Boxing star Tyson Fury was recently seen training with UFC welterweight challenger Darren Till, but he’s now confirmed that he still intends to train with former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor too in the near future.
“I’m looking forward to coming to train with Conor. We’re going to get it all planned in and I should be over in Dublin quite soon,” Fury told RTE Radio 1.
“I think Conor is an absolutely fantastic fighting man. He has offered to train me if I ever want to go into MMA. What better trainer could I have than the Notorious Conor McGregor? I’m looking forward to coming to train with Conor. We’re going to get it all planned in and I should be over in Dublin quite soon.
“I’ll definitely be coming over for a training session, that is for sure. I have been MMA training in the last week with Darren Till in Liverpool. I really enjoy the new challenge. I don’t know where or when [I’ll move into MMA] because after I finish my boxing career I fancy my hand at MMA as well.”
It’s worth noting that Fury had originally stated his interest in making his MMA debut before the end of the year, but he seems to have rethought that now and instead is suggesting he may take on the sport after he’s hung up his boxing gloves.
