Tyson Fury did another Tyson Fury in his recent interview with True Geordie, bringing the video call to an end by calling him a “little tosspot” among a variety of other expletives.
The Gypsy King took the time to speak to the popular YouTuber and online commentator – also known for his large stature and love of combat sports – ahead of his upcoming fight against British boxer Derek Chisora.
However, the conversation didn’t exactly go to plan, as the equally opinionated Geordie (real name Brian Davis) fired some fairly hard-hitting questions his way and the Manchester fighter soon lost his composure.
As many on social media have noted, the reaction felt more than excessive, especially given how many have praised the Newcastle content creator for his line of questioning and resilience, saying that Tyson simply didn’t like being challenged and tried to bully his interviewer into compliments over critique.
Fury closes out the interview with a succession of swear words fitting of his surname: “I think you’re a tosser, you little tosspot and I won’t be doing any more interviews with you little toss, bearded, bald-headed tosser. Kiss my balls, you little w***. You little s***house. Suck a d***”.
Oh, and don’t worry, plenty of people have all stated the obvious:
Davis went on to question the world heavyweight champion on issues such as charging fans such high pay-per-view fees to watch him fight a boxer he has already faced and beaten twice before.
The Wythenshawe native’s response was to bring up the Deontay Wilder fights, to which his opposite number suggested that as popular as that trilogy was, his second fight against Chisora ended in “boos” because it was getting “boring”.
MMA and boxing journalist Chisanga Malata wrote: “True Geordie isn’t my cup of tea, but his line of questioning was completely fair. Tyson Fury couldn’t handle it and proceeded to insult him over his appearance”, also noting the 34-year-old’s upcoming charity single for mental health.
At one point, the two just continue to talk over each other as they disagree over the upcoming fight, the subject of sporting legacy and the advent of YouTube boxers. We don’t imagine Geordie will be getting an invite to the fight come 3 December – though ticket sales are said to be struggling.
You can see the heated discussion in full down below. We especially enjoyed the part where Tyson continues to swear like a trooper as he tries to figure out how to end the call:
Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott ‘working on plans’ to screen England vs France game at AO Arena gig
Paul Heaton has said that he’s ‘working on plans’ to screen the England vs France World Cup match ahead of his gig in Manchester this weekend.
Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott are set to play a huge gig at the AO Arena this Saturday – clashing with England’s quarter finals game.
Paul has said that they understand fans ‘might prefer not to miss the youthful looks of Jack Grealish’.
His announcement that they are hoping to show the game has drawn a mixed reaction from fans.
Many welcomed the news that they wouldn’t have to miss the huge match from the Qatar World Cup.
But others said that it would ruin the show, with one person tweeting: “Please don’t ruin the show with that. I’ll be wanting my money back if I’m going to see football rather than the music!”
Paul replied to say: “We won’t. We just have to make sure the place isn’t half full.”
He has now gone on to address the divided opinions on the football being screened at the AO Arena, sharing a photo of himself pulling a silly face with the words: “Me trying to work out what to do next Saturday @England @AOArena.”
Many fans have pointed out that Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott aren’t actually due on stage until 9pm and that, all being well, the game will be over by then anyway.
Others have pleaded that they don’t cut the show short to fit it in around the England vs France game, and wondered what it would mean for Billy Bragg’s supporting slot.
Jacqui Abbott hasn’t been able to perform with the group for the last few shows due to ill health, but it’s hoped she’ll be back on stage with her former The Beautiful South bandmate by the time they gig in Manchester.
The duo offered refunds to anyone who no longer wanted to attend the concerts without Jacqui after she was told to sit them out on doctor’s orders.
But Paul added: “For those who choose to retain their tickets for the next three shows, I promise you that myself & the boys will put on a show to remember. We’ll sorely miss Jacqui but our intent is to make those who refund their tickets bitterly regret that decision. Thanks for your support.”
The pair were on the receiving end of a lot of praise from members of the public after announcing the tour, and capping ticket prices at £30.
They went on BBC Breakfast to speak about rising costs in the music industry while promoting their new album.
He said at the time: “I’m very much against greed in the industry. I feel as though there is quite a lot. We are trying to just battle and say ‘we’ll do it for as low as we can’.”
They also said they want to ‘set a bit of an example’ for the rest of the industry.

Gary Neville is taking The Overlap Live on tour with Roy Keane, Jamie Carragher and more
Gary Neville’s The Overlap has quickly become one of the most popular sports podcasts in the UK and now they’re taking the hit Sky Sports show on the road.
The Overlap Live Tour was announced on Monday, 5 December, revealing four massive live shows across the UK and Ireland in 2023, featuring go-to guests Jamie Carragher, Roy Keane and more.
Due to high demand, a fourth show in Dublin was added to the list of dates which will no doubt please everyone’s favourite irritable Irishman.
The sports discussion podcast and YouTube show gives exclusive insights into some of Britain’s greatest athletes and a behind-the-scenes look at their lives outside of the sporting area.
While Neville and co. have held standalone live shows and fan debates before in the likes of London and Manchester, this is the first official Overlap Tour, with the run ending at O2 Apollo Manchester on 8 June.
Regular host Josh Denzel and Sky Sports’Monday Night Football presenter Kelly Cates will be joining them on their Overlap Live trip around the UK next year.
Used to heated discussion and no-holds-barred opinions, Gary said: “The reaction to the Wembley show has been brilliant so we are delighted to be able to confirm three new dates… It’s fair to say these will be lively shows and I think all three of us know exactly what we are in for!
“As with the Wembley show we’ll be opening up to questions throughout the night, which we might live to regret, but it should be interesting to say the least – particularly for me and Roy in Liverpool! Seriously though, these will all be great nights – so join us if you like!”
