Tyson Fury is no stranger to hurling insults at everyone that comes his way or even dares to mention his name at any point. In fact, he definitely enjoys it.
He had a field day with the mic during the press conference for his upcoming October fight against MMA fighter-turned-boxer Francis Ngannou. He threw shade at Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder, and offered himself up for a fight in the octagon with Ngannou or Jon Jones.
Following the press conference, Fury was asked by media about Oleksandr Usyk‘s recent performance against Daniel Dubois, and he did not hold back.
I thought he was a little s***bag, cheated. Supposed to be this big god-fearing man, rolling up and down with a low blow when it hit him on the belt line. Come on, don’t be a little s***house coward, you be a man. Stand up to it. That wasn’t a low blow, I know that. And one’s a little s***house p***y, I know that too. He lost, man, he got beat by Dubois.
The low blow mentioned was a controversial talking point in boxing circles, but it’s impossible to know if Usyk was really hurt by it or not.
Fury vs. Usyk needs to happen
Fury is prone to call anyone by those names, but him and Usyk have history. The two were in talks for a potential mega fight early in 2023. Usyk was coming off of an undisputed title defense against Joshua, while Fury had just beaten Derek Chisora.
Unfortunately, the talks never got far enough, with a rematch clause being the main reason negotiations broke down. Many believe Fury has been avoiding Usyk. It seems to be only a matter of time before the two finally meet in the ring.
