Tyson Fury says he’s not a fan of YouTube boxing and would prefer to watch people scrap in his local pub.
The WBC heavyweight champion believes the likes of Jake Paul and KSI are good for boxing but has no interest in actually watching them fight.
Tommy Fury continues to be linked to a fight with Paul and was called out by KSI after after he picked up two wins in one night in August, but ‘The Gypsy King’ isn’t paying any attention as he has bigger fish to fry.
“I’m actually in training camp for a real fight so I don’t watch all that YouTube stuff,” Fury said on The True Geordie podcast.
“Not that I’ve got anything against it, I think it’s great for the sport and the people who do it.”
The man who is currently preparing for a trilogy fight against Derek Chisora, which will take place on December 3 live on talkSPORT, suggested that he’d rather watch pub fights than YouTube boxing.
“It’s great for everybody but it’s not my cup of tea,” Fury added. “If I want to see a real fight, I go down to a Morecambe boozer on a Friday night and I watch a fight.”
True Geordie (real name Brian Davis), who has been involved in some YouTube boxing events, went on to call out Fury for fighting Chisora, who he has already beaten twice.

Approaching the end of the interview, Fury hit back, saying: “No matter what you say, or what people like you wanna say about Derek Chisora, he’s achieved more in boxing and in fighting than ten men like you could ever achieve.
“I’m not gonna just let you sit here and slate somebody who’s fought the best fighters of this era just because he’s lost a few fights. He’s done a lot in the sport and he deserves this payday.
As the interview came to a close, Fury then said: “I think you’re a t*****. You little t***pot. And I won’t be doing any more interviews with you little t***pot, bearded, bald-headed t*****. Kiss my balls, you little w***. You little s***house.”
True Geordie laughed through the abuse and asked Fury if he was having issues ending the video call, to which Fury replied: “Suck a d***,” and the intense interview ended.
