TYSON Fury is headed for an out of this world experience as he reveals plans to travel into space next year.
The boxing world champion says he is "first on the list" for galactic space travel as soon as summer 2021.
Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show that airs this weekend, The Gypsy King said: “I’ve always wanted to go to space. I used to look at the moon and think, ‘I want to go there one day’.
"This year, an opportunity arose where Virgin are doing galactic space travel…
"Supposed to be going into space in the middle of next year. I’m going to be one of the first ones on the list.
"So hopefully I’ll be going to space. I cannot wait.
"If anything did go wrong, god forbid, what a story, what a legendary end.”
The WBC heavyweight boxing champ says it has always been his "dream" to become a space tourist.
He credits the legendary Muhammad Ali for helping him believe the impossible is possible.
Fury has previously told how Ali is his inspiration in the sport – and the 32-year-old is thankful to 'The Greatest' for proving that great things can be achieved with self-belief.
On Saturday night, Tyson tells The Jonathan Ross Show about his space plans as he stars alongside Dame Joan Collins, comedian Russell Kane and presenter Maya Jama.
- The Jonathan Ross Show airs on Saturday at 9.25pm on ITV.
