Former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is making final preparations for his June 9th comeback but has taken some time out to respond to one Tony Bellew.
Bellew produced one of the best performances of his career last time out and stopped former heavyweight champion David Haye for the second time, back to back.
Now Bellew is looking around for a new opponent next and following the win over Haye recently he admitted he’d love to fight Fury but sooner rather than later, as Fury will only get sharper throughout his comeback in his opinion.
Speaking to Fight Hype, Fury responded by saying:
“I don’t want to fight Tony Bellew. The reason being he’s a family man and has a wife and kids and I want him to stay healthy and stay boxing, earn a few quid and go home safely to his family. But if he steps into the ring with the Gypsy king and I unleash hell’s fire on him – I could damage him and hurt him properly. You ain’t messing with a David Haye who’s twenty years out of date. Your’re messing with someone 6’9, 19 stone, in the prime of my life – who could knock a wall down.”
Fury’s comeback is now just three and half weeks away and as of yet no opponent has been confirmed for his Manchester Arena comeback date.
