Fury taunts Usyk once again as he labels him a 'middleweight'

Tyson Fury, the WBC heavyweight champion, has fired back at Oleksandr Usyk, the unified WBO, IBF, IBO, and WBA champion, who taunted Fury on social media.

Usyk recently took a shot at Fury on social media, calling him "belly" and asking, "Where are you?"

The two unbeaten belt holders are in serious talks to meet in the coming months, with the fight possibly taking place in the Middle East or the United Kingdom.

Fury, as expected, lashed out at Usyk for his callout. "Usyk, calling out the Gypsy King with your pathetic little callouts, dosser," Fury said.

"Rabbit, I'm coming for you rabbit. You're getting it rabbit. And I'll tell you what else, I'm going to bust you up real bad you little middleweight. I'm going to slap you into a big pile of tattoos, sucker."

Top Rank CEO Bob Arum, who also co-promotes Fury, recently stated that he is awaiting a firm offer from the Middle East. The fighters' contract calls for a 50-50 split.

However, if the competition is held in the United Kingdom, Arum suggests that Fury will require a larger cut of the pie.

“Everybody agreed that if [Saudi Arabia’s] offer comes through and it’s real, that’s how we’ll go. If not, we’ll do the fight at Wembley," Arum stated.

“The fighters have agreed to fight. I spoke to Frank Warren. We’re giving them until [this] week to come with their offer, which I believe we’ll get. If we don’t, then we’re gonna do the fight at Wembley. And then we’d have to talk about the percentages because Usyk wants 50-50. That’s not right if the fight’s at Wembley because there will be 95,000 Brits at the fight and big Brit pay-per-view money, so Tyson deserves the lion’s share.

“But we don’t get to that point if the [investors in Saudi Arabia] come through, because the way they operate is they make deals with each of the fighters. We’ve been led to believe that they’re going to come with a proposal [this] week. I’ll believe it when I see it, but it’s not like they haven’t come through in the past.”

Who do you think wins the massive heavyweight fight between the two boxers?
