YOU just can’t get away from Tyson Fury at the moment.

If he isn’t in the boxing ring beating overmatched opponents in defence of his ‘lineal heavyweight title’, he can be found recording Christmas songs in the booth with Robbie Williams or appearing in the WWE with Braun Strowman.

It’s called making money, milking it, striking while the iron’s hot, and Fury, thanks to a deal with ESPN and a larger-than-life personality, is as hot as he has ever been right now, keen to add strings to his bow, and zeroes to his bank account.
