Heavyweight kings Stipe Miocic and Tyson Fury continue to tease of a showdown in the boxing ring, with Miocic recently tweeting ‘let’s dance’ in response to ‘The Gypsy King’s’ call for a crossover boxing match after his rematch with Deontay Wilder.

“Stipe says he wants to box me; that would be a good fight for sure. After I get Wilder out of the way, I’ll fight Stipe in a boxing match if he wants it. It would be a big crossover fight like Mayweather and McGregor. I’m open to that fight, so he should come and see me. It would be the same outcome for any of them: They’ll all get smashed,” Fury said.

“Let’s dance,” Miocic tweeted in response to Fury.

Although there’s mutual interest in a boxing match, Fury recently hinted that he could one day make the crossover to MMA, as recent video footage showed the 31-year-old learning the basics with UFC middleweight contender Darren Till at Team Kaobon gym in Liverpool, England.

With Fury set for a rematch with Wilder, Miocic has his hands full with former two-division champ Daniel Cormier, who Miocic knocked out earlier this year at UFC 241 to even the score 1-1. Both men are expected to collide in a heavyweight trilogy bout next year, although no date or venue has been announced.
