Tyson Fury took in a WWE pay-per-view with his son last night – just hours after confirming his fight with Anthony Joshua will take place this Summer.
The heavyweight champion took his son Prince to the WWE's private set where they record shows during the pandemic to watch the 'Wrestlemania Backlash' pay-per-view last night.
Spectators can only attend these events virtually through a digital screen set up known as the WWE 'Thunderdome' due to covid protocols, but Fury managed to get into the building to watch the show in the flesh.
And he took to Instagram to share a picture of father and son spending some time with legendary wrestler Rey Mysterio Jr backstage at the big event, where Mysterio and his own son Dominik were crowned tag team champions.
The pair were also seen spending some time with wrestling boss Vince McMahon, who posed for a rare picture with Prince Fury, who also got to meet wrestling legends such as Paul Heyman, Ric Flair and Sheamus.
Undefeated world champion Fury is no stranger to the wrestling ring, he actually made his first walk in Saudi Arabia at their Crown Jewel event on Halloween in 2019 for a match with Braun Strowman.
He trained for months in the WWE's Performance Center for the appearance, and last appeared that November during a TV taping in his hometown of Manchester.
Last night, the father and son duo took in the event with Tyson's TV star brother Tommy, who is a 5-0 professional boxer and is currently in talks to fight Jake Paul.
The younger Fury took to his own Instagram page to say that attending the event was a dream come true.
The next ring Tyson Fury steps in to won't be a WWE one though, as he is in preparation mode for the biggest fight of his life against British rival Anthony Joshua for the unified heavyweight title.
The deal is all but done now for the August 14 bout, to take place at a newly built stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
It is believed that Saudi, who are currently not accepting British visitors due to the covid-19 pandemic, will begin letting tourists travel to the kingdom in time for the late-Summer fight date.
Fury will earn upwards of £50million for the fight, which has been dubbed the biggest in the history of British boxing due to its significance and the fact that both heavyweight champions are from the UK.
