Tyson Fury includes Dwayne Johnson in four-fight exhibition shortlist

The Gypsy King is adamant he will not be returning to the ring as a professional. With that in mind, could we possibly see Fury involved in an exhibition?

In a series of interviews this week, Fury has said he doesn't need the money and has no interest in fighting Anthony Joshua or Oleksandr Usyk.

To contradict himself, Fury has also said he would beat either fighter and is prepared to lace up the gloves for £500m.

In the prime of his career, it's hard to see Fury not fighting again but as it stands, let's take his word and presume he only wants 'pantomime' fights.

Below, we look at four names he is willing to have exhibition bouts with.

Dwayne Johnson

Also known as the Rock, Johnson is now the biggest actor in Hollywood.

The 50-year-old is known for his roles in Jumanji, the Fast & Furious franchise and Central Intelligence.

However, Johnson first made his name in wrestling and is one of the greatest in WWE history.

He sent a good luck message to Fury ahead of his fight against Dillian Whyte and while an exhibition between the pair would not see them trade punches, you can guarantee it would be entertaining.

Mike Tyson

The Baddest Man on the Planet proved he still has the skills to pay the bills.

Tyson went toe-to-toe with Roy Jones Jr back in 2019 and looked incredible considering he had not boxed since 2005.

He has admitted he is open to fighting in more exhibitions and even said he was considering a fight with either Jake Paul or Logan Paul.

Tyson Fury was named after the heavyweight icon and they have a huge amount of respect for each other.

Not only would it be a crossover of two generational greats, it would generate a huge amount of money at the box office.

Lennox Lewis

The last undisputed champion of the heavyweight division.

Lewis defeated Evander Holyfield in 1999 to win all of the major belts to unify at heavyweight and secured his legacy in the sport with wins over a faded Mike Tyson and up-and-coming Vitali Klitschko.

Lewis would return for an exhibition fight if he was offered £50m and even revealed his interest in a rematch against Tyson.

The British legend spoke about his chances of beating Tyson Fury in his prime and was confident of the outcome.

"I think that would be a great fight, with, of course, me winning," he told talkSPORT.

"I'm not going to say I'm going to lose, and he would probably say the same thing.

"I respect what he's done for the sport, what he's doing for the sport, his ring IQ, and just how he treats his people and how he is."

Frank Bruno

The former heavyweight world champion is good friends with Tyson Fury. What's more, the Gypsy King is also an ambassador for his foundation.

The Frank Bruno Foundation offers support to those struggling with mental health - something Bruno and Fury both battle with.

Bruno, 60, was the most popular British fighter of his time in the 1980s and 1990s despite Lennox Lewis fighting in the same era - as well as beating him.
