Tyson Fury Accepts Dana Whites Challenge to Fight Cain Velasquez

Heavyweight boxer, Tyson Fury has accepted the offer of a fight laid down by UFC President, Dana White a few weeks ago and continues to taunt UFC heavyweight champion, Cain Velasquez in the process, calling him a “little boy” who doesn’t want to fight him.

Fury, speaking to the Daily Star, said:

“I have challenged him before and would consider taking him on in a one-fight deal. I would beat him and then return to boxing. I’m definitely interested, but the money would have to be right. I am 100-percent up for a fight with him. I’ve challenged him to a fight three times, but he’s a little boy who doesn’t want to fight and has said no to the fight live on television.”

Velasquez told ESPN Chicago:

“I’m not a boxer. I’m a mixed martial artist, and if he wants to fight, he can go into the UFC and work his way up like everybody else does. Nothing is given to you in this world. To me, it’s like, don’t talk about it; go ahead and do it. That’s all I have to say about that. I didn’t know who he was until this. I think he’s using my name to gain publicity, which he has done; everybody is bringing it up.”
