TYSON FURY has cheekily called out Hollywood star and Wrexham co-owner Ryan Reynolds on his YouTube channel.
Fury was speaking after the press conference for his upcoming exhibition bout with Francis Ngannou in Saudi Arabia on Saturday October 28.

Fury even had a date and venue in mind for his prospective fight with Reynolds, at Wrexham’s Racecourse Ground on November 25 as Morecambe take on Reynolds’ Wrexham.
Speaking behind the scenes on the Furocity YouTube channel, Fury asked a member of staff: “Amy, are you going to come down to the Wrexham vs Morecambe game?”
His assistant replied she was planning to, with Fury then revealing: “I’m going to call out Ryan Reynolds.”
Reynolds will no doubt be keen to link up with Fury at the game should they both attend, and will likely be filming the encounter for his own reality show, Welcome to Wrexham.
Fury has tried to take over his beloved Morecambe in the past, but ultimately came off second best with 20-year-old businessman Sarbjot Johal outbidding him.
That takeover did not happen however, leaving Fury able to take a second bite at the cherry should he raise the required capital.
That could aid him in his quest to top Forbes’ sporting rich list.
He said in an exclusive interview with SunSport that Saudi cash will be a massive part of his strategy, explaining: “They’re paying big money, everything they get involved in is big.
“And I believe I’ve just done the biggest boxing deal ever to be done in the history of boxing with them.
“I’m not at liability to talk about numbers but let’s just say the bag is big, mighty f***ing big. But will it change me? Not really.
“Still got the Crocs and the packed lunches from Asda, not too shabby mush!”
Asked if it was just a one-fight deal, Fury, 35, replied: “Can’t say but it’s the biggest boxing deal ever done in history.
But in 2022, he was placed in 15th after making £50m.
