Tyson Fury has little interest in partaking in blended martial arts, so if Jon Jones needs a bit of him, it must occur in a boxing ring.

That was the message Fury, the boxing heavyweight champion, relayed to Jones, the UFC heavyweight champion, in a video posted Friday on social media.

“I see Jon Jones has piped up,” Fury mentioned earlier than addressing Jones immediately. “Jon, you speak about me in a cage. I’m not a cagefighter, mate. I’m a boxer – one of the best boxer really. So if you wish to come right into a boxing ring to combat me, be my visitor, let me know. You don’t must name anyone else – no Dana, no person. You name me. As a result of it’s a boxing combat, and I’m the boss on this sport.

“You’re an ideal fighter, Jon, however you’re undoubtedly no boxer, that’s for positive.”

Therein lies the dilemma every time a UFC fighter and boxer begin to verbally spar: Jones is tied to a restrictive UFC contract that doesn’t enable him to do something however combat contained in the octagon with out the UFC’s permission whereas Fury isn’t sure by such contractual phrases. So you find yourself with simply speak.

Talking of which, Jones responded to Fury’s retort rapidly on Twitter.

Yesterday, Tyson says, “no man born from a mom can beat me”, as we speak he says “Jon can by no means beat me in a boxing ring”. Yeah I’m glad we bought that clarified. You simply switched your beat up quicker than Travis Barker, spectacular.
