Tyson Fury offered movie role in next Expendables film by Sylvester Stallone

Sylvester Stallone has offered Tyson Fury a big bucks role in the next Expendables movie.

Rocky legend Stallone called the offer a “done deal” In a video taken by British Strongman Eddie Hall

Stallone, 75, initially praised The Gypsy King for his knockout performance in the ring against American fighter Deontay Wilder at the T-Mobile Arena in Nevada earlier this month.

Dazzled by Fury’s world heavyweight boxing victor, he said: “Bingo! Hey Tyson, you’re amazing. Seriously, that’s the fight of the century and it couldn’t happen to a better guy.

"I was talking to Eddie about that theory. He had a plan until you hit him, and like all bad plans, it went out the window, just fantastic, great theatre.”

The Hollywood star then offered the fighter an opportunity to appear in the action thriller franchise.

He added: “By the way, I think you have a fantastic career in movies. So the next expendables, done deal!” Stallone said.

The heavyweight fighting champion, 33, teased at a collaboration with Hollywood star last year, saying he had been asked to play a villain in an action film by the star.

The Wythenshawe-born fighter said back in 2019: "I have managed to do all of these things in the last year, a single with Robbie Williams, an autobiography and now I have had an offer from Sylvester Stallone to do a movie.

"It's not another Rocky, I believe it's an action film that they are looking for a villain to play the bad guy in – and probably get beat up by Stallone at the end.

Fury knocked out Deontay Wilder to retain his WBC and The Ring heavyweight titles on Saturday, October 9.

After an eleven-round slugfest, Fury eventually landed a huge right hand while backing Wilder on the ropes.

The referee immediately stopped the fight after witnessing Wilder collapse to the mat in defeat.

The drama continued after the bout as Wilder, dubbed 'The Bronze Bomber', refused to shake hands with Fury and stated that didn't respect the Englishman.

Stallone has been working on the fourth instalment of The Expendables which will also star Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Megan Fox and Andy Garcia, with the action flick is due out next year.

Plans are in the pipeline for a fifth which could feature Fury.
