Tyson Fury's dad has released a foul-mouthed - and frankly, a bit strange - video in which he calls out Mike Tyson for a boxing match. Big John Fury vs Iron Mike? We'd all like to see that get off the ground, right? Well, the elder Fury certainly does. Check out this video:

It starts as a video on social media addressed to Mick Theo - a bodybuilder who John has already agreed to fight - but then his attention quickly turns to the former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.

Tyson - Mike, that is - recently announced that he's looking to get back into the ring at the tender age of just 53 years old.

He's looking to get involved in some four-round bouts, and from the videos that have emerged of him training, he still looks in pretty good shape.

John Fury is no slouch when it comes to fitness, though. Oh, and he's absolutely massive, too.

Yep, don't fancy that.

Addressing Theo, John rants: "Forget you, bum, I'm looking at Mike Tyson,

"Mike's making a comeback; I don't value my life at 50p but let me tell you something, Mike Tyson is worth doing charity with.

"He's a proper king of a champion, a proper man tried and tested, not some doorman who I used to practice on as a 14-year-old boy. If I didn't knock out four or five a night when I was 15, I was disappointed.

"I'll fight Mike Tyson, he's making a comeback. I know he mentions my boy's name every five minutes, but here I am, John Fury is hiding from no man, not even the king of the old men, Mike Tyson.

"I will fight Mike Tyson. I will not be denied, I will die in a fight."

Well, being prepared to die in the fight is probably a useful characteristic for most people willing to fight Mike Tyson, to be fair.

However, most wouldn't fancy getting beyond the ropes with John Fury, either.

Speaking on an Instagram Live after announcing his comeback, Tyson said: "I've been hitting the mitts for the last week.

"That's been tough, my body is really jacked up and really sore from hitting the mitts.

"I've been working out, I've been trying to get in the ring, I think I'm going to box some exhibitions and get in shape."

Iron Mike is back in training.

"I want to go to the gym and get in shape to be able to box three or four-round exhibitions for some charities and stuff.

"Some charity exhibitions, make some money, help some homeless and drug-affected motherf***er like me."

Even at 53, there's still a lot of folks who wouldn't fancy that particular challenge.
