Love him or loath him, the camaraderie that comes with Tyson 'The Gypsy King' Fury has been sorely missed by boxing and boxing fans alike.

After his comeback fight against the unknown Albanian cruiserweight Sefer Seferi went according to plan last weekend, the Manchester-born boxer is already looking ahead to a 'mega-fight' against one of the heavyweight champions.

Anthony Joshua claimed the WBO title after out-pointing Joseph Parker back in April of this year, a belt that Fury took off of Wladimir Klitschko in 2015, before he took to the Scarface life.

But today, the only heavyweight title that Anthony Joshua isn't in possession of, is Deontay Wilder's WBA one.

Wilder has been calling for a unification bout with the three-belted Anthony Joshua for some time, but he may first have to fend off a fiesty Tyson Fury.

"I have more fear factor than Mike Tyson had" - Deontay Wilder.

It's a bold statement from Wilder, 33, and obviously Fury, who's father actually named him after the boxing legend Mike Tyson, responded to Wilder's comments on social media.

“You’re a dreamer... I don’t know why you're taking the great Mike Tyson’s name in vain really.

"You keep mentioning him, but he’s not even in your era. But, however, there is another Tyson in your era and I’ll stop you in five rounds you bum.

"You big lanky, skinny-legged dosser, you chinless bum. I’ll put my fist right through you."

Ah Tyson, you have a way with words to be envious of.

Fury's comeback to heavyweight boxing continues on August 18 where he will fight on the undercard of Carl Frampton v Luke Jackson at Windsor Park.

It is not yet known who he will fight, but Fury, 29, will surely have a couple more opponents to overcome before he is granted a shot at either Anthony Joshua or Deontay Wilder.
