Tyson Fury says he would go to war to defend the United Kingdom if needed.

Recently, several athletes like the Klitschko brothers and Vasyl Lomachenko are helping defend Ukraine against Russia. For Fury, he says if England ever went to war he would be the first person to step up to help defend his country.

“Well, it’s what they should be doing,” Fury said to talkSport. “When it comes to war on UK soil, I’ll be first up. I’ll be first up, I’ll be the easiest target to hit at 6ft 9ins, I’ll be dead first. Frank [Warren] will be shading from the bullets behind me and I’ll just catch them all like a nutcase.”

As of right now, there is no talk of England needing to go to war. With that, Tyson Fury is focusing on his upcoming heavyweight title fight against Dillian Whyte on April 23. Although this is the fight, many thought we could possibly see Fury-Usyk next but the Brit says the Whyte fight had to happen.

“Dillian Whyte was happy with his money, but AJ wasn’t happy with his step-aside and they lost the biggest deal for him out there,” Fury added. “Now he’s in limbo because obviously Oleksandr Usyk’s back in Ukraine with a machine gun. And it doesn’t look like he’s gonna be fighting any time soon.”

The hope for Fury is to fight Usyk next and unify the heavyweight division if he gets past Whyte/

Tyson Fury (31-0-1) is coming off the KO win over Deontay Wilder back in October which was their trilogy bout. Prior to that, he had the TKO win in the rematch fight against Wilder to win the WBC title. In his career, Fury holds notable wins over Wladimir Klitschko, Derek Chisora, Steve Cunningham, and Christian Hammer among others.
