Tyson Fury claimed he was about to throw a punch with Francis Ngannou during their heated feud earlier this week.

The Gypsy King attended a press conference on Friday evening ahead of Ngannou’s clash with Anthony Joshua.

Asked about his future plans, the former UFC champion emphasized that he would like to match Fury again, and also claimed that he felt he deserved to have his hand raised when they first fought in October.

‘One (a win) over Tyson – one more over Tyson, because I (already had) the first one! I have the first and plan to buy the second.

“I’ve been thinking about it, but it’s true!”

The Gypsy King did not respond well to his former opponent's statements on Wednesday

Tyson fired back, calling the 37-year-old a ‘dosser’, before Ngannou insisted Fury’s only chance was due to the rules of boxing restricting his full abilities.

“I’m telling you, your only chance is in the boxing ring, with boxing rules. WIf you get off in front of that ring, you better keep five meters away before I stop you, bfor if I lose it, you will have a very bad time.”

Never one to dismiss such a claim, Fury fired back and insisted the only reason he didn’t fight Ngannou at the press conference was out of respect for Turki Al-Sheikh.

“I can tell you, if he comes out to me, he’s not going to run away from it and that’s a fact.” The WBC champion told it BoxNation.

“What do you think I’m going to do, let him elbow me and punch me in the face and whatever, grab me and break my arm?

“Let me tell you something straight from the heart: if I didn’t have as much respect as I do for Turki Al-Sheikh, I would have stood up recently and punched him, but I didn’t want to cancel another show for Turki .

“He wouldn’t leave the outside and I’ll tell you that. If I had come on set at the recent press conference about him, another show would have been canceled.

“What happens if he got a cut or broke his jaw or his eye socket or whatever? There you go. And I would have been in big trouble too.

“I’d be ready. All the big mouths always run away to do the law when they get fined. So yeah, it was probably an attempted murder charge or something with the useless caseworker. So I’m happy.’

Ngannou defeated Fury but the Gypsy King emerged victorious when the pair clashed in October

When the pair faced off in the ring in October, Ngannou exceeded expectations by pushing Fury to his limits in ten hard-fought rounds.

However, the Gypsy King ultimately emerged victorious that night in Riyadh despite being dropped in the third round.

Fury will face Oleksandr Usyk on May 18, in a fight to determine the heavyweight division’s first undisputed champion since Lennox Lewis defeated Evander Holyfield in 1999.
