Tyson Fury responds to Drew McIntyre’s challenge

Tyson Fury has accepted Drew McIntyre’s challenge for a match after the new WWE Champion called out the Gypsy King.

The 34-year old beat Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 36 to claim the belt and become Britain’s first-ever WWE Champion.

McIntyre’s rise to the top has been remarkable after returning to the company 3 years after being released to then go on and win the Royal Rumble in January.

Last night’s victory at the biggest WWE show of the year capped off his journey and he wasted no time in calling out his next opponent.

Speaking to Ally McCoist on Talksport, the newly-crowned WWE Champion said: “The next thing I want to do is fight Chris Sutton.

“And Tyson Fury was talking trash, let him know I’ve won the belt and after I beat Sutton I’m coming for Fury.”

The Gypsy King, who was set to face Deontay Wilder in a trilogy fight in July being it was postponed, fired back straight away.

He posted the picture of him at WWE’s Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia after beating Braun Strowman on Instagram with the caption “@DMcIntyreWWE has call me out after his @WWE WrestleMania 36 victory.

“First I say congratulations and what a fantastic job. Secondly I accept his challenge, anytime any place, anywhere.????”

Fury also joined Talksport later in the morning, joining Laura Woods’ show to fire some trash talk back to the Scot – which you can listen to in the clip below.

Could we see Fury return the ring to battle McIntyre? We’d certainly like to see another run after his brief one last year!
