Tyson Fury has insisted he will have no hesitation in stepping into the ring with Deontay Wilder, but has told Golden Boy Promotions to come up with a suitable offer.

Unbeaten heavyweight Wilder is scheduled to return to the ring in July and Golden Boy Promotions chief Richard Schaefer said they are "open to" a fight with Fury.

The news filtered through to Fury who became embroiled in a war of words on Twitter. The unbeaten Brit responded furiously to claims that he was not keen on the fight with Wilder.

"Do you think I give a flying f**k what anyone thinks???" was one of Fury's responses to questions. "What am I going to gain from fighting him??"

But when pressed, Fury suggested that the fight could happen if he is given a financial incentive to take on Wilder.

He wrote: "What am I going to get for the risk? Will Golden Boy pay big big money?"

And Fury signed off by stating his targets. "I want Haye or Klitschko."
