“A good buddy of mine, who many of you know, if not all of you, Tyson Fury, the heavyweight champion of the world,” he began.

“And he said the pain you go through is temporary but the greatness on the other side is eternal.

“And I love that quote because it’s the thing that we always have to remember constantly.

“If we can just get past this pain threshold training, whatever it is, on the other side, man, that’s the good s***.

“This is greatness, so cross that threshold and achieve your greatness.”

Fury looks set to face mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte with his WBC heavyweight title on the line after coming through his trilogy with Deontay Wilder with a draw followed by two knockout wins.

The 33-year-old Gypsy King is still unbeaten with a record of 31-1-0 and if he succeeds against Whyte, probably in April according to Eddie Hearn, then the doors will open for the undisputed title fight against Oleksandr Usyk or Anthony. Joshua.

The Rock has worked hard in Hollywood and has twice been the highest-grossing actor of any movie in recent years.

It is still widely believed that The Great One will return to WWE for one last match and it will likely be against his cousin, Roman Reigns, at WrestleMania 39 in 2023.
