The pair met in the ring for a stare down following Fury’s win over Chisora, and words have been exchanged since.

Usyk released numerous videos in which he’s taunted Fury by calling him ‘belly’.

In each video, the Ukrainian can be seen pointing towards his stomach and shouting: “Hey, belly, I’m coming for you.”

Usyk has also said: “Fury, you talk about greatness in boxing.

“But, at the same time, you say, ‘Give me a lot of money’.

“Greatness in boxing is not determined by money. Greatness comes from a victorious path.

“You say that I avoid you, but I never have. In fact, I have even come to you.

“I am ready to box you even without any prize money.”

Fury has said: “Tyson Fury here, WBC heavyweight number one. Usyk, calling out ‘The Gypsy King’ with your pathetic little call outs, dosser.

“Rabbit, I’m coming for you, rabbit, you’re getting it, rabbit.

“And I’ll tell you what else, I’m gonna bust you up real bad you little middleweight.

“I’m going to slap you into a big pile of tattoos, sucker. Come on!”

Fury has recently told his fans that he is going to stop trash-talking on social media and focus on training.

He said: “Hi guys, as fun as it’s been over the last few days terrorising Usyk and his team, tomorrow I’m going to knuckle down into training camp.

“And I’ll be doing a blackout as I always do on social media. Nav will be running my Instagram account, keeping you all updated on my training progress and how everything is going.

“April 29th is definitely a worker, I will see you all on the night. Tune in or be there or be square.

“This is the biggest event in British boxing history, the fight of the century.
