Tyson Fury has fought back at Eddie Hearn's latest remarks by joking the Matchroom Boxing promoter has a "man crush" on him. 

The Gypsy King has branded Anthony Joshua's promoter as a 't*t' and 'fanboy' in the most recent war of words, rooting from Barry Hearn's criticism of Fury's upcoming fight with Tom Schwarz.

Hearn Sr was critical of Fury's choice of opponent last week  which prompted a video response from the former heavyweight champion telling his son to 'give him another can of beer and put him back in the cupboard.'

Fury addressed the situation to Behind The Gloves, comedically stating: "It’s good banter and Eddie loves taking a bit of stick from me.

"He’s a fanboy. Eddie Hearn’s a t*t. He knows that, and I know that, and the rest of the world knows that. Eddie Hearn’s got a ‘man crush’ on me, that’s all it is. When somebody fancies somebody, they do nasty things to them all the time and they talk s*** about them."

Joshua defends his three titles against Andy Ruiz Jr, Jarrell 'Big Baby' Miller's replacement, at Madison Square Garden two weeks before Fury's bout with Swarz.

The 30-year-old has said he'll take Hearn for a drink and ringside ticket for his fight next time he sees him, whilst once again backing the quality of his upcoming opponent.

He continued: "Whenever you see Eddie Hearn saying all the bulls*** about me and then you get me responding back to him. It’s because he’s got a ‘man crush’ on me and obviously he fancies he, doesn’t he? Don’t you, Eddie?

"I’m gonna take him out for a drink next time I see him. I’ll even give him a ringside ticket to my next fight in Vegas. You know what, it’s jealousy. Eddie Hearn can’t fight. Tom Schwarz would hit Eddie with one jab and a left hook and he’d put Eddie out for a week."

The boxing heavyweight division seems like it is at the strongest point it has been at for a long time with the likes of Fury, Joshua, Wilder and Whyte all in the headlines. It's certainly a shame to see none of the big names facing each other, but hopefully by the end of next year that could very well change.
