TONY BELLEW revealed Tyson Fury stunned him with a name and informed him: “I wish to punch your face in”.
The Bomber has been verbally sparring Fury and referred to as for a struggle with the previous heavyweight champion after the postponement of his rematch with David Haye.
And the Merseysider has already spoken to Fury a couple of struggle which promoter Eddie Hearn has admitted may very well be a ‘easy deal’.
Bellew mentioned: “I spoke to him a short while again. We had a chat and we went over a couple of issues and that was it.
“There wasn’t actually a lot to say apart from ‘I wish to struggle you, you wish to struggle me. You are Ring belt journal champion, I like your belt, I wish to punch your face in.
“In his defence, it is like, ‘hear you have not obtained an opportunity, I will punch your face in.'”
