Fighter dubbed 'toughest white guy on the planet' by Mike Tyson calls out John Fury for Saudi clash

John Fury, the father of Tyson Fury, has been called out by a man once called the ‘toughest white guy on the planet’ by boxing icon Mike Tyson.

Big John has become a celebrity in his own right after being a part of Tyson’s journey to becoming WBC heavyweight champion.

Fury was a boxer in his own right, with 13 professional fights to his name.

He lost his debut in 1987 before going on an impressive seven-fight unbeaten streak.

Once ranked third in the country, he suffered knockout defeats to former WBO champion Henry Akinwande and Steve Garber and retired with an 8-4-1 record.

All in all, it’s a decent career, even if he never made it to the world rankings.

He managed to make £4000 from boxing – although that pales in comparison to his £10,000 from bare-knuckle boxing.

Fury doesn’t regret anything about his career, especially after seeing Tyson go unbeaten.

However, the 59-year-old has been offered one last shot at glory in the ring from an unlikely source.

Joe Egan, who previously trained with ‘Iron Mike’ before being shot twice outside his own pub, has issued a strong message to Fury.

Egan believes the current fad of YouTuber boxing needs to end and wants to show ‘Saudi Arabian royals’ what a real fight looks like.

In a callout video uploaded to YouTube earlier this week, the Irishman said: “Hello everyone. I have one last hurrah in me. I haven’t fought in over 20 years.

“John Fury is my friend and he is a good fighting man, same as myself, a good fighting man and I think the two of us would have a great boxing match.

“Out in Saudi let’s show them YouTubers and them Saudi royals how two old warriors can perform.”

Egan managed to become close friends with Tyson after being the only man to last three minutes in the ring with the ‘Baddest Man on the Planet’ during a sparring session.

Three other men were beaten and a teenage Egan stood his ground.

He told The Sun in November: “If you are going to get battered you might as well get battered by the best.

I got battered by Mike Tyson and I got battered by Lennox Lewis when I fought him in 1985.

“It was a privilege to share the ring with both of them and it is an honour to say Mike Tyson has been my close friend for 40 years now. He visited my mother at home in Ireland four times.”
