Tyson Fury has been accused of ‘living in a glass house’ by Wladimir Klitschko after the WBC world heavyweight champion called Oleksandr Usyk a ‘little man on steroids’.
A war of words has developed between Fury and British rival Anthony Joshua, who gave up his three world titles to the Ukrainian at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last year.
A future fight with Usyk to decide the undisputed world champion will have to wait until at least the second half of 2022 with Joshua set to face Usyk after activating his rematch clause.
And with Fury set to defend his title against Dillian Whyte, the Gypsy King took aim at both rivals.
“You let a little steroid man come up from middleweight and sit on top of you and take all your belts,” Fury said of Joshua and Usyk.
“It will take a real British Lancaster bomber like me to go relieve the useless little ones… get the belts and bring them back to Britain.”
Klitschko then came to the defense of his compatriot, calling Fury a “hypocrite”.
He added: “You live in a glass house and someone has to take your stones away. It was not long before our fight where you REALLY tested positive. Anyone can google it. With class!!!”
Fury couldn’t help but hit back at his former rival either, having triumphed 12 rounds in Düsseldorf in 2015.
He replied to Klitschko: “Too bad someone can’t be you because you might even land a shot in 12 rounds bum.
“And now Grandfather’s time has taken you away!” Usyk and you could never beat a man like me.
