Gunther recently spoke about the possibility of a match with Tyson Fury and if Vince McMahon has asked to be chopped. The Smackdown star spoke with Cultaholic Wrestling for a new interview and you can check out some highlights below (per Wrestling Inc):

On the idea of a match with Fury: “To be honest, it seems like from what you see, he’s been around WWE. And from what you hear, it seems to be like a cool guy and a pretty laid-back person. He’s one of the best of all time in his sport. I’m not a big boxing fan, but Ludwig is into boxing, he boxed himself in his youth. Sometimes I talk to him about it, and then I pick things up. Actually, we watched the fight in the locker room the other day, massive crowd, really crazy. It’s great because he’s so unorthodox I think, he doesn’t look like the best athlete in the world, but in his sport, he is. If I will get the chance to wrestle him in WWE, I will definitely be very open to that.”

If Gunther was to get into the ring with Tyson Fury, he thinks he would have one disadvantage. The reach of the British boxer is something that would potentially nullify his chops.

On his strategy against Fury: “It might be tricky with the chops though, he’s got a long reach, he’s got long arms himself. I should not try to get that close. I might need to go to the legs more than that.”

On whether Vince McMahon has ever wanted to be chopped by him: “He hasn’t, but nobody ever asks me for one, to be honest, it hasn’t happened. I think he can take it, he’ll be fine, he’s a tough man.”
