Hot on the heels of an eye-popping interview with Tyson Fury, podcaster True Geordie trended on social media over his grilling of the heavyweight champion.
Geordie, real name Brian Davis, asked hard-hitting questions as he went in on Fury when stating his truth about a fight with Derek Chisora.
Many of the UK boxing community don’t see the point of a third clash with Chisora when Fury handled him so easily the second time in 2014.
The first encounter in 2011 was a little more challenging for a greener Fury. However, “The Gypsy King” still prevailed there too.
Now, eight years on, Fury is charging Pay Per View in the United Kingdom when Chisora recently suffered the twelfth loss of his career.
Fury began the chat looking a bit uninterested, maybe due to what Davis had said about him previously.
They chatted for a good fifteen minutes before the True Geordie interview began to take a turn for the worst.
Geordie then said: “Big thanks for taking the interview, Tyson. I understand where you are coming from.
“I appreciate that you and Derek are legends of British boxing. All respect – in that sense, and I wish you the best of luck, mate.”
Fuming, Fury tried to end the call instantly, but when he couldn’t turn the phone off, he exploded into a rant.
“I think you’re a tosser. You little tosspot. And I won’t be doing any more interviews with you, little tosspot, bearded, bald-headed tosser.”
Fury still can’t switch off the interview but eventually does with a few more choice names for Geordie.
Looking slightly rattled, True Geordie was thankful the interview wasn’t face-to-face.
“Well, that went well. Have you ever been cussed out by the heavyweight champion of the world? Probably not.
“I’m very glad I did this one on video call because that could’ve been a painful end to my life.”
Whichever way you slice it, there is a lot of discontent about this fight.
