Tyson Fury has been mocked on social media by Oleksandr Usyk’s promoter Alex Krassyuk after talks over a unification fight collapsed.
Fury and Usyk were expected to put all four heavyweight belts on the line for a hugely-anticipated showdown at Wembley Stadium on April 29.
However, the two champions were unable to reach a final agreement over the purse split for the rematch and talks were officially called off on Wednesday.
Both camps have played the blamed the other side for scuppering the fight – and Usyk’s chief negotiator Krassyuk took another dig on Saturday.
Using a famous meme of rapper Drake, Krassyuk posted a photoshopped image of Fury turned off by the idea of fighting Usyk, but excited by Derek Chisora and a number of little-known boxers.
It comes after Usyk’s wife Katerina hit out at the Brit, posting a mocked-up picture of a Fury vs Derek Chisora 4 fight poster and calling him the ‘Gyspy Queen’.
Fury, meanwhile, ripped into Usyk in a foul-mouthed tirade on Thursday.
Addressing the Ukrainian on Instagram, Fury said: “Usyk, you little s***house. You proper little s***bag, bogeyed, gappy-teethed, ugly, little rat b******.
“You little slimy f*****, tried all week to get out of it, begging for a rematch like a little girl. You got your rematch and then didn’t even want to fight with that, you little s***house p****.
“Always know, p****, that you were never man enough to tangle with ‘The Gypsy King’ ever in your life, you little s***house. You little 14-stone coward.
“You little s***bag, ya rat little b*****, and your full team know it as well. All the lawyers have got full information you little ugly b******.
“Keep running, fight [Daniel] Dubois at the Copperbox now s***bag, and always know that you or anyone else like you could never tangle with ‘The Gypsy King’ you s***house little coward.”
