Tyson Fury has been accused by Wladimir Klitschko of “living in a glass house” after WBC heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk called “a little steroid man”.
A war of words has developed between Fury and British rival Anthony Joshua, who gave up his three world titles to the Ukrainian at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last year.
A future fight with Usyk to decide the undisputed world champion will have to wait at least until the second half of 2022 as Joshua will face Usyk after activating his rematch clause.
And with Fury ready to defend his title against Dillian Whyte, the Gypsy King has set his sights on both rivals.
“You had a little steroid middleweight man come up and sit over you and take all your belts off,” Fury said of Joshua and Usyk.
“It’s going to take a real British Lancaster bomber like me to go off and relieve the useless little ones… get the belts and bring them back to Britain.”
Klitschko then jumped to his compatriot’s defense, calling Fury a “hypocrite”.
He added: “You live in a glass house and someone has to take your bricks away. It’s not that long ago that you ACTUALLY tested positive before our fight. Anyone can google it. Stay classy!!!”
Fury also couldn’t resist hitting back at his former rival after triumphing over 12 rounds in Dusseldorf in 2015.
He replied to Klitschko: “Too bad someone can’t be you as you could even land a shot in 12 rounds.
“And now the grandpa time has taken you with you! Usyk and you together could never beat a man like me.”
