'Eddie Hearn is a p*ssy!' Tyson Fury launches rant at promoter for doubting his ability to KO Deontay Wilder
Fury will take on Wilder in a hotly-anticipated rematch on February 22 in Las Vegas. And while the consensus view is that Wilder is most likely to win by KO and Fury's all-around boxing skills lead him to be a better shot to win by decision, "The Gypsy King" doesn't subscribe to that opinion.
When Hearn recently suggested that he could see Fury winning, but not by KO, Fury responded with an angry tirade directed at his fellow countryman, who promotes rival heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua.
"You know what? I don't really care what Eddie Hearn says because Eddie Hearn is a p*ssy!" Fury told The Main Event on SB Nation Radio.
"I don't even know if I can say that live on the radio but Eddie Hearn is a p*ssy and so is AJ (Anthony Joshua). And if they have any nuts about them they'd have fought me years ago.
"We're from the same country, you know, and he's been avoiding me for a long long time.Also on rt.com Tyson Fury says he’s masturbating SEVEN TIMES A DAY ahead of Deontay Wilder rematch
"He wasn't man enough to step up and fight Deontay Wilder so it took an old fat bald-headed fella to come out of retirement to stand up for his country. To stand up for his nation because they were getting made to look like clowns.
"So what Eddie Hearn and Anthony Joshua says, you can't really take too much from that. They speak a lot of hot air and don't back it up.
"I recently saw him get knocked out by an old fat fella so don't come and talk to lineal champion about performing because you know he's a hit and miss performer completely."Also on rt.com ‘We have a HUGE site offer’: Anthony Joshua wants to fight winner of Tyson Fury v Deontay Wilder in Saudi Arabia this year
