Tyson Fury has been in a bullish mood over the past few days, clearly feeling the buzz of fight week ahead of his first fight since 2015.

The 27 year-old is preparing to face Albanian veteran cruiserweight Sefer Seferi on Saturday night in Manchester before stepping up his opposition over the course of the next few months.

Fury's ultimate goal is to land a massive heavyweight battle with Anthony Joshua or Deontay Wilder, although 'The Gypsy King' is not averse to taking on former pound for pound number one's Gennady Golovkin and Andre Ward despite the huge weight differential.

“I’ve already beaten the lineal champion, I’ve already beaten the legendary champion Wladimir Klitschko, and guess what, I did it easily," Fury told The Mirror this week.

“So put me in the ring with these bums and I will tell you how to put them down — easy peasy lemon squeezy.

“I’m so serious I can’t sleep at night thinking about bums all the time.

“I’m thinking about putting my fist through the side of AJ’s jaw, I’m thinking about knocking Wilder spark out, all 15st of him.

“Putting him upside down on a heap in the floor.

“And if there are any cruiserweights out there, light-heavyweights or middleweights, who want to move up, I will give them a good hiding, too.

“Gennady Golovkin, Andre Ward, whoever... Whoever thinks they are the dons, move up to heavyweight and I will sort them all out," he added.

Still relatively young for a top division fighter, Fury has time on his side to eventually work his way back to the top, with the summer of 2019 earmarked for a potential all-UK collision with current ruler Joshua.
