WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is believed to be in talks with the WWE about appearing at their upcoming UK stadium show.
In April, the WWE confirmed they are heading to the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales this year for the first UK pay-per-view in 30 years.
When the WWE rolls into town to entertain what they hope to be around 75,000 people on September 3, they’re hoping to have ‘The Gypsy King’ make his second professional wrestling appearance.
According to GiveMeSport, sources close to Fury claim that that the 33-year-old boxer is in talks with WWE regarding a potential return this summer.
At this moment, nothing has been finalised between Fury and the WWE, but talks have taken place between the two parties about an appearance later this summer.
Fury made his debut in WWE when he took on Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel in October 2019.

It was remarkable because Fury had suffered terrible, deep cuts above his eye that required 47 stitches in his fight with Otto Wallin that took place just a couple of months prior to his wrestling debut.
Furthermore, the rematch with Deontay Wilder had already been agreed upon and was locked in for February 2020.
In April, the fan favourite fighter retired from boxing after knocking out Dillian Whyte at Wembley in front of 94,000 fans.
Since then, he’s refused to relinquish his belt and has been talking up fights with the likes of UFC champion Francis Ngannou, Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis, Frank Bruno, The Rock, and the former ‘World’s Strongest Man’, Thor Bjornsson.
The Lineal heavyweight champion has also expressed his interest in returning to the WWE to fight Drew McIntyre.
“Drew McIntyre has been saying a lot of things about me. I might have to knock him out. I’d love to be in Cardiff,” Fury said at his post-fight press conference after knocking out Dillian Whyte.
McIntyre, who has accused Fury of ducking him, was meant to face the boxer at a WWE UK PPV in 2020 before the pandemic hit.
It now appears that he may finally get the chance to share the ring with the best heavyweight boxer on the planet in Cardiff this September.
