Former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury reacts to Ricky Hatton who poked fun of his current overweight physique.

The two boxers are known for the razor sharp wit and sense of humour and being both from Manchester, know one another quiet well.

The banter kicked off between the pair earlier today when Ricky Hatton posted this colorful cut out of Fury saying:

“My & my mate today. Both in the shape of our lives. Bring it on.”

Never one to take himself seriously, classic Hatton.

To which Fury replied in similar fashion:

“Looking well here rick, both in great shape.”

Fury has been working hard today at Hatton’s gym in Manchester, sparring with the likeable and also colorful Dave ‘White Rhino’ Allen.

Hatton is predicting big things on the Tyson Fury comeback, and warned many not to underestimate him:

Fury received good news earlier today that his UKAD hearing will definitely happen next month, which could potentially bring to an end his long exile from boxing as if he is cleared – he can then apply for a boxing license once again and resume his heavyweight career.

All hinges on the UKAD hearing next month it would seem.
