John Fury challenges ex-world champ to huge Wembley fight – 'I won't back out'

It began when the 46-year-old Cobra questioned the WBC heavyweight champion’s career ahead of his undisputed showdown with Oleksandr Usyk.

Froch said: “What’s he ever done? Who has he actually beaten?”

Fury’s father hit back by calling his fellow Brit a “s******se” and then claimed that he would “kick him up the a***”.

That has not deterred Froch, who then questioned how the Gypsy King was allowed to suffer a cut in sparring, which ultimately led to his fight with Usyk being postponed, so close to fight night.

Now the ever-outspoken Fury senior has come out swinging and wants to settle it the old school way with Froch.

Speaking in a video clip that was posted on Roman Fury‘s Instagram story, John said: “Video to Carl The Snake Froch. You’re having plenty to say mate on your little podcast channel.

“John Fury’s rung the bell for you again, got you plenty of content, plenty of viewing figures that you were after.

“Listen, your mate George Groves said something very interesting. You and me, Wembley Stadium, 93,000 crowd. I’m up for that my friend.


“You’ve had plenty to say. I have. I stand by every word that I’ve said. You don’t like me. Let’s see what you can do about it.

“Hater versus Top Father – that’s what we’ll call this. But, it’s got to make business sense. Because it’s a business, let’s not forget that.

“Get your people to contact me directly… get the contracts drawn up, I will fight you, Wembley Stadium, this year.

“Don’t worry about that. John Fury will not back out of the fight with you my friend.”

Froch latest swipe at Fury came at the weekend as he blamed “sloppy” Fury’s trainer for allowing Croatian heavyweight Argon Smakici to get too close to the champ in sparring.

He said: “I don’t think there’s any excuse for him to get cut. It never happened to me. I used to wear a face guard.

“No elbows can get through so you mitigate getting injured. That’s what you should be doing before a fight of this magnitude – taking massive precautions.

“I’m blaming his trainer, I’m blaming Tyson himself for not taking that precaution, whether you’re uncomfortable in it or not.

“He’s got cut in sparring two weeks before the biggest fight of his life. This is the unification, undisputed heavyweight title fight we’ve all been waiting for.

“At two weeks out he should be keeping his sparring partners at a distance, working on what he needs to work on when he’s fighting Usyk.

“Of course the guys are going to get close to you during sparring, but from the clips I’ve seen Fury was having a bit of a push around and a move, he was looking sloppy.”
