Tyson Fury challenges Deontay Wilder to bare-knuckle street fight in New York

Tyson Fury Press Conference

Tyson Fury has made an instant impact after touching down in the US to promote his upcoming fight against Tom Schwarz on June 15.

Fury has offered to settle his rivalry with Deontay Wilder on the streets of New York.

The heavyweight pair fought to a controversial draw last December where many observers felt Fury beat the American, after out-boxing him for the majority of the fight and frustrating his opponent.

The pair had been set to secure an immediate rematch, before both fighters signed deals with rival American broadcasters - Fury with ESPN and Wilder with Showtime.

The British boxer opted for a fight against the relatively unknown Schwarz on June 15, while Wilder fought Dominic Breazeale and knocked the American out in the first round on Saturday night.

The ‘Gypsy King’ is entering the final stages of preparations for the fight, but declared he would be willing to take a scrap in the ‘Big Apple’.

Fury told TMZ: “Wilder is a bum, he’s got a puncher’s chance – that’s it. Like I said, Wilder is a massive dosser, and he works for me.

“That’s all Wilder is, he’s a big bum dosser, bum city – any time, any place, anywhere. When we fight again, I promise he’ll be looking at the stars.

"If he's got anything to say, come see me.

"We'll have a bare knuckle fight in Times Square this evening."

When asked if he had a message for the WBC heavyweight champion, the Brit replied: “Deontay Wilder, go suck my nuts.

On a possible rematch in an official capacity, Fury hinted that we are unlikely to see it until next year.

"This rematch has got to happen, but it won't be in May, June, July or August.

"This fight, I'm being told, is likely to happen in March or April next year."
