The Gypsy King is set to defend his world heavyweight title against his old rival on Saturday in a bout that has drawn plenty of criticism, with many branding it a mis-match given Fury is already 2-0 against the veteran.
Via The Sun, however, Fury has promised to head to the middle east if England can get to the last four of the competition.

He said: ‘If England get through then I will be heading out to Qatar, for sure.
‘I wouldn’t be rushing out for a group game because I expected us to get through that s***. But if they get to the semis or final, then I will be on my way to Qatar.
‘It would be great to get a winter World Cup win after all these years. I remember going out to the Euros in 2016 and having a fantastic time. I went over there and got absolutely legless for a couple of days.
‘I was singing all my England songs and I was up and down with all the England fans in the zones. It’s still an epic memory.’

England will play Wales in their final Group B match on Tuesday, needing to avoid a defeat of four goals or more to progress to the last 16.
They will top the group with a win, however, and will be hoping to bounce back after a poor performance last time out as they drew 0-0 with USA.
If they do reach the last 16, they will face the runners up of Group A, likely Senegal, before a potential mouth-watering tie against defending champions France.
