Tyson Fury has launched a sensational verbal attack on rival David Price.

The undefeated Morecambe heavyweight said he would do "serious harm" to the Olympic Bronze medalist after promoter Frank Maloney offered Fury £500,000 to fight his man.

Price, who knocked out Audley Harrison in just 82 seconds on Saturday night, laughed off the rant as “round the bend”.

Speaking ringside on Channel 5 as Hennessy Sports stablemate James Degale retained his European super-middleweight title against Hadillah Mohoumadi, Fury hit out at Harrison, Price and Maloney before saying Price had a “gay lover” in Liverpool light-heavyweight Tony Bellew.

“To be honest, Harrison is the biggest bum inside boxing," said Fury, who was warned to mind his language on a couple of occasions.

“And my reaction to David Price and Frank Maloney calling me out, I'll fight David Price any day of the week.

“You plumber from Liverpool, it's personal between me and you and I'm going to do you some serious harm you big, stiff idiot.

“It's going to need 10 plumbers when I've finished with you. You're getting it – for sure. Call me out, call me any names and you are getting it.”

The Morecambe man wasn't finished there, posting a video on Twitter later that night.

“Frank Maloney, David Price, I'm contacting your office in the morning you little midget," he said.

“If you haven't got the half a million what you've been bragging about you're in deep trouble.

“David Price I'm going to put you in intensive care."

The Liverpudlian had become the mandatory challenger for Fury's British and Commonwealth titles early this year but the Morecambe man elected to vacate his titles, with Price defeating Sam Sexton to win the belts in May.

“He’s round the bend. I don’t know what to make of that,” said Price, whose demolition of Harrison was his first defence of the titles.

“He cannot handle other people getting praise and credit and that’s why he spat his dummy out on TV and made an absolute fool of himself by the sound of it.

“The man’s brilliant for me because, you know what, he’s going to make me a lot of money.

“And it’s not going to be a difficult job taking his head off his shoulders because I’ll knock him out like I knocked out Audley Harrison.”

Fury is scheduled to fight on December 1 in Belfast, with Price taking on Matt Skelton on December 8.
