Tyson Fury undoubtedly has the gift of the gab.
In the past, he has treated boxing fans to lines such as: “Ich Bin Tyson Fury, der Sexymeister from Great Britain,” while in Germany fighting Wladimir Klitschko.
But “The Gypsy King” wasn’t in his best trash-talking form when he appeared on Barstool Sport’s Sundae Conversation with Caleb Pressley.
Pressley introduced a segment to test Fury’s trash talk where he would throw an insult at him and then the Brit would have to respond with a comeback.
“You have a stupid face,” Pressley said to open.
And Fury replied: “You too.”
“Okay…” Pressley said as an awkward silence filled the room and the segment and episode quickly ended.
It’s a far cry from the energetic Fury we saw recently at the press conference for his upcoming fight against Francis Ngannou on October 28 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Fury referred to Ngannou’s “corey”, as he addressed his opponent, saying: “He’s a nice boy, I like him.”
And then came the immaturity with Fury’s next comment, saying: “He (Ngannou) probably has a big core.”
“The Gypsy King” then jokingly chanted, “Take it out! Take it out,” as Ngannou smiled and the room burst into laughter.
