The ‘Gypsy King’ has hit back at the Matchroom boss
Tyson Fury has continued his war of words with Eddie Hearn by branding him a ‘t*t’ and threatening to ‘slap his teeth in.’
The 30-year-old heavyweight is currently engaged in a back and forth with Anthony Joshua’s promoter which stemmed from comments made by Eddie’s father Barry Hearn.
Barry criticised Fury’s upcoming bout against Tom Schwarz, provoking a video reply from Tyson, who called on Eddie to ‘give him another can of beer and put him back in the cupboard.’
Hearn Jr didn’t take kindly to the jibes about his father and so has himself remarked about the limited level of the ‘Gypsy King’s’ next opponent.
Addressing the situation, Fury told Behind The Gloves: “It’s good banter and Eddie loves taking a bit of stick from me. He’s a fanboy.
“Eddie Hearn’s a t*t. He knows that, and I know that, and the rest of the world knows that.
“Eddie Hearn’s got a ‘man crush’ on me, that’s all it is.
“When somebody fancies somebody, they do nasty things to them all the time and they talk s*** about them.”
“Whenever you see Eddie Hearn saying all the bulls*** about me and then you get me responding back to him.
“It’s because he’s got a ‘man crush’ on me and obviously he fancies he, doesn’t he? Don’t you, Eddie?
“I’m gonna take him out for a drink next time I see him. “I’ll even give him a ringside ticket to my next fight in Vegas.
“You know what, it’s jealousy. Eddie Hearn can’t fight. Tom Schwarz would hit Eddie with one jab and a left hook and he’d put Eddie out for a week.”
Two weeks before Fury faces Schwarz on June 15, Anthony Joshua defends his three titles against Andy Ruiz Jr.
Two weeks before that, Deontay Wilder puts his belt on the line against Dominic Breazeale.
While the heavyweight division is vibrant and active once again, it is unfortunately not seeing the best fighting each other at the start of 2019.
Fury continued: “When you get people like Eddie Hearn saying negative stuff about me, I look at it and I think, ‘You know what Eddie? You’ve never had a fight in your life.’
“’How can you call me and say ‘you’re s***’ or whatever because you can’t fight and if you could, you’d be a world champion and I wouldn’t.’
“I understand that he’s a promoter and he has to try and run me down to make his fights look better, but come on, it is what it is.
“I’m sick of all the bulls*** games. I say we call a truce, the next negative word you say about me I’m gonna slap all your teeth in for you.”
