WBC Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and WWE champion Drew McIntyre have been hinting at a cross-promotional matchup for a while now.
Fury is slated to defend his boxing title against Deontay Wilder by the end of this year. That said, a matchup against Drew McIntyre might not be possible now. However, Fury hasn’t ruled out the possibility, and neither did Drew McIntyre.
Moreover, WWE Moghul Triple H believes that the viable matchup can break several records if brought to fruition.
Triple H is eyeing Tyson Fury vs Drew McIntyre
Tyson Fury made his WWE debut at Crown Jewel 2019 and took on a strong opponent in Braun Strowman. ‘The Gypsy King’ remained undefeated in WWE too, as he vanquished Strowman in Saudi Arabia.
He has been rumored to reappear in WWE since then. While the speculations are steadily taking a turn, Triple H voiced his opinion on the rumored matchup against McIntyre. Speaking with PA news agency, the former WWE champion said:
“We could make Drew McIntyre vs.Tyson Fury work out, Tyson has got my number — we will make a call.”
Triple H is ready to materialize the fight, and it is Fury’s turn to give the green signal. Being a WWE administrative, Triple H believes that he can sell out massive stadiums with a fascinating event, like Fury vs McIntyre.
“If you are able to make a super-fight, a mega-fight like a WWE champion Drew McIntyre, like a world champion in Tyson Fury in boxing, I think we sell out massive stadiums, do record global box office business and that is what is all about – so my phone is on,” said Triple H.
However, Fury has a lot of plans chalked up for his boxing career. Even after the Wilder fight, ‘The Gypsy King’ might have to face several other names on his way to greatness.
If Fury loses his WBC title against Wilder, he might opt for another run in WWE. That said, it won’t be an easy job for Deontay Wilder to defeat ‘The Gypsy King’. The ‘Bronze Bomber’ has failed to conquer Fury twice, losing the second fight against him via a stoppage.
After the Deontay Wilder trilogy, Fury has also been touted to face Anthony Joshua for a heavyweight title unification fight.
