Fury: I’ll Floor Tony Bellew
Tyson Fury has fundamentally ruled out a fight with Tony Bellew due to fears he would “damage him properly” and then “feel bad for the rest of my life”.
Bellew named Fury as a possible opponent and claimed he would beat him after demolishing David Haye inside five rounds in their bitter rematch earlier this month.
But Fury, who is primed to make his return to the ring after a two-and-a-half-year hiatus on June 9, insisted he has no desire to fight Bellew as the Evertonian is considerably smaller and doesn’t belong in the ring with him.
“To be honest and this is me speaking very honestly and openly, I don’t want to fight Tony Bellew,” Fury told FightHype.
“The reason being, he is a family man and he has got a wife and kids and I want him to stay healthy and stay boxing, earn a few quid and go home easy to his family.
“But if he steps in the ring with the Gypsy King and I unleash hell’s fire on him, he’s only a small man and I could damage and hurt him properly.”
