Current WBA and WBO world heavyweight title holder Tyson Fury met with Mike Tyson, the former undisputed heavyweight world champion whom he was named after, at ringside at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Saturday night.

Both were there to watch WBC heavyweight title holder Deontay Wilder defend his belt against Poland’s Artur Szpilka via 9th round KO.

Fury spoke in Tyson’s ear and then kissed his hand in respect. Fury is a big Iron Mike fan, just as his father ‘Gypsy’ John Fury, was and who named him after him at birth. [sam id=”1″ codes=”true”]
