FISTS OF FURY: The only thing worse than a physical beating fromTyson is a verbal assault

By Josh Powell

The unbeaten Tyson Fury held no punches when he went on a foul-mouthed twitter rant that managed to spectacularly insult British and Commonwealth heavyweight champ David Price, promoter Frank Maloney, light heavyweight champion Tony Bellew and a decent proportion of Merseyside.

Price took apart Fraudley Audley Harrison in just 82 seconds on Saturday which sparked a bizarre outburst from Fury live on Channel Five. Price’s promoter Frank Maloney immediately offered Tyson £500,000 to take on the Liverpool fighter but the Price wasn’t right for the Fury camp.

It appears Fury wants a world title shot before he considers taking on Price but he’s going to have to prove he can walk the walk now he’s talked the talk.

Fury’s tweets were so aggressive the British Boxing Board of Control officials will discuss if the Irishman should face punishment, in the form of a fine, ban or both.

WARNING: For all of our mums reading the Paddy Power Blog, skip past the next couple of tweets. They’re super rude and are jammed full of naughty language and spelling mistakes.

The talk from both camps is that they are willing to meet and arrange a fight in the future which could set us up for a blockbuster showdown next year. In anticipation for the big fight we’ve priced up David Price as the 1/4 favourite with Tyson Fury 13/5 to back up his tweets.

For now we can enjoy Tyson calling out David Price, worrying Channel Five producers and giving a swift backhand to plumbers all in a 40 second clip.
