Tyson Fury blasts claims he has only 'beaten a bunch of tomato cans' and roars 'I'm a dragon slayer'

TYSON FURY has blasted criticism he has only fought "a bunch of tomato cans" and declared himself the "dragon slayer" of heavyweight boxing.

The Gypsy King is still waiting for a date for his trilogy fight against Deontay Wilder after battering the American into his first-ever loss.

But the WBC champ has warned he won't wait around forever for Wilder and his team to agree to a date.

Fury was interviewed on American podcast Keyshawn, Jwill and Zubin.

And host Keyshawn Johnson seemed keen to question his boxing record.

Johnson asked the 32-year-old undefeated champ: "Tyson, what if I look at your record and say you fought a bunch of tomato cans, then what?"

Fury fired back: "Listen, you can have your opinion but it means nothing because facts are facts and I've beaten the only two undefeated long-reigning champions.

"I'm only the second man in history after Muhammad Ali to beat two champions with more than ten defences under their belt."

Despite that passionate retort, Johnson seemed keen to wind up the 6ft 9ins Morecambe scrapper by suggesting fellow Brit Anthony Joshua was better.

The pair have agreed to have two fights next year.

The 48-year-old Californian asked: "What if I told you, you wasn’t number one and I put Anthony Joshua ahead of you?"

Fury fired back: "I don't have to prove myself, I'm the Lineal heavyweight champion for the last five years.

"[I'm] undefeated, these guys have been beat. There's only one undefeated champion and he goes by the name of the 'Gypsy King'.

"There used to be a three-headed monster until the other two monsters got slain by the slayer.

"The heavyweight dragon slayer is me, Tyson Fury."

Fury has once again stirred Wilder to get on with accepting their third fight.

The initial scrap was scheduled for July 25 before being postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

There was talk it could be rescheduled for December but talk has since gone quiet from the American's camp.

And now the Fury has attempted to reignite the feud by aiming a jab at him on Twitter.

He wrote: "Where you at mush? The clock is ticking!!

"I’m not gonna wait forever!!! There are other bums in the division that I want to eat for breakfast."

Fury is referring to WBC mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte who takes on hard-hitting Russian Alexander Povetkin on Saturday in Eddie Hearn's backyard.
