Eddie Hearn has hit back at Tyson Fury after the heavyweight branded his father an “old red-faced fool” on Monday.
Eddie’s father, Barry, the veteran Matchroom promoter fired some shots in the direction of Fury regarding his upcoming fight against Tom Schwarz.
After seeing the clip, Fury replied to him.
“Eddie, please sort your dad out. He’s ruining the job for you,”
the ‘lineal’ champion stated. “First of all he’s talking about slaves and slave driving with Dillian Whyte. Next he’s saying to the public, ‘If you don’t like it, don’t pay for it. Everything’s pay-per-view, I’m not bothered if you buy it or not’. Then he’s getting incorrect information with Tom Schwarz because we both know he’s ranked number two in the WBO and in the top ten in the IBF. Best thing to do Eddie is give him another can of beer and put him back in the cupboard, the old red-faced fool. Give him a four-pack of Stella and put him back where he belongs before he ruins your job for you. Eddie, you’re trying to charm everybody with your big smile and your handsome rogue face, but your dad’s coming out and mucking it all up mush. Get him back in the cupboard with a full can of Stella.”
Eddie hit back to Fury, following his comments.
He told iFL TV
: “I thought it was really disrespectful to be honest. He’s talking about, ‘He’s a boozer, a drinker.’ He’s not, but let’s look at history of people. You can’t really be pretending you’re this great role model and then talking to people like that. So I was disappointed with Tyson’s comments, but it is what it is with him. One minute he’s giving his entire purse away to charity, which obviously he never did, and on the other hand he’s now going back to his ways of negativity. I don’t take too kindly to anybody talking about my family.”
