Tyson Fury hopes to see Crawley Town clinch an FA Cup upset on Sunday when they take on Leeds United.

The two-time boxing heavyweight world champion will be watching on when the League Two outfit host their Premier League opponents.

Fury has a keen interest in football and is known to be a Manchester United supporter.

It helps explain why he wants to see Leeds dumped out of the competition this weekend.

United’s rivals will be well aware they could potentially slip up at Broadfield Stadium if they are not on their game.

Marcelo Bielsa’s men look set to avoid any Premier League relegation battle in their first season back in the top flight, so he can name a strong enough team in the FA Cup.

Fury has given Crawley extra motivation, though, sending them a personal video message ahead of the match.

In the clip, the Red Devils fan said: "This is a special message to Crawley Town.

"Hi guys, I know you have a big game against Leeds but never underestimate the underdog.

"I have been the underdog so many times in my career and always come out on top. Come on the boys!"

It is the first time Crawley have reached the third round of the FA Cup since 2013, when they were eventually knocked out by Reading at this stage.

Leeds’ recent record is not much to brag about, however, as they have struggled under Bielsa in the competition.

The Yorkshire side have failed to get past the third round in the last three seasons, despite automatically qualifying for that stage each time having been in the Championship.
