Fury in Trouble for Antics, Calling Price/Bellew Gay Lovers

Tyson Fury could be punished by the British Boxing Board of Control after making a succession of inflammatory comments about David Price.

Two days after using a TV interview and his Twitter account to belittle his heavyweight rival, Fury tweeted a new expletive-filled insult on Monday directed at the British and Commonwealth champion.

The 24-year-old, who claims to be a born-again Christian, was responding to Price's first-round demolition of Audley Harrison at the Liverpool Echo Arena on Saturday night.

"I'm gonna smash your face in u ****house scouse **** I look in your eyes and c fear! Ill take your sole and give it the devil," read the tweet.

General secretary Robert Smith revealed Fury's comments are being discussed by the BBBofC.

"I'm very disappointed by this. I've already spoken to the chairman (Charles Giles) about it this morning," Smith told Press Association Sport.

"I'm seeing him at an event tonight and we'll discuss it again then."

Fury could be issued with a fine and/or a suspension if the BBBofC decide he should be sanctioned.

In the aftermath of Saturday night, the Mancunian was offered £500,000 by promoter Frank Maloney to renew his rivalry with Price, to whom he lost as an amateur.

In an initial televised outburst, Fury lambasted Price and Maloney and bizarrely suggested fellow Liverpudlian and British light-heavyweight champion Tony Bellew was the 29-year-old's "gay lover".

Fury then posted a video on his Twitter page where he told the 2008 Beijing Olympic bronze medalist: "I'm going to put you in intensive care".

Price is to defend his titles against veteran Matt Skelton on December 8, but outside of the Klitschko brothers or David Haye, Fury is the opponent the boxing public would like to see him face next.

That encounter may be harder to make after the 29-year-old took just 82 seconds to batter Harrison in a highly-impressive performance that indicates he is a genuine heavyweight contender.

However, given the interest and money to be made from such a highly-anticipated domestic showdown, it is certain to happen at some point.

Why are people even talking about Price? he has only fought punching bags and only 14 of them and dude is like 29 yrs. old. Out these two i would pick Fury although i'm not convinced about him either.

Fury is a character! If he ever becomes a top heavyweight he will sell tickets.

Fury is a myth I can't stand the guy, I'll admit he has improved since he shown the world how to hit yourself but I honestly think he's a european level fighter at best - only down to the lack…

[QUOTE=mattr;12608306]So, Fury the Bible bashing, sanctimonious fraud of a "Christian" likes to go on about reading the Bible, etc, yet talks of "feeding Price's soul to the devil". What an absolutely dumb as f**k Pikey moron! Price will destroy this…
