Oleksandr Usyk smiled his way through insults and bold fight predictions from a cheeky young Tyson Fury fan on Saturday night.
The Gypsy King defended his WBC heavyweight title with a dominant display against Derek Chisora in their trilogy fight at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
After stopping Chisora inside ten rounds, Fury called out Usyk and insulted his appearance throughout his rant while the WBO, WBA, and IBF champion casually stared him down.
“Where’s Usyk the rabbit? ‘Eh rabbit? Usyk you’re next you little b****,” Fury said.
“You are next. Me and you next. You’re next. Rabbit! P****! 15-stone little midget bodybuilder. Well, I ain’t a bodybuilder, I’m going to write you off.
“I’ve already done one Ukrainian in [Wladimir] Klitschko, didn’t I? And I’ll do you as well, gappy teeth. You ugly little man. Let’s get it on b****.
“You may laugh now but I’ll end this little sucker. I’ll end you. You little sucker. What are you gonna do? You’re gonna do f*** all you little sausage.”
With a monster fight for all the heavyweight marbles seemingly set for 2023, Usyk headed backstage only to receive more insults when his IFL TV interview was hijacked by a young Fury fan.

The brave youngster, named Mikey, intervened when the Ukrainian was asked if he genuinely believes an undisputed fight will happen next, he said: “Do you think you can have Tyson Fury? Do you reckon you can beat him?”
Before the question had even been translated, Mikey took a leaf out of Fury’s book by insulting Usyk’s teeth and suggesting he must get them fixed before the pay-per-view blockbuster takes place.
With a smirk on his face, he added: “You’re going to have to get your teeth done first, obviously. Tyson would have you in the first round all day long.”
The gasps of those watching the exchange quickly turned to laughter when a member of Usyk’s team suggested the little loudmouth squares off against the champ’s 10-year-old son in a fight.
A clearly amused Usyk dismissed talk of Fury finishing in the first round and told Mikey ‘It’s your dream’ before the camera cuts off and the interaction presumably ends.
The respective teams of Fury and Usyk will now thrash out a contract ahead of a fight that will hopefully crown the first four-belt champion in heavyweight history and the first undisputed king since Lennox Lewis.
