Tyson Fury trying to get dad John to fight on undercard of his clash with Dillian Whyte at sold out Wembley in April

TYSON FURY is trying to get his dad John to fight on the undercard of his all-Brit heavyweight title clash with Dillian Whyte at Wembley.

The WBC champion is set to go head-to-head with Whyte on April 23.



And Tyson might not be the only Fury on the card with the 33-year-old looking to get dad John and potentially brother Shane involved.

Fury told Queensberry Promotions: "I'm trying to get John on the undercard, to be honest.

"We're still working on that. Frank [Warren] is working very hard behind the scenes, it's not been announced but I'm just going to give you a little sneaky preview.

"Big John, trying to get him on the undercard, so yeah. Don't be surprised."

On Big John potentially taking on Matchroom chief Eddie Hearn, Fury reckons his dad drops Hearn inside 30 seconds.

He continued: "No. My dad would chin Eddie Hearn in one round, it wouldn't be 30 seconds."

Fury also said it would 'not be a problem' to arrange his brother Shane taking on rival Whyte's brother Dean.

The pair have been going back and forth for a number of years, and April 23 could be the night they finally get inside the ring.
