Tyson Fury names Eric Cantona as the one Man Utd legend he’d like to meet for drink and plans 365-pub challenge for 2022

TYSON FURY admitted he would love to pop to the pub for a pint with Manchester United legend Eric Cantona.

The heavyweight champion, who plans to drink 365 beers this year, would also like to have a drink with Jesus Christ, Elvis Presley and Tom Jones.

During an interview with Gareth A Davies, Fury was asked which stars from past or present he would like to get to know over a pint.

Davies immediately guessed that the Gypsy King, who defends his WBC title against Dillian Whyte on Saturday, would pick Cantona as he is a huge fan of Manchester United.

Fury, 33, responded: “That’s who I’d want as you know he’s my all-time favourite player. I would love to have a beer with Eric.”

The unbeaten heavyweight has been spotted in the crowd at United’s Theatre of Dreams on a number of occasions.

When asked if he likes to attend United’s home games, Fury said: “Yeah, I did before Covid changed the world.”

As well as Cantona, Fury added a few other big names to his star-studded guest list.

He named Jesus Christ, then added: “Can you imagine what it would be like to have a beer with my saviour?”

Fury continued: “I’d like to have a beer with Elvis Presley, that would be a good one.

“And I’d love to have a beer with Tom Jones. Me, Tom and Elvis in a room having a few beers.”

He also admitted he would ‘love’ to have a beer with Donald Trump – but he did not make Fury’s final cut.

However, any drinking sessions were put on hold last year, as Fury went the whole of 2021 without alcohol.

He said last year: “I’m having a dry 2021, like last year I had three or four days where I had a few drinks in the year.

“This year I’m having none, I’m having a dry 2021. Not that I need to, I just want to do it as a challenge. I like challenges.

“Then in 2022, my goal is to have one pint of beer per day for 365 days of the year.

“But here’s the twist, it’s got to be in a different pub, bar or hotel everday.

“I’m going to take a picture with the pub and the pint, so the logo is in the background.

“At the end of the year, with 365 of them I’m going to put them onto a collage and put it up in my room.”
