Fury sent out a picture of what he calls, ‘all the b**ches in boxing’ which included Wladimir Klitschko, Luis Ortiz, Deontay Wilder and even Eddie Hearn and Tony Bellew.
The latter has been a target for Fury’s fury before when the lineal world champion was live on Channel 5 some years ago and the pair haven’t really seen eye-to-eye in the public domain since then.
Bellew, always one for a good joke, saw the funny side though with his response to Fury over the mock-up.
“Love the fact you made me the smallest and the hottest. You should be careful calling me though son as I’ve shown and proved, I fear NO ONE!” said the former WBC cruiserweight title holder.
At a press conference on Wednesday for Martin Murray’s clash with Gabriel Rosado on Saturday night at the Echo Arena, ‘The Bomber’ revealed he’s still considering his future in the sport following a career-best win over David Haye.
Only a title chance or potentially a rematch with Haye would entice Bellew to carry on, and despite Fury’s obvious contempt, a fight between the two Brits seems unlikely to happen in 2017.
In a later tweet, Fury stated he had nothing bad to say about the Liverpudlian.
