Tyson Fury has gotten into another Twitter war. This time around, his target was his former opponent, Wladimir Klitschko. ‘Dr. Steelhammer’ came to Oleksandr Usyk’s defense and tried to trash talk Fury after ‘The Gypsy King’ called out ‘The Cat’.

Per Michael Benson, Fury put an Instagram story and wrote, “@klitschko pity that someone cant be you as you could even land a shot in 12 rounds bum, & now grandad time has taken you away! @usykaa & you together could never beat a man like me!!! #gypsyking” 

He also posted a video of his belts and said, “Wladimir you’ve got some cheek to come back after all these years and open your big mouth. You never landed a punch. I took all your belts off look. These used to belong to you mosh. Now they belong to me. You useless dosser, keep on dreaming.” 

In that video, he wrote, “@klitschko is another Ukrainian dosser, dreaming that @usykaa could do something to me! I specialize in flatning dossers!”

Given how things ended, it is safe to say that Tyson Fury won that round 10-8. It is surprising to see Klitschko trash-talking Fury as he refrained from verbal antics during his career. Instead, he let his fists do all the talking.

What started the Wladimir Klitschko vs Tyson Fury banter?

It all started off when ‘The Gypsy King’ called out the unified heavyweight champion of the world, Oleksandr Usyk. In response to this, Wladimir Klitschko told Fury that he lives in a glass house and then accused him of failing a drug test before their fight.
