Tyson Fury has revealed that he frequently phones up Rooney after been drunk

Tyson Fury returns to the ring this Saturday nighht against Otto Wallin.

He takes on Swedish Otto Wallin this Saturday night in Las Vegas.

It is his second outing since last December’s draw against WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.

The ‘Gypsy King’ defeated Tom Schwarz in Vegas earlier in the year, knocking out the German in the second round after completely outclassing him.

Boxing fans are expecting the former unified heavyweight champion to put on a similar performance this weekend.

If he wins, Fury can focus on potential bouts against Wilder, Andy Ruiz, and Anthony Joshua.

And the 30-year-old revealed to BBC Sport that he often calls up Joshua to jokingly tell him he’s going to knock him out.

The pair are bitter rivals, but he insisted that it is all light-hearted between the two.

We are just friendly banter really,” Fury claimed.

“I will call him or he will call me. We have a little chat, tell one another we are going to knock one another out and that’s it.”

Joshua isn’t the only person Fury frequently contacts, as he revealed that he also talks to ex-Manchester United forward Rooney on occasion.

“Imagine having lots of celebrities in your phone book – you’re getting them phoned aren’t you?” Fury continued.
