Tyson Fury's promoter isn't exactly thrilled over the fact that the boxer is now involved with WWE.
Fury is now set for a Crown Jewel match with Braun Strowman after getting into a confrontation with the towering star during SmackDown's FOX Premiere two Fridays ago and following that up with an appearance on last week's Monday Night Raw.
Frank Warren, who works as a promoter for the British boxer, is not happy with the status quo. Warren was a guest on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast and revealed that he had no idea Fury was going to get involved with the wrestling promotion.
The promoter is concerned about Fury possibly injuring himself ahead of his major fight with Deontay Wilder early next year.
"What can you say? He went out there to watch it and the next minute he’s involved in it, it’s unbelievable," Warred said. "But that’s Tyson. He’s supposed to be taking a rest and taking it easy, but he’s decided that he wants to do this and he’s going to do i
"No he didn’t [discuss it with me]. He’s done it and we’ve discussed it afterward. I’d be a liar if I said I was pleased with it, I’d prefer him not to do it but he’s doing it.
"Listen, I’ve seen WWE fighters get cuts, it’s the nature of contact sports. It could happen but I hope it doesn’t. I’d prefer he didn’t do it because it could jeopardize his boxing career. But he’s doing it and he’s his own man. In some ways, I suppose it’s keeping him focused and keeping fit and well. It’s not like he’s a baby, he’s 30 years of age."
Frank's Gotta Roll With The Program
WWE looks to be going down a familiar path nowadays, bringing in talent from other disciplines such as MMA.
They completed the huge signing of Ronda Rousey last year and Cain Velasquez is now on the roster following his own appearance on the SmackDown premiere. Both stars will be competing at Crown Jewel in what will be a huge first test.
Where Velasquez is concerned, there's already a title opportunity available as he will be fighting Brock Lesnar for the title of WWE Champion at the show on October 31.
