TYSON FURY will fulfil a lifelong dream when he swaps boxing for professional wrestling and fights Braun Strowman at the Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia.

The heavyweight appeared at a Las Vegas press conference on Friday where he confirmed he would fight on the October 31 pay-per-view card at the end of a week which started with Fury and Strowman brawling at Monday Night Raw.

They had previously clashed at SmackDown and announcing the fight, WWE executive vice president Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque said: “Braun Strowman will step into the ring with the man who is undefeated in 30 fights, the 6ft 9in Gypsy King, Tyson Fury.
