Braun Strowman has warned Tyson Fury he has already had a taste of what lies ahead when they face off at WWE Crown Jewel tomorrow night (Thursday).
Strowman attacked Fury as he trained at the WWE Performance Center last week ahead of his wrestling debut at Saudi Arabia.
The pair came face to face as they weighed in ahead of their huge clash – and Strowman denied taking a cheap shot on Fury as he sent a clear warning to the Gypsy King.
The WWE star claimed the lineal heavyweight boxing champion simply got a “taste” of what he will face when the giant duo step into the ring as he declared his desire to take the opportunity to showcase his power against the unbeaten Fury.
Strowman said: “I wouldn’t necessarily call it a cheap shot, it was more of an ‘open you eyes, Tyson Fury ‘.
“I told you that you were stepping into my ring, my world, and you just got a bit of a taste of what’s going to happen to you at Crown Jewel.
“This is an unbelievable opportunity for me to showcase what the Monster Among Men is capable of doing.
“Stepping into the ring with a man such as Tyson Fury, and what he’s overcome, on the back end of that being a world champion boxer.
“This is an opportunity for me to show the world what I’m capable of doing.
“Stay tuned. Tyson Fury, you’re going to get these hands.”
Fury, meanwhile, insists he is not concerned about the prospect of suffering his first ever defeat as a professional fighter – instead being excited to take on a man of his own size.
Fury said: “I’m very. very excited.
“I’m very ecstatic to be here in Saudi Arabia, at Crown Jewel.
“This is a fantastic stadium and I’m ready to put on a show tomorrow night.
“I’m good. I’m 100%. I never make any excuses. I’ll be ready for the night, don’t worry about that.”
