Tyson Fury launches X-rated rant at Oleksandr Usyk after Ukrainian AGREES terms for April 29 undisputed blockbuster
TYSON FURY has launched an x-rated rant at Oleksandr Usyk as the pair appear to be closing in on a date for their heavyweight clash.
The wheels started moving yesterday as Fury sparked a war of words between the pair and demanded 70 per cent of any fight purse.
Fury used social media to spark some life into an undisputed clash with Usyk next month
Usyk said he agreed to Fury’s terms – but under one conditionRex
The Gypsy King even told his opponent that the clock is ticking and he would slash at the 30 per cent fee until Usyk agreed.
But Usyk hit back and said he would accept Fury’s terms – but only on the condition that Fury donates to Ukraine’s war effort.
Fury has now had another pop at his rival as he urged Usyk to put pen to paper with a provocative rant.
The 34-year-old said on Instagram: “Usyk, you little s***bag. Sign the contract, get your money and get f***ed up.
“You little s***house. You’re a little gappy-toothed, ugly bastard. Sign the contract.”
Fury has often used social media when he has become frustrated with slow-moving negotiations.
It was one of his main tactics when trying to goad Anthony Joshua into an all-British bout last year.
But it appears to have sped events up with an undisputed heavyweight clash at Wembley at the end of April now seriously on the cards.

Usyk appeared to accept the terms in his video message but put forward an unexpected ultimatum to Fury.
The Ukrainian said: “Hey, Greedy Belly. I accept your off of a 70-30 split to fight on April 29 at Wembley.
“But you will promise to donate £1million to the people of Ukraine immediately after the fight.
“And for every day you delay you will pay one per cent of your purse to the Ukrainian people. Deal?”
It will now be up to Fury and Usyk’s team to try and thrash out a deal to give boxing fans the biggest fight of the year.
