John Fury called out by boxing fans for 'embarrassing' thing he did to Mike Tyson after headbutt incident

John Fury called out by boxing fans for 'embarrassing' thing he did to Mike Tyson after headbutt incident

Boxing fans have hit out at John Fury's moment with Mike Tyson.

John Fury has been ruthlessly slammed by boxing fans for his 'embarrassing' exchange with Mike Tyson.

'Big' John grabbed plenty of headlines on Monday as Oleksandr Usyk's team clashed with his son's entourage ahead of their undisputed showdown on Saturday.

He headbutted a member of Usyk's camp and ended up doing damage to himself as he bled from his head, with Saudi Arabia authorities making a decision following his moment of madness.

The 'Gypsy King' had a priceless reaction after witnessing blood gushing from his father's head.

After the incident, a video of John's callout of boxing legend Tyson emerged online, followed by a clip of his meeting with the former world heavyweight champion.

One video shows the 59-year-old calling for a showdown against the American icon while a second clip shows his interaction with him.

He's been called out by fight fans on social media for 'showing different energy' to the 57-year-old after calling for a fight.

One X user slammed: "He's all show it’s embarrassing."

A second tweeted: "Big John is afraid of Mike Tyson and some."

A third added: "Tyson couldn’t wait to get away from him."

A fourth said: "Good old fashioned gobsh*te bully."

A fifth wrote: "John's a big dope."

Another commented: "Big bully who has come off worse from nutting a kid. Embarrassing!"

Tyson will return to action on July 20 when he faces Jake Paul.

While he's teased another fight after his pro bout with 'The Problem Child', a showdown against John seems unlikely.

Speaking after his headbutt, John apologised for his behaviour.

"Sincere apologies to everybody involved," he said. "It's just the way we are. Emotions and tensions are running high. He was a very disrespectful fella. If you come close in a fighting man's space, you're gonna cop for something.

"What matters to me is respect for my son and he wasn't showing any of it. He mentioned my son and that was it, so he had to have it. It doesn't bother me [bleeding], it's what we live for, we're fighting people. That's a regular occurrence to me."
