Tyson Fury’s dad has threatened to smash Dana White after the UFC president dismissed his son’s chances in the Octagon.
The Gypsy King called out heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou and sparkled the debate over his possible career in the UFC.
White said he would welcome Tyson Fury to the UFC but Fury’s dad did not take kindly to his comments.
John Fury told iFL TV: “I could probably smash Dana White with one punch. How can he write my son off like that? Let him talk to me like that. I’ll fight him. Keep my son’s name out of your mouth. How does he know about smashing anybody when Tyson comes from a smashing family, you know what I’m saying?
“When I can probably smash Dana White with one punch, you know what I’m saying? So how can he write my son off like that? You can’t write a man off with Tyson’s ability or heart or will to win, and he knows that. He’s talking stupid.”
He continued: “Let him talk to me like that. I’ll fight him. Match me up with him tonight, you know what I’m saying? Because I believe I’m the best 54-year-old man in the world. I’m the fittest, I know that, and I’m the best 54-year-old man on the planet. I’m going to prove it anytime, anywhere, for free or for money. So let him take that in your pipe and smoke it. I mean that, mate. Keep my son’s name out of your mouth. If it’s not good, don’t talk about him.”
