WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and unified world heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk have lit the touch paper for their rivalry which could lead to an undisputed fight early next year.
Usyk was ringside at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium where Fury produced a brutal beatdown of domestic rival Derek Chisora in their trilogy fight which was stopped in round 10.
Following the fight, Fury called out Usyk who then stepped onto the ring apron to engage in an intense head-to-head.

While Usyk stood motionless, Fury couldn't resist but make a few jibes about the WBA, WBO and IBF world heavyweight title holder.
"15 stone little midget beat a body builder, but I ain't a body builder sucker," Fury shouted with a backdrop of screaming fans.
"I'm going to write you off, I've done one Ukrainian in Klitschko and I'll do you as well gappy teeth."
