Two-time boxing champion Tyson Fury will be ringside for WWE’s Clash at the Castle premium live event this Saturday, 3 September.
The 34-year-old confirmed as much in a video uploaded to WWE’s official Twitter account on Thursday. Tyson claimed he was excited to take in the big event, which will be WWE’s first stadium show in the United Kingdom since SummerSlam 1992.

GiveMeSport’s Louis Dangoor broke the news of Fury’s impending Clash at the Castle presence earlier in the week. It was stated at the time that Tyson was unlikely to do anything physical on the show, however, as Fury doesn’t want to risk injury should he opt to return to professional boxing in the near future.
Fury and Drew McIntyre had previously teased a potential match through the media, leading to speculation they might face at Clash. This cannot happen for a multitude of reasons – including the small matter of McIntyre’s impending Undisputed WWE Universal Championship match with Roman Reigns on the show.
WWE Crown Jewel 2019 hosted a poorly-received match between Fury and Braun Strowman, which Tyson won via countout. The boxer is believed to have earned around $15 million for the bout.
