And it appears Tyson isn’t the only Fury interested in jumping into the WWE ring.

Son Prince would rather be a WWE wrestler than a boxer, according to his dad.

Fury said: “Everyone has their own dreams but as far as I know Prince wants to be a WWE wrestler and there is nothing I can say to tell him different.

“Thankfully I know a couple of guys who can make it happen for him, I have done alright out of of it , I am undefeated.”

Fury also hinted that he’ll be making a return to a WWE ring at some point in the near future.

He continued: “I am sure I will be making another entrance in the WWE sometime soon, probably.”

Fury paid tribute to WWE legend The Undertaker by wearing his hat at Friday’s weigh-in ahead of his trilogy fight against rival Deontay Wilder on Saturday.

The Deadman wished Fury good luck in a personal video and says he has total confidence in the Brit to defeat Wilder.

The Undertaker also asked Fury to stand over Wilder when he’s down and say his signature catchphrase ‘Rest In Peace’.

He said: “I just wanted to reach out and wish you good luck on tomorrow night’s fight.

“Not that you need it, you’ve already smashed this guy really properly, and I have no doubt that you’re gonna do it again.

“I just wanted you to know, I’m gonna be watching and I wanna see you drop this guy one more time.

“You smash this guy and when you’re looking over him, just for me, look over him and say, ‘Rest In Peace.’”

Fury, inspired by the 56-year-old’s message, responded with a video of his own.

He replied: “‘This one’s for The Undertaker. I’m here today in your hat, sir.

“I’m gonna smash him and I’m gonna say ‘Rest In Peace!’”
