Tyson Fury hints this will not be his only appearance in the WWE as he mentions possible fights against Cain Velasquez and Brock Lesnar

TYSON FURY has said that his fight with Braun Strowman may not be his only bout in the WWE - hinting that he could go up against the likes of Brock Lesnar and Cain Velasquez in the future.

Fury will take on Strowman on October 31 as the undefeated heavyweight steps over to the wrestling world.

The Gypsy King is due to fight Deontay Wilder on February 22 in a hotly anticipated rematch.

But the 31-year-old hasn't ruled out more appearances in the WWE.

He said: “This could be the first of many, depends on how we get along and how much damage I take on October 31.

“Who knows, after Braun Strowman, who knows what lies beneath, maybe Cain Velasquez, maybe Brock Lesnar - who knows."

Speaking of his own wrestling experience, Fury revealed that he has been wrestling his supersized brother all his life.

“Me and my brother, we always used to wrestle each other, he’s 6ft 6in and 400 pounds.

“We’ve done it all our lives, but not like on this level, just like brotherly wrestling type thing, four or five of us, plenty of times."

Many believe that Fury is taking a huge gamble by fighting Strowman just 18 days after having stitches removed from his eye.

The injury was sustained in Fury's gruelling win over Otto Wallin last month - with doctors urging him not to return to physical activity until November at the earliest.

And even his promoter Frank Warren seems to be in the dark over Fury's dabble with the WWE.

He said: "I'm still awaiting the call from Tyson to tell me he's finished with this WWE stuff."

Fury and Strowman will do battle at Crown Jewel in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on October 31 - on a card that also includes former UFC star Cain Velasquez making his WWE debut against his old MMA rival Brock Lesnar.

Velasquez, 37, actually beat Lesnar in the Octagon at UFC 121 back in 2010 to become UFC Heavyweight Champion of the World.

And now they fight with the WWE World Championship on the line.
