WWE champion Drew McIntyre has fired back at the recent statements from WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

A few days, Fury took verbal aim in the direction of McIntyre.

Fury made his WWE debut back in October of 2019, when he traveled to Saudi Arabia and beat company star Braun Strowman by countout.

Following that fight, Fury had expressed his desire to face the WWE champion at the time, Brock Lesnar.

Lesnar was unseated earlier this year at Wrestlemania, by McIntyre.

Fury, who is slated to defend his title against Deontay Wilder in a trilogy fight on December 19, is very eager to have further matches in the future with WWE.

And 'The Gypsy King' certainly wants a match against McIntyre, which both athletes feel would become a major event in the UK, due to their respective followings among local fans.

"Been sitting on the train on my own after a long, busy weekend and I'm thinking about the people that I want to punch in the face. The first one that springs to mind is a big fella called Drew McIntyre. Now Drew, you've been having quite a bit to say about me lately. I love to punch your face in honestly," Fury said.

"So grow a pair, step up to the plate, like I say to your mate AJ, and come and fight the master. Me. This is an official challenge video to Drew McIntyre, the WWE heavyweight champion. I already knocked your pal out, Braun Strowman, I'll do the same to you. Bring it."

Fury's statements got back to McIntyre, who is currently on the WWE sidelines with an injury.

McIntyre has expressed interest in facing Fury in a scripted wrestling match or some type of boxing match.

"I'm not one of the normal bums you pick to fight, I'm not some punching bag getting paid to turn up and lose. Nice timing by the way, even with a fractured jaw I'm pretty confident I could do twelve rounds with your pillow fists. Nice try, ‘King,’" McIntyre said.
