Heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury continues to call out UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez for some sort of fight. The boxer has been asking for months.
“I have challenged him before and would consider taking him on in a one-fight deal,” said Fury to England’s Daily Star. “I would beat him and then return to boxing. I’m definitely interested, but the money would have to be right.”
If Fury wants a UFC chance, UFC president Dana White said he must follow in the footsteps of James Toney. The boxing star was quickly submitted by Randy Couture in his only MMA bout.
“I am 100 percent up for a fight with him,” said Fury. “I’ve challenged him to a fight three times, but he’s a little boy who doesn’t want to fight and has said no to the fight live on television.”
Meanwhile, Velasquez has given little credence to Fury’s challenges thus far. Velasquez said if Fury wants a title shot, to join the roster and earn it.
Fury is undefeated in a boxing career that has spanned 21 fights.
