Fury later hit back: “I wanna meet him head on, ‘mano a mano’ in the centre of the ring.
“Let’s make it a Tommy Hearns vs Marvin Hagler type of fight.
“I’ll meet you Deontay in the middle of the ring, February 22, I won’t be running, you won’t have to look anywhere for me.
“Just watch out for the right hands because you’re going to sleep in two rounds.”
