Tyson Fury vs Drew McIntyre: ‘Gypsy King’ hits Scotland

Tyson Fury has ramped up the promotion for a potential showdown with WWE superstar Drew McIntyre by travelling to Edinburgh to call out the Scot.

Fury has been in the Scottish capital this week, and released a video on Twitter of him walking the streets with a lone piper, claiming to be looking for McIntyre.

He said: “I’m here, this is a challenge video to Drew McIntyre. The Gypsy King is here in Edinburgh looking all over for you, Drew. Where are you, Drew?

“I’m looking all over Drew, all day, and I can’t see you! Hiding from me, Drew. Hiding! Come out and fight me like a proper man, like a highland man.

“So here I am in your own city and you’re nowhere to be seen, what a pity. Get your people to contact Nick Khan and let’s get this fight on.”

McIntyre later responded in kind on Twitter, saying: “I’m from Ayr. There’s a pandemic on. The moment I can come home for my world title tour, we’ll talk in person.

“You’re still a big stiff idiot. Stop using filters you weirdo. Do you want me to start paying rent? It’s unfair I live in your head for free.”

McIntyre made history earlier in 2020 when he defeated Brock Lesnar to take the WWE Championship title – becoming the first Briton ever to do so.

Fury meanwhile has other business upcoming in the shape of a trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder. They are currently scheduled to meet on Saturday December 19 if the COVID-19 pandemic subsides enough to allow it. Las Vegas is the preferred venue.

If Fury is victorious against Wilder, he is then likely to face huge domestic rival Anthony Joshua in a blockbuster to unify the world heavyweight titles.

Fury currently holds the WBC, Ring magazine and lineal titles while Joshua is the IBF, WBA and WBO champion.
