Tyson Fury has responded to an exclusive interview with Shannon Briggs, which World Boxing News released on Friday morning.

Speaking to WBN, Briggs accused Fury of running scared and avoiding him despite accepting an offer of next to nothing to fight him.

Shannon Briggs interview with WBN

Briggs had told WBN: “He gave the title up last night at midnight because he didn’t want to fight me, so he wants to avoid me. I heard him say he agreed to the fight. I agreed to fight him for £1, but he won’t even fight me for £1.

“They have done everything possible to keep me out of the game; they said I was crazy – which is true – they’ll do anything they can not to fight me. I’m the best ever champ. LET’S GO CHAMP.

“This has once again proven that I’m running the division. They’re running away from me. I’m coming to the UK in two weeks; I’m going to Manchester. I’m going to look for his house and find out where he lives.

“But I’m not taking this guy seriously; I’m just looking forward to coming back to my second home and putting on a show to build myself back up.

“I’m going to be fighting at the York Hall and then I’ll be fighting every month or two months. I’m going to Scotland, then Ireland, Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, I’m going everywhere, champ.”

Fury didn’t take long to respond by stating: ‘Let’s Go Champ!’ I’m going to send you a contract!. It’s coming your way, so get yourself in shape!’

It was originally thought the fight was all but done for April, although unforeseen delays and Fury’s case with the British Boxing Board of Control and UKAD hampered a deal.

By the sounds of things, both sides are on the same page, and the fight could once again see negotiations re-open shortly.
