Fury Sr emerged from the violent altercation with a cut on his head and blood streaming down his face while the team member in question, Stanislav Stepchuk, sported a small gash of his own.

Before he could even wipe the blood from his face, he was already giving interviews – and he had a few choice words for Bellew.

“You see Tony Bellew? He’ll get a headbutt like (Stepchuk) just got if he gets around me,” he told the assembled media in reference to the fact that Bellew had recently picked Usyk to beat Fury.

Speaking for the first time since the incident, Bellew called in to talkSPORT Drive with Andy Goldstein and Darren Bent on Tuesday afternoon, to have his say.


“Nobody’s going to headbutt me, period. I made my predictions, that’s what I get paid to do,” Bellew began.

“I am not afraid of any man and no man will force it on me. Understand this, for every action there is a reaction.

“It was very weird watching it yesterday because there was a guy sparring with him who was the same size and he didn’t want to headbutt him.

“But he felt the need to headbutt the kid in the group, which I found quite disturbing to be honest.”

“It’s embarrassing, if my dad behaved like that at a press conference I would pull him up and tell him.

“This can’t happen, it’s a very bad image for boxing.

“I’m actually surprised that this was allowed to continue and happen, but it is what it is. It’s a walking, talking disability.”

The former cruiserweight world champion then took aim at Fury Sr’s disappointing 13-fight (8-4-1) professional boxing career.

“I don’t need to call John Fury, I accomplished more in 60 seconds of my boxing career than John Fury did in his life,” Bellew added.

“We couldn’t even talk about him in the same breath as me.

“I’ve never put myself out there, but just because something slipped out of your head and became one of the greatest heavyweights in the world doesn’t mean you can validate your opinion of every other fighter .

“You don’t have the first idea of ​​what it means to be a championship-minded fighter.

“Henry Akinwande handed you the shit, now get over it.

“I try to be as respectful as possible, but he needs to keep my name out of his mouth.

“I’m not afraid of any man and I include him in that… Unless he learns a ton of wrestling and jiu-jitsu tomorrow, I have no fear.”
