A conversation between Tyson Fury and Cristiano Ronaldo took place not too long ago, just in time for the WBC heavyweight champion’s bout against Francis Ngannou, which will take place in Riyadh this coming weekend. During the course of their discussion, “The Gypsy King” referred to the famed footballer as the “greatest” and discussed the reasons behind his avoidance of stadiums.
Both Tyson Fury and Cristiano Ronaldo have ties to the city of Manchester, which is located in England. Despite the fact that the heavyweight boxer was born there, ‘CR7’ was the most expensive adolescent that the English football giants Manchester United bought in the year 2003. After establishing himself as a breakout star at United and capturing nine major trophies over the course of four years prior to obtaining a transfer to Real Madrid, Ronaldo got his first taste of the international spotlight.
It should come as no surprise that Manchester native Tyson Fury is a supporter of Cristiano Ronaldo. Fury is a devoted follower of Manchester United and has been known to attend matches played at the club’s Old Trafford stadium in the past. Fury was born and raised in Manchester.

After that, he went on to explain why he didn’t go to stadiums very often to watch football matches and said:
“I go to the stadium, but every time I do so, I put myself through a great deal of pain. It’s exactly the same as… It is quite challenging for me.
