Tyson Fury has plenty of suitors right now as he’s being called out by Francis Ngannou and Jon Jones.

Dana White has been rather vocal about setting up a potential bout against Jones and seems incredibly open to the idea. But Fury has remained quiet.

But maybe that will change after Jon Jones’ latest claim when he was discussing Tyson Fury at UFC 289.

According to MMA Fighting, Jones reiterates how much he’d love to fight Fury in the cage. But soon after that, he claims he’d be willing to fight Fury in the boxing ring as well.

This really could be legitimate. Dana White allowed Conor McGregor to fight a boxing match against Floyd Mayweather while he was under contract with the UFC. So, White could possibly do that again for Jones and Fury.

Additionally, it’d be a cool way for both fighters to have some common ground. Jones undoubtedly has an advantage in the UFC, while Fury has a big advantage in boxing.

Two super-fights between two of the combat sports stars in the world.

As of right now, nothing is set in stone. It’s all talk. But if Jones is serious and wants to face Fury in the ring, then perhaps Dana White can make it happen.

On the other hand, Francis Ngannou patiently waits for a boxing match of his own.

So, we’ll see how it plays out, but it sounds like there could be some real dialogue between Fury and everybody at the UFC.
