With the Haye vs Bellew fight now cancelled/postponed, British boxer, Tyson Fury, came out on Instagram and called out Tony Bellew to take him on next year in May.
Fury, 29, has not fought since defeating Wladimir Klitschko almost two years ago and is back in the gym hoping to make a comeback next year.
On Instagram, Fury had a message for Eddie Hearn and Tony Bellew.
Before the news of the Haye/Bellew fight being cancelled, Fury went on to Instagram with his ‘comeback list’, showing the boxers he would be happy to take on as he looks to have three fights in 2018.
The list included Dereck Chisora, Tony Bellew, Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder and Joseph Parker, with many of those names already having war of words with the ‘Gypsy King’.
Fury also called out Shannon Briggs, telling the 45 year old that he would “smash his teeth in”, with Briggs responding on Twitter.

It seems that all that these boxers are doing recently is calling each other out, with many not even in a position to do so. Fury is looking for his next challenge and most fans want to see him take on Anthony Joshua as the two have been trading insults via social media for almost 2 years.
Tony Bellew is yet to respond to Fury as Matchroom are attempting to set another date for Haye vs Bellew. If that fight does not happen, Bellew could take on Fury at some point next year but the sooner fight for Bellew could be with Dillian Whyte, who has also stated he would be happy to fill in for David Haye.
