The Mad O’Rourkes Pie Factory team took to social media as part of their mission to bring Tyson Fury to Tipton to try his namesake pie, created in honor of his recent retirement from the sport.
Featuring slow-cooked brisket in a rich gravy topped with the factory’s signature golden pastry, the pie has already proven popular with pie lovers and boxing fans alike, earning rave reviews.
However, it’s a critique of the main man himself that Mad O’Rourkes Peter Towler is really after.
He said: “No trip to the Black Country is complete without a trip to Mad O’Rourkes – our pies are truly legendary.
“With the equally legendary Tyson on his way to Wolverhampton later this week for his After Show Party in Wolverhampton, we can’t think of a better way to share all that the region has to offer than to try the pie we named after him. .
“We are avid boxing fans at Mad O’Rourkes, that’s where we got the idea for the pie in the first place.
“So far customers have been raving, especially enjoying our famous battered fries, but we really want to hear what the Gypsy King himself has to say about it.
“Tyson, it’s time to forget ‘bye, bye Miss American Pie’ and come ‘try, try our Ty-son Fury Pie’…we promise you won’t be disappointed.”
With just days until the event in Wolverhampton on Friday June 24, Pie fans are encouraged to support the campaign by spreading the word on social media using the hashtag GetTysonToThePie.
