for me," Fury said.

“Something I’ve dreamed of as a lifelong WWE fan.

“I just want to say how excited I am to be fighting the monster among men, Braun Strowman.

“After seeing him I really know why he’s got the nickname the monster among men.

“But me being the undefeated lineal heavyweight boxing champion, I fear no man.

The pair will face off later this month
“I’m undefeated in 30 professional contests. When I go to Saudi Arabia to fight Braun Strowman I’m still going to be undefeated, because I’m going to knock Braun Strowman out.

“He talks about how good his hands are, but he’s messing with the man with the best hands in boxing. He don’t want none of them hands, let me tell you that.”

Strowman added: "Tyson Fury is a bad dude, especially when you take into consideration what he has overcome.

"But in WWE, we don't wear gloves, you are coming into my world."

The Crown Jewel event will be shown on the FOX TV channel which will also broadcast Fury's second instalment with Wilder.

The desert show will also feature Cain Velasquez and Brock Lesnar who will renew their rivalry nine years after Velasquez KO'd Lesnar at UFC 121.

Velasquez dethroned Lesnar as the UFC's heavyweight champion and confronted his old foe last Friday.

On Fury's fight, legendary boxing promoter Bob Arum said: "Tyson Fury, the Gypsy King, he’s not only a great fighter, he reminds me of Muhammad Ali, George Foreman.

"He entertains in the ring and he is a tremendous personality.

"He is a real showman, and that’s why people love him. They know that he fights with his heart on his sleeve.

"And even though he had a big cut over his eye and blood streaming down his face, so he can’t really see his opponent, he carries on to victory."
