Tyson Fury has called out Oleksandr Usyk after defeating Derek Chisora this evening (Saturday 3 December) at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.
So much for that short-lived retirement, eh Tyse?
Chisora said everyone wanted to see Fury take on Usyk in Saudi Arabia, prompting Fury to storm over to his rival, referring to him as a 'little b***h'.
"You're next," he said.
"Me and you."
Fury called him a 'p***y' and 'beta bodybuilder', continuing: "Let's get it on, b***h... You may laugh now, but I will end this little sucker. I will end you."
He added: "What you gonna do? Are you gonna do something? You’re gonna do f**k all, you little sausage."
Fury then vowed to take on Joe Joyce if Usyk wasn't willing to get into the ring with him.
Fury, 34, took on Chisora, 38, in front of a sold-out crowd - walking out to a mashup of 'Three Lions (Football's Coming Home)' by David Baddiel, Frank Skinner, and The Lightning Seeds, Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds' 'Red Right Hand' (yep, the Peaky Blinders theme tune) and 'Mr Brightside' by The Killers.
Chisora had an undeniably shaky start after Fury came in with all guns blazing.
Many fans assumed the one-sided fight would be over fairly quickly, but Chisora was able to persevere for an impressive 10 rounds before the fight was brought to an end by the referee.
As a result, Fury was crowned winner by technical knockout, retaining his WBC heavyweight title.
Fury had confirmed his retirement from boxing after beating Dillian Whyte back in April, but it wasn’t long before he inevitably announced his return to the ring.
Speaking The Sun ahead of today’s fight, he said of his brief hiatus: “I was very bored. It was a short retirement.
“Paris wanted me out of the house. She’s happy I’m back.”
Speaking about his return, Fury added: “My real reason is I need to keep myself well in my mind.
“When you come across someone in their early or mid-20s who is fighting because they need to get off the streets and it’s do or die, then you have a problem.
“There’s nothing that I can achieve, I’ve won every belt there is to win.
“I’ve not got any thoughts. I’ve fought for a lot of things in my life.
“I suppose fighting for sanity is every bit as good as fighting for all that s**t.”
