Tyson Fury interested in no holds barred clash with Jon Jones after Ngannou

Tyson Fury’s motivations for accepting the Francis Ngannou exhibition seem to be apparent – money. But the MMA crossover market might just have more to give, or so is the belief of Fury’s father John.

John Fury has set his sights on a potential bout between his son and Jon Jones, envisioning a battle that transcends boxing and enters the realm of MMA.

While Tyson Fury and Jon Jones had previously hinted at a showdown, logistical challenges seemed to have put this on hold.

As Tyson Fury gears up to face former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou in a boxing match on October 28, John Fury envisions a spectacular match-up with Jones following the Ngannou bout.

In a recent interview with Seconds Out, John Fury passionately expressed his desire to see Tyson take on Jon Jones in a no-holds-barred showdown.

He stated, “I don’t want to see a boxing match, I want to see both men in an all-in battle royale and let the best man stand up at the end.” John Fury envisions this fight as a way for Tyson to prove himself in various combat sports, beyond just boxing.

He continued with unwavering confidence in his son’s abilities, saying, “Tyson can do that. Tyson will kick your nuts up your back, he’ll elbow you and give you 20 stitches in your face. He’ll probably bite one of your ears off as well.” John Fury’s words underscore his belief that Tyson has the skills and tenacity to excel in mixed martial arts against a formidable opponent like Jon Jones.

Fury is playing off of an old Joe Rogan statement in which Rogan placed his confidence in Jones in any type of a no holds barred scenario.


“No one thinks that Tyson Fury beat Jon Jones in a fight. No one thinks that. Tyson doesn’t think that. You want to talk about who’s the baddest man on the planet? If Jon Jones and Tyson Fury are locked into a room, I’m pushing all of my chips on black.”

He added, “Tyson Fury is an amazing boxer. [But] He doesn’t have a f**king chance in hell of making it out of that room… Zero chance.”


Fury dismissed Rogan’s analysis, referring to him as a “little f***ing bald-headed midget.”

Fury boldly declared himself as the “baddest man on the planet” and confidently asserted that no man, including Jon Jones, could defeat him in a one-on-one encounter.

Demonstrating his characteristic bravado, Fury expressed his conviction that he would emerge victorious from any room, regardless of the challenge presented.

“I’m the baddest man on the planet,” Fury said on his Instagram story. “I heard Joe Rogan say something about me the other day, and I’ve been off all the social media so I didn’t reply to the little p*ssy. The little f***ing bald-headed midget.
