Tyson Fury’s father, John, has threatened to ‘spank’ Eddie Hearn if he doesn’t give a contract for a mega-fight with Anthony Joshua. Fury Sr has hilariously admitted he will go to great distances to get the Joshua fight agreed and over the line.
WBC champion Fury is set to fight his compatriot Joshua, who is the WBA, WBO and IBF champion.
When asked what John thought about the promoter, he said: “Don’t know him. I know Barry and the man’s never done me no harm. He’s always been right with me, the father, I don’t know the son.
“I don’t know him but he seems a bit arrogant to me. Cracked up the ear hole. Thats’s what you get round me in a second. I pull rank on them kind of people because I can.”
He added: “He’s not going to talk to me like that because I’ll stretch him. I’ll spank him like a kid and I don’t care if he sees this or not because it’s true. I don’t take the bulls*** mate, sign the document! You have it in front of you, sign it! Sign the f***ing contract.”
Hearn brilliantly responded by saying: “You know I’m scared by big John Fury. Can he just not do it too hard? John Fury’s going to get his wish and we’re going to have a lot of fun in the build-up to the biggest fight in boxing.”
