The former heavyweight champion of the world is expected in the coming days to announce his own opponent for his comeback fight on June 9th at the Manchester Arena.
Fury has long been a man never afraid to speak his mind.
Particularly when it comes to his competitors in the heavyweight division at home in the UK.
Recently Liverpool’s Tony Bellew upset the odds again to stop David Haye (again) inside the distance at the 02 Arena in London.
Tyson Fury while speaking to Fight Hype gave his reaction to the fight:
“I expected that fight to go as it did. I actually put one thousand pounds on Bellew to stop him inside the distance because David Haye is finished, he’s shot to pieces. Can’t pull the trigger no more and he’s got two wooden legs so how is he going to beat somebody? If Tony Bellew wouldn’t even been in the ring he (Haye) probably couldn’t have completed twelve rounds by himself. I actually felt sorry for him.”
No mincing of words there.
Bellew and Fury have been linked with a fight against one another at different times over the last year with Bellew saying recently he’d only take Fury on early into his comeback.
As the more and more fights he (Fury) gets under his belt the more dangerous a fight it will be for him – Bellew said.
