Following his successful win over Braun Strowman in his very first professional WWE appearance on Thursday night , Heavyweight Tyson Fury has revealed he could stage his upcoming 2020 fight with Deontay Wilder in Saudi Arabia.
Lineal Heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury, who got new fans in the Arab world after wearing native Arabian thobe and keffiyeh headdress to enter the ring in the wrestling match on Thursday night, is scheduled to fight Wilder on February 22 – though it has yet to be officially announced – and the Brit has hinted that it might not be in the United States this time around.
Fury reportedly made $15m from engaging in the WWE fight in Saudi Arabia, and with Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz Jr set to command $40m from their rematch in December in Saudi Arabia, Fury recognizes that the Middle East is becoming a sporting capital .
“Hopefully this is the first time of many times that the Gypsy King comes to Saudi Arabia,’ Fury told reporters at a press event in Riyadh.
“Who knows, next year, I may even fight Deontay Wilder back here in Saudi Arabia. It’s becoming a sporting hub capital of the world.’
He added: ‘I’m very excited to be here
