League Two outfit Crawley will take on Marcelo Bielsa's Premier League Whites in Sunday's 1.30pm kick-off with 62 places between the two sides in the football pyramid.

Fury, though, has frequently triumphed as the underdog in his boxing career and the 32-year-old recorded a video message for Crawley ahead of their weekend showdown in the third round.

The game will be screened live on the BBC.

"Hey this is Tyson Fury, this is a special message to Crawley Town," said Fury.

"Hi guys, I know you have got 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."
