TYSON FURY’S dad John was left fuming after “bigmouth bum” Micky Theo failed to show up for their supposed fight.

The Gypsy King Snr, 56, had challenged Theo to a brawl following a bizarre online feud in which they traded insults and videos.

But John was left proclaiming Theo “couldn’t knock out a w***” after turning up at Manchester Fight Club only to find no one else there.

John then went on a two-minute tirade in which he blasted Theo for not having the bottle to show up.

And at the end of it he proudly proclaimed: “This big bad wolf has finally blown your house down!”

That appeared to put an end to the rivalry, which started after ex-bodybuilder Theo, also in his 50s, challenged Fury to a fight to see who was fittest.

Fury – who said he would spar with Tyson in preparation for this fight – previously made fun of Theo’s request to fight in an auditorium in front of a pay-per-view audience, saying neither of them had done anything to warrant such a show.

The Gypsy King’s dad said he is now “sick” of their videos and wanted to settle it with a fight – but Theo never showed.

John said: “If you really want it, get in your car, come and fight me on Sunday morning.

“Forget all the auditoriums, it’s never going to happen, mate.

“Coronavirus… Eddie Hearn can’t even put a show on, he’s got to put on fights in his back garden.

“So what gives you the right to think you’ve got an auditorium?

“Is the world going to change for you, mate, when nobody knows you?

“You’re making a fool out of your mouth, pal.

“But listen, I’ve seen people like you all my life. I’m in shape, I’m ready to fight, cut the s***e, let’s just fight.

“This is the last video I’m ever going to make and I won’t even mention your name again, mate.”

Theo could be set to fight Fury on Sunday morning

Standing at 6ft 3in tall, John fought 13 times as a professional boxer in the 1980s and 90s with a record of 8-4-1 at heavyweight.

But he made his name within the travelling community for being a formidable bare-knuckle champion, and in 1992 he claims to have won £100,000 for beating the Irish champion.

Theo has revealed he used to spar with his friend and ex-underworld gangster ‘The Guv’nor’ Lenny McClean, who died in 1998 having competed in bare-knuckle and unlicensed boxing.
