Tyson Fury has fired back at Deontay Wilder over criticism of his upcoming fight against Otto Wallin.
The self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' is slated to return to action versus southpaw Otto Wallin in Las Vegas on September 14 before rematching Wilder for the WBC heavyweight world title.
The undefeated-American pulled no punches on his thoughts about Fury vs. Wallin.
:flushed: Deontay Wilder on Tyson Fury vs Otto Wallin: "He keeps pulling out all these night shift graveyard workers... Bulls*** at it's best. No Englishman's coming over here, saving America with Tom Schwarz and Otto whoever he is, talking about 'he's the best' with an invisible belt."- Michael Benson (@MichaelBensonn) August 4, 2019
But Fury has responded on social media in typically hilarious fashion.
"This is a big kiss to Deontay Wilder. AKA THE BIG jealous DOSSER. #BUMCITY #imthekingoftheworld," he wrote on Instagram accompanied with a picture of himself puckering up for a kiss.
Wilder, who's set to face Luis Ortiz in November, called Wallin a "graveyard worker" and described the heavyweight bout as "bulls***" in a scathing rant.
"He keeps pulling out all these night shift graveyard workers... Bulls*** at its best," he said.
"No Englishman's coming over here, saving America with Tom Schwarz and Otto whoever he is, talking about 'he's the best' with an invisible belt.
"First of all, Fury came with his last fight against Tom Schwarz, he went to Vegas, came out with this clown outfit on, (talking about) how he's going to save America and make America great again.
"There were only 5,000 fans in the audience, but he swears up and down he was the 'it factor' to our fight, it's proof in the pudding that he's irrelevant in America."
Fury returned to the win column following his controversial draw with Wilder by stopping Tom Schwarz in June, while Wilder annihilated Dominic Breazeale in the very first round.
Wilder vs. Fury 2 is reportedly set for February 2020.
