Tyson Fury has told Express Sport his children thought he was going to be “beaten up” by Braun Strowman.

The Gypsy King has signed the huge deal to face Strowman at Crown Jewel on October 31.

Very quickly. I got the phone call to say would you like to be involved in a WWE fight, I said yes,” Fury told Express Sport.

“It was a Wednesday night at 7pm and I was on a plane the next day to LA at 6am in the morning. I have always wanted to be involved and always wanted to be a fan of it. My son is a massive fan so it was a no-brainer for me.”
