It’s no secret whose name Tyson Fury’s father, John Fury, used to name his son, Tyson Fury.
John Fury named Tyson Fury after the legendary American Heavyweight who became the most feared boxer ever.
To this day, there is no other boxer who even got to his level when he was at his peak. All the more reason for Tyson Fury to be disappointed that one of his idols is currently training his next opponent.
Ever since Francis Ngannou’s camp started, ‘Iron Mike’ has been coaching him and even became part of the trash talking against the British boxer leading up to the event in Saudi Arabia.
Spanish outlet, Marca reports: “We are all wondering how Tyson Fury feels about this and he just revealed it during a recent interview.”
It happened during a recent exchange with Sky Sports, Tyson Fury was asked how he felt about Mike Tyson coaching Francis Ngannou ahead of their mega Heavyweight fight.
This is what Fury said: “I think that it’s sad, actually. The man that I am named after, a legend, has to go against me and then come out as a loser, having lost to a man who was named after him.
“I think that it’s sad and I think that he should be in my corner, not the opposing corner, but business is business and I understand that it’s strictly business.
“No matter what he teaches this fella [Ngannou], no matter how much boxing training he does, everyone has got a plan until they get punched in the face and I’m not sure who said that, but that is true.
“They’ve all got a plan until they get smacked in the mouth.”
