Tyson Fury: Braun Strowman WWE match confirmed for Saudi Arabia


Former unified world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury will compete against Braun Strowman at a WWE event in Saudi Arabia on 31 October.

Fury, 31, has appeared twice on WWE in recent weeks and has already started a feud with Strowman.

Speaking at the announcement of their bout, Fury said: “I fear no man. I am going to knock Strowman out.”

Strowman, whose real name is Adam Scherr, said: “Tyson heed my warning. In the WWE, we don’t wear gloves.”

He added: “You are climbing into my world. You are a household name and when these hands put you down for good, the whole world will remember who the monster among men Braun Strowman is.”

Fury said he was “honoured” to compete in the WWE and described himself as “a lifelong fan” of the sports entertainment organisation.

WWE champion Brock Lesnar – a former UFC heavyweight champion – will also face UFC fighter Cain Velasquez at the event, which has been named Crown Jewel.

The Saudi Arabia matches were confirmed by wrestler and WWE executive Triple H, who insisted the night would “bring the worlds of UFC, boxing and WWE together in a way that only the WWE can”.
