Conor McGregor tells Tyson Fury to get in the cage after the boxing superstar vowed to fight Francis Ngannou
CONOR McGREGOR has wondered if Tyson Fury will ever keep his promise to fight in the cage.
Fury has already called out former UFC champion Francis Ngannou to a mixed rules fight in the cage.
He proposed a stand-up fight to be fought with the smaller 4-ounce MMA gloves but following the rules of boxing.
But UFC legend McGregor has heard too many broken promises from Fury to take the challenge too seriously.
He said: “Is Tyson ready to step in the frigging cage or what? He says he would, Tyson says a lot of things.”
“I love him, he’s a crazy, crazy thing Tyson. And I’m happy to see him go.”
Fury, 34, is currently missing out on a summer rematch due to limited opponents available.
This comes after he witnessed talks collapse over a duel with 36-year-old Oleksandr Usyk in the first heavyweight division four-belt unification bout.
But boxing bosses in Saudi Arabia are looking to relive the historic fight through a series of tournament-style bouts.
Eddie Hearn revealed there is a plan to have Fury fight Usyk on the same night as Anthony Joshua (33) fights Deontay Wilder (37).

And McGregor questioned the promoter at his Black Forge Inn pub in Dublin, just days before Katie Taylor’s homecoming fight.
He said, “What about old Saudi Arabia? Are the four real? With the four? I know you want the fight Saudi Arabia wants to do it?”
“Interesting, isn’t it the Saudis? Do you think it will happen?”
Hearn: It’s a lot of money. There are three people who will do it. We’ll see what Tyson Fury thinks.”
McGregor lost his boxing debut in 2017 to undefeated tall Floyd Mayweather, 46, but would like to fight Mexican icon Canelo Alvarez, 32.
Though he joked, Hearn would have to settle for co-promotion because the UFC icon is such a superstar.
McGregor said: “You know what level I’m at, co-promoted at best! At best co-promotion.”
