John Fury, who is reportedly waiting to be given official permission, is believed to be currently behind bars on an 11-year sentence for gouging out the eye of a man during a fight at a car auction.
"It will be great to have me dad back with me," the Daily Mail quotes Fury as saying. "I speak to him almost every day on the phone. I visit him regularly."
The 49-year-old, who is eligible for early release in 2015 after serving four years, will have to return to prison just after midnight if he is granted permission to attend the fight.
