Fury is expected to fight Ukraine's Oleksandr Usyk in a title unification bout next year. Usyk holds the WBA, WBO and IBF titles and was in attendance for Fury's defence against Chisora.

What did Fury say?

Following the fight, The Gypsy King called Usyk into the ring, hurling insults at the Ukrainian fighter as he got closer, The Telegraph reported.

"You are next. Me and you sucker, next – you're getting it," Fury first said.

He then called the champion a 15-stone little midget, saying that he had already beaten one Ukrainian (Klitschko) and would do the same to Usyk as well. Usyk entered the ring and stared down Fury, who then called him a little sausage.

Fury will fight anybody

Fury reiterated that he would fight anyone in the heavyweight division in a bid to prove that he was the best. He also turned his attention to Joe Joyce, an undefeated British boxer who is also tipped to fight for the gold.

"If this guy [Usyk] doesn't want to fight, we can meet at Wembley Stadium," he said to Joyce.
