The talk of the boxing world this summer has been the proposed heavyweight super-fight between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder.
Fans have been clamouring for a unification of the division, but whilst it looked close at one point, an announcement two weeks ago that AJ would defend his belts against Russian challenger Alexander Povetkin in September put an end to those talks for now.
But the bombshell dropped by Tyson Fury and his promoter Frank Warren this week that they are close to finalising a fight with the WBC world champion Wilder, possibly for December 2018.
Warren really stirred the pot though when he was involved in a blazing row on talkSPORT with Tony Bellew surrounding the details of the supposed contract offer between Joshua and Wilder.
Warren was adamant that he had seen a deal that had guaranteed AJ $80 million for two fights against the 'Bronze Bomber', claiming that Wilder's manager Shelly Finkel had showed him the documents.
Bellew - who fights under Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn's Matchroom Boxing banner - refused to believe Warren though, claiming that his version of events 'didn't happen' and that Joshua would have almost certainly taken $50 million that was guaranteed from one fight if it were actually offered to him.
Boxing fans didn't know what to believe, but you just knew Fury would eventually get involved in the drama, and he had some scathing words for the Liverpudlian.
Speaking to IFL TV following his open workout at Ricky Hatton's Manchester gym, Fury stated: "I reckon Tony Bellew's a little pu**y and needs to shut his mouth.
"Frank's 70 years old, and if he keeps on going he'll have to have a straightener, and he doesn't get on the phone to me being cheeky does he? But he can do it to a 70-year-old can he?
"It is what it is. They're just s**thouses, aren't they? But saying the deal wasn't there, I know for a fact the money was there.
"My lawyer Robert Davies is very good friends with Al Haymon and Shelly Finkel, and he's seen proof of funds, and he wouldn't tell me a lie."
When asked about potentially fighting Bellew though, Fury shot down any chance of that happening.
"I'm not interested in Tony Bellew, i've got Pianeta to deal with and then i've got Wilder to deal with," stated the 'Furious One'.
"I've got bigger fish to fry. He's like a five-pound fish, and these [Pianeta and Wilder] are like 12-pound fishes."
