OLEKSANDR USYK jokingly labelled Tyson Fury a “drunkard” as he called his rival out for a world title unification fight.

Usyk stepped up his taunting of the fellow unbeaten heavyweight when demanding they settle “who is the best in the world”.

But the Ukrainian’s cheeky comment about drinking is at odds with Fury’s effort to overcome a string of personal problems.

The Brit even said he went teetotal for a while after a spell of downing up to 12 pints a day – as he tackled mental health issues.

And in fact 34-year-old Fury has been praised for his openness over his previous issues – because it’s encouraged others to seek help.

Usyk, 35, told SecondsOutLive: “I’m appealing to Tyson Fury. Hey, Tyson, borracho (Spanish for drunk/drunkard), let’s make it happen.

“Let’s make a present to the boxing fans.

“Hey, borracho, let’s fight, let’s determine who is the best in the division, who is the best in the world… Borracho, Tyson Fury, you borracho.”

It comes after Anthony Joshua’s two-time conqueror Usyk urged Deontay Wilder to take him on – once he “gets rid” of Fury.

And Fury claims he could have another TEN fights in him.

He told talkSPORT: “I had retirement for four/five months and I didn’t like how it tasted.

“The only thing that gets me going is boxing.”
