‘The head of the Fury family is here…’ – John Fury joins Twitter as Tyson sends hilarious warning to Elon Musk

JOHN FURY has thrilled his legion of fans by joining Twitter.

For the past two years, Fury – the father of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson and fellow boxer Tommy – has left his Instagram followers in stitches with his hilarious call-out videos of Jake Paul and Eddie Hearn.

But he’s set to take his no-holds-barred and x-rated rants to Twitter after creating an account on the social platform on Wednesday.

In his first tweet, John said: “The Head of The Fury Family is here! How’s it going @Twitter?

Fight fans were quick to comment, with one saying: “Finally!! Welcome, The real Big John!!!”

Another said: “When you thought Twitter couldn’t get better.”

And another said: “This is gonna be legendary.”

One remarked: “The legend has entered the building.”

Another chimed in: “All good John, keep ’em all under control on here, gets chaotic at times.”

Son Tyson quickly revealed John had made a Twitter account due to the “public demand” for him to be on the platform.


The Gypsy King tweeted: “Due to public demand, allow me to welcome my Dad officially onto Twitter: @GypsyJohnFury_.

“@elonmusk are you ready!?”

John has wasted no time in using the app, firing out several tweets in the space of a few hours.

One included a picture of himself and Mike Tyson, who he named Tyson after.

And in another, he tweeted a video of himself demanding Paul honour his all-or-nothing bet with son Tommy – who beat him in their Saudi showdown last weekend.

He said: “Jake Paul, the moment of truth. Again I say it. You lost the fight, we had a deal in front of millions of people worldwide.

“I expect you to honour that deal. You owe us some money. Don’t come at me with contracts and all that bullc**p.

“I’m a gypsy, I can’t read or write properly – I don’t understand that. We were over there to do a job, we did it.

“And I’m sure you’ll be a great guy and honour what you’ve done.”

Tommy defeated Problem Child Paul via split decision in their Diriyah dust-up, but dad John is open to a rematch.

He told Fight Hub TV: “Well, listen, Jake Paul put up a good fight.

“It was a good fight for the fans. It was a good clash in the desert. Let’s hope there are more big fights in Saudi.

“Jake Paul plays his part. He was under a lot of pressure, Tommy.

“They were calling him out for two years, saying he was no good. But what heart the kid showed under duress pressure.

“Yeah, because Jake Paul is very good, Jake Paul is a strong kid. He comes from awkward angles.

“I told Tommy, ‘Listen, it may turn into a dogfight. We’re prepared for it.

“Jake Paul played his part. Let’s do it again in Saudi Arabia.”
