With his December 1st showdown vs. WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder looming, the man who calls himself the “lineal champion of the world”, Tyson Fury, continues to draw headlines.

What was obvious, during his three-city press tour with Wilder, is that Fury may have taken some verbal barbs and tried to instigate Wilder, but he genuinely likes the guy. That doesn’t seem to be the case for some of the people he has been targeting lately in social media.

This past weekend in Chicago, unbeaten heavyweight contender Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller put on a spectacular performance on the DAZN streaming app, as he demolished former light-heavyweight and cruiserweight champion Tomasz Adamek. Miller tore through Adamek, but given the fact that his opponent was outweighed by nearly 100 pounds, and is 41 years old, you can understand some of the negative backlash that has come his way.

One such critic is Fury himself, who took to Twitter, in a video clip posted by Michael Benson, as he issued a challenge to Miller. Fury is presently locked away in Big Bear, California as he trains for Wilder, and would love for Miller to pay him a visit.

“This is a call out video to the fat boy, Jarrell Miller. Get yourself up here, bring $100,000 and me and you will have a spar. Winner take all, cash. I put you down seven times in Lancaster, Lancashire. I’ll put you down 10 times in Big Bear, California, you fat prick. Bring yourself up here anytime, anyplace and anywhere. If you want to spar or if you want a bare knuckle fight, get yourself up here, you fat prick.”

And so too does the verbal banter between Fury and Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn continue. Hearn has been skeptical of Fury in the press in recent weeks, questioning whether he will still go through with his fight with Wilder, as well as calling Fury an “unentertaining” fighter.

So Fury took to Twitter again, claiming he was there to “shut a little tit of a boxing promoter up”, and revealed details of Hearn’s initial, three-fight offer to Fury. In a text message from September of last year, Hearn stated the following.

“It was pleasure to sit down with you in Monaco – I’ve been thinking a lot about us working together and I’m very excited. It’s a deal that would blow the boxing World right up.

Further to our discussions I outline below a 3 fight proposal for you to work promotionally with Matchroom and to box on Sky Sports Box Office.”

Fury also revealed that Hearn was offering him three million pounds for the first fight, roughly four million U.S. dollars.

It’s obvious that Hearn is just playing his role of a promoter by trying to discredit Fury. Hearn’s cash cow is IBF/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, and he has to look out for his best interests, even if means badmouthing Fury.

Such is the way of boxing. But it’s good to see Fury swing back with punches and comments of his own.
