ALL THE KING’S MEN Tyson Fury’s comeback fight plans revealed with Brit wanting to take on Game of Thrones star

TYSON FURY has a couple of crazy ideas for his boxing comeback.

The 33-year-old WBC Gypsy King signed off on his April 23 knockout of Dillian Whyte by teasing a cross-sport showdown with UFC heavyweight champ Francis Ngannou.

Fury could fight old friend Derek Chisora for a third time
But the Cameroonian giant – who was in the Wembley ring after the brilliant uppercut KO – is still recovering from a knee injury.

Game of Thrones actor Hafthor Bjornsson was top of Fury’s hit list for an exhibition bout at Tottenham Stadium.

The giant pair have gone back-and-forth on social media but Fury’s backers understandably remain unsure on how that celebrity spectacle would sell on the turnstiles and pay-per-view television.

Fury’s back-up plan is a third fight with old mate Derek Chisora – who he already has two convincing wins over – but again it looks like a hard sell.

The British heavyweight pair are firm friends but even started drumming up some faux needle after Del Boy backed Whyte to beat Fury when they finally met on St George’s Day.

Spurs – who hosted Anthony Joshua’s September loss to Oleksandr Usyk – play away at Bournemouth on October 29 and that date and venue is fancied by Team Fury.

The Mexico-based WBC gave the Morecambe mastermind a year to decide on his future because there is no clear mandatory challenger pushing for a shot at Fury’s belt.
