Tyson Fury jumped in on Mike Tyson’s interview and fans are obsessed with their reaction, despite John Furry calling the legend out.

Tyson Fury, 33-0 heavyweight champion is fighting Francis Ngannou on tonight (Saturday 28 October) in Saudi Arabia, and fans are absolutely buzzing!

In the interview, crashed by the man who is named after the former heavyweight champion, Mike Tyson was talking about whether there was any one who could be as great as Tyson Fury.

The interviewer said: “Is there anyone who can match Tyson Fury at this point?

Oleksandr Usyk is rumoured to be fighting him next, can he win?”

Responding, Mike said: “Hey listen he’s got to get through Francis first.”

Out of nowhere, Fury’s head pops into the camera view and he shouts: “Hey mum look, I’m on TV!”

The pair were visibly happy to see one another, despite Fury’s dad ‘Big John Fury’ recently calling Mike out.

"John Fury fears no man, no man on earth no matter what they've done, no matter what the accolades. John Fury only fears one person and he's not even of this world and that's God Almighty. Here I am, any man alive wants to fight John Fury, I'm ready to go, Mike Tyson what have you got to say to that my brother?"

But Tyson appeared to be more than happy to see his namesake, looking like he wanted a hug from the legend instead of a fight.

The interviewer directs a question at Fury: “Tell him what happens in the Usyk fight.”

Fury said: ‘Oh behave yourself, all these fights.

“Look how about me and Mike on the same camera together, I’m named after this guy!

“It makes him more of a legend!

“This man is a bonafide, living, alive, legend, and I’m named after him and I’m proud to be named after him.”

Apart from such a wholesome reaction, fans are also noticing something else that is quite hilarious.

That being, the height difference between the two!

One fan on Reddit said: “Fury is huge.”

Another said: “Mike was about 5 '10 in his prime, not sure if he's lost an inch or two. Fury is also closer to 6 '6-6' 7 than his billed 6 '9.”

A video of Mike hitting the pads when he was just 19 has resurfaced, and fans felt sorry for the guy taking the punches.

One person on X said: “Pad men don’t get the love they deserve.

“His hands and arms would be numb after a session like this with Tyson.

“These guys are awesome.

“And Tyson, well the guy was a machine.”

Another said: “This was a very scary version of mike.

“It’s the sheer FORCE his punches carry.”
