Following a highly publicized confrontation with Strowman on the FOX premiere of Friday Night Smack Down, the always unpredictable Fury was offered an open mic during an appearance on Monday Night Raw. "It's a fantastic opportunity for me", Fury said at a news conference in Las Vegas, Nevada on Friday.
Cain Velasquez and Brock Lesnar are set for a rematch more than nine years after the pair fought in the UFC cage, except this time they'll meet in the WWE ring. Fury said he is a life-long fan of WWE and he plans to remain undefeated against Strowman. Fury and Strowman each spoke and then had a face-to-face. But me being the undefeated lineal heavyweight boxing champion, I fear no man. I'm undefeated in 30 professional contests, and when I go Saudi Arabia to fight Braun Strowman I'm still going to be undefeated, because I'm going to knock Braun Strowman out. "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". Velasquez and Fury have already appeared as part of storylines on WWE television to drive interest in these matches. He's meeting a guy who has the best hands in boxing.
Are you looking forward to Lesnar vs. Velasquez at Crown Jewel? I haven't seen them excited over something like this in a while.
