Tyson Fury amazed by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s ‘ripped’ body at 48 as he pays ‘respect’ to WWE legend

TYSON FURY has paid tribute to WWE legend The Rock's incredible 'shape'.

The heavyweight boxing champion uploaded a photo of the award-winning actor, real name Dwayne Johnson, onto Twitter.


Alongside it Fury wrote: "What a shape on a man especially for his age. Respect. Ripped."

He then tagged in the 48-year-old.

Johnson is seen facing the camera in the gym, with his muscles and veins bulging after a workout.

He is continuing his gruelling workouts ahead of his next film in which he reprises his role of Black Adam.

‘The Rock’ is also set to produce and star in a movie biopic about pro-wrestler turned MMA and UFC fighter Mark Kerr.

He revealed the news in a surprise press conference at UFC 244 at Madison Square Garden in New York on Friday.

He said:  “Mark Kerr’s story is such an incredible story.

“Like all of us, and like a lot of these fighters, he battled these demons — these demons of addiction, these demons of mental health, these demons of getting out and the pressure of fighting in front of 50,000 people and what that does to somebody.

“Here’s a guy who has gone through it all, hit rock bottom, but the best part about Mark Kerr is that, like all of us in this room and all these fighters, these warriors, is that everyday, we get up and we want to do a little bit better tomorrow than we did today.”

Mike Kerr was considered to be the best fighter in the world during his MMA career from 1997 – 2009, as well as being a two-time UFC heavyweight champion.

Fury, meanwhile, is heavily into his fitness after an incredible 10-stone weight loss that got him back to the pinnacle of boxing.

The 32-year-old held daily workouts through the first lockdown of 2020, and regularly shares footage of his gym work and running on social media.

He also released a book late last year called The Furious Method to give tips on how to transform the body with exercise and diet.

The Gypsy King is now in negotiations for a mouthwatering undisputed clash against fellow Brit Anthony Joshua this year.
