TYSON FURY has labelled Eddie Heard as a “little t****r” after announcing the Deontay Wilder fight is edging closer to completion.
The Gypsy King has ripped into the Matchroom promoter on social media after the 39-year-old claimed the heavyweight bout between the duo wouldn’t happen.

Fury, 30, took to Instagram to reveal his delight at Hearn not being involved in negotiations in making the “world’s biggest fight.”
The former unified heavyweight champion is preparing to face Francesca Pianeta at Windsor Park next week following his comeback bout against Sefer Seferi.
And should he beat his Italian opponent, a Las Vegas fight against the WBC king is believed to take place in December.
Fury said: “I’m just sat here thinking, isn’t it marvellous that the world’s biggest fight, [Tyson] Fury vs [Deontay] Wilder is going to happen and that smug little t****r Eddie Hearn has nothing to do with it at all.

“He has nothing to do with the world’s biggest fight – or his little puppet on the string the fighter he’s got [Joshua].
“They’re not involved in the biggest fight the world has ever seen, between the two biggest heavyweights on the planet.
“The two most controversial – most outspoken heavyweights out there – both over 6ft 6, both talkers, one Brit. one American.
“Isn’t it marvellous that this fight is going to happen and little Eddie ain’t got nothing to do with it.
