Eddie Hearn's recent comments on Tyson Fury's upcoming clash with Deontay Wilder for the WBC World Championship on February 22 at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas have not gone down well with The Gypsy King.
The Matchroom Sport promoter believes that Fury will win the fight. However, Hearn isn't convinced that the victory will come from a knockout, which is what Fury has routinely suggested in the lead up to this epic rematch - even going as far as to predict that the KO will come inside the first two rounds.
Fury, being made aware of the comments, told the The Main Event show on SB Nation Radio, 'You know what? I don't really care what Eddie Hearn says because Eddie Hearn is a p*ssy.'
He went on to tear into Hearn and his client Anthony Joshua by stating that '(Joshua) 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.'
Fury has frequently stressed how much he has worked on adding KO power to his game throughout this camp and clearly feels aggravated by these negative comments.
If Fury does manage to beat Wilder - possibly even by KO - would that set up a Fury Vs Joshua Battle of the British somewhere down the line?
It looks as though Fury is in the mood to shut up Hearn and Joshua, so watch this space.
