Tyson Fury’s father has declared his eagerness to fight a ‘bodybuilder’ who ‘called him out’ on Thursday.

John, father of the WBC heavyweight champion, has been in a war of words with a ‘former British bodybuilding champion’ Mickey Theo. The 56-year-old ex bodybuilder posted a video where he claimed he was ‘fitter’ than John Fury.  

In an out-of-the-blue exchange, Fury, in his typical unreserved manner, responded with potentially his most iconic video response to date.

He ranted: ‘you’re messing with John Fury here mate and I’m the best 50-year-old in the world’

Speaking with iFL TV, Fury responded to the challenge by ranting: ‘Just replying to a video I’ve just seen there. A bodybuilder wants to fight me. That ain’t no problem mate, don’t know you, don’t wanna know you.

‘But let me tell you something mate, you’re messing with John Fury here mate and I am the best 50-odd-year-old man in the world. And I will stand on what I say mate.’

John became the unexpected star of the ITV series ‘Tyson Fury: The Gypsy King’ that documented his son’s return to the boxing ring. The three-part series touched on the families background in fighting, that Fury alluded to in his response.

‘I’ll either fight you in the ring, which you can forget about that one pal, I’ve fought world class men in my time. Let me tell you this my old mate, I will fight you gypsy style, don’t you worry about that.

‘I have never, ever denied a challenge in my life my friend. You’ve mentioned my name, you’ve gotta fight now.

‘I’m all over London with the boxing. Make yourself known mate and you can have it there and then, on the spur of the moment pal.

The Fury family have always been quite outspoken, with Tyson taking the lead with his whacking quotes and press conference antics. 

Fury suggested turning the supposed bout into a charity fight to raise money for the NHS to help fight the coronavirus pandemic. 

‘I don’t need training camps, I don’t need time to get fit, I’m 24 hours ready,’ Fury added. 

‘I will fight you, get hold of my agent Spencer Brown in Blackpool who’ll sort it all out. I’ll fight you anywhere you want in the UK my friend, anywhere at all. And you’ll wish you never mentioned my name.

‘Spencer Brown will be contacting your people, everybody knows me. I fear no man, let alone you. And pal, I’ve seen your sparring, you’re no good to me my mate. But listen I’ll fight you gypsy style because fighting’s too hard mate to do for free.

‘Let’s fight for a few quid. I know the NHS thing, God bless them they’re doing a good job trying to help everyone who’s dying. But you’re trying to make a name for yourself from somebody’s famous father. It’ll be the last thing you ever do mate because you know them false teeth?

He continued to threaten him, saying: ‘I’ll knock them straight through the back of your head my friend. So don’t you worry about that, you’ve gotta fight. Good day to you and God bless you as well.’
